in reply to Perl 5 Compiler, Again!

perl doesn't compile into bytecode; it compiles into several complex internal data structures, such as OPs and stashes.

An attempt was made to emit this as portable bytecode with B::Bytecode, but it was found IIRC, to take longer to load the bytecode and convert back into perl's internal structures, than it did to just recompile the code.

[Lady_Aleena]: This evening, I thought to myself, "I would love to search Netflix for 100 randomfilms from my database to see if they have them." So I went to CPAN to see if there were a modiule which could do such a thing. There is, but GUH! ...
[Lady_Aleena]: ... Does it have to be that hard and complex to use to do a search on Netflix?
Lady_Aleena grumbles.
[Lady_Aleena]: I really need to get back into the swing of Perl. I'm forgetting things from lack of use. I don't know how behind I am too.
