Perlito (linked in my previous message) is a Perl interpreter written in Javascript. Thus allowing you to run a subset of Perl within the browser.

And the HTML standards certainly do allow Perl to be implemented by browsers. <script> has a type attribute which is used to indicate the scripting language. Browsers are free to support whatever scripting languages they like. There is indeed a plugin written by ActiveState providing Perl support for Internet Explorer.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

[ambrus]: choroba: heh heh... I have such a doc bug report somewhere. fixed by now.
[Corion]: Once upon a time I had automatic tests for checking the synopsis, but I stopped doing that because the setup was too fragile on CPAN testers for extracting code from the SYNOPSIS.
[Corion]: Maybe I should move the extraction of the code from the SYNOPSIS section into the author tests, or something like that...
[choroba]: Corion Sounds reasonable
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah - I basically have the same for regenerating README and README.mkdown already, except that I do that in Makefile.PL, but I guess one or the other thing should somehow work ;)
