No, you had better stay here. The P5P people would promptly rip your idea apart.

    Anonymous Monk,

    So far both Nick Clark and Dave Mitchell have recommended cautiously engaging P5P.

    Can you please give me more information about why you think they will react negatively?

    Thanks,
    ~ Will

      Please don't feed the trolls.

        Oh, right, sorry.
      1. You want to take away their control, Perl is whatever the interp folks says it is
      2. Larry's stack machine architecture never turned out any good, and they've been forced to live with it and defend it
      3. You are a for profit business trying to embrace extend and extinguish their Perl
      4. Many P5P who spent decades with the Perl source code do not want all their work and knowledge they learned to have been in vain
      5. C#, PHP, Python, Ruby, and Java have multiple compilers/interpreters, Perl does not, thats makes Perl special
        haha

[ambrus]: I really don't like automagic stuff. I'm happy when computers do exactly what I tell them, even if that means they sometimes do the wrong thing.
[ambrus]: And I don't much like syntax highlighters. If you need a syntax highlighter to understand your code, then your code is written unclear.
[ambrus]: And if you need a syntax highlighter to color parenthesis green and numbers black and letters blue, then you're using the wrong font.
[ambrus]: I have to tolerate syntax highlighters when other people use them, but I don't use them myself. And sorry for the rant.
[GotToBTru]: I appreciate the ability to highlight matching brackets/ parentheses/ braces, both for my own code and the inconsistently indented code of others
[Corion]: I like editors that automatically highlight the matching parenthesis (like % in vi), but that's roughly the extent to which I like editor support ;)
[GotToBTru]: same here Corion.
