Being a programming teacher with Spanish speaking students is always difficult because it forces them to learn to program while in a very uncomfortable and, for them, error-prone foreign language. I recently stumbled upon Perligata, which allows Perl to be written using Latin. I decided to see if a module could be made to allow Perl to be written in Spanish (or any other language for that matter). Like Perligata I want to translate the reserved words and built-in functions, but unlike Perligata I want to use the standard Perl grammar (Perligata uses Latin grammar and punctuation rules).
Does anyone have any suggestions for how to proceed? If there's full/complete tokenizer for Perl 5, I could used a source code filter (like Filter-Simple), but I can't use the Perl C code. Or would there be simpler ways in Perl 6, with which I'm not very familiar? - Thanks
