in thread Perl, the right tool for the job?

"I stated that perl couldn't be used for the tablet part"

Before you flame, I suggest you check your premise.

A google search for terms("android" "Perl") produces dozens of hits... including these for the first five:

  1. https://www.socialtext.net/perl5/android
  2. http://szabgab.com/perl-on-android.html
  3. http://arul-jegadish.com/release/?p=35
  4. http://code.google.com/p/perldroid/
  5. http://radar.oreilly.com/2009/06/scripting-comes-to-android.html

Given the number of reputable fora there, I'm led to suspect that one or more would prove useful in terms of running Perl on an Android tablet (but no, I didn't do any more of your research for you). In any case, even if none of those hits and the hundreds which follow 'pan out' for you, it was a valid suggestion, in the face of an inchoate question.

To your "Did you even try a websearch for "bluetooth" or "network"" the answer is "no" ...because I suggested '"bluetooth" AND "network"' (emphasis supplied) ... and if that forces you to review the hits "several pages in" -- why, I say 'aw, gee, I'm sorry, poor, abused little OP.'

But, were it not for the tenor of the reply overall, <sarcasm> I might be tempted to ++ it, for including a critical element: the range of tablets </sarcasm> (but, on the other hand, probably not).

<ill-tempered Note:> List Items deliberately not linkified, with malice aforethought. </ill-tempered note>

Now excuse me, please, while I rinse the acid off my tongue... and out of my eyes.

    Ooooh, aaaah and on the first screen of one of those two (do your own looking) is this link:
      http://code.google.com/p/android-scripting/
    What? Google has a link? Whodathunk? Shucks, the page even has a QR code block to lead you on the way.

    Now to avoid hours of yak washing and phone mangling.
