    bkuhn writes "I have rekindled the perljvm effort to port Perl to the Java Virtual Machine. As was discussed in my paper at TPC 4.0, integration with GNU Kawa is now the focus, with an eye on how perljvm will integrate with Perl 6.

    I am also groveling for funding, as I have reduced my paid (well, if you call it that; I do work for a non-profit ;) employment hours for a while to give me time to hack on perljvm. I have put up the first phase as a Cosource.com project, and will put future phases there as well."

    Doug Sheppard writes part four of Beginners Intro to Perl, and Mark-Jason Dominus posted the incisive Why I Hate Advocacy. I'm sure many people will find some things to disagree with in there, and it has a lot of good commentary.

    Robert Rothenberg writes, "Somebody was kind enough to make available a binary of mod_perl for Apache for Windows that works with ActiveState's Perl.

    There are mod_perl builds for various builds of Apache and Perl 5.005 or 5.6.0. I have tried it (but not thoroughly tested it) on Windows NT 4.0 SP6A and ActivePerl build 618 with Apache 1.3.14 for Windows and it works."

    KM writes "IndigoPerl apparently is a binary build of Perl 5.6, and a build of Apache for Win32 systems. It includes a browser based package manager (for pre-built Win32 binary packages). I haven't tried it, I haven't tested it, and I don't know who has."

    I thought I had posted this before but can't find it. So if I have or haven't, here it is anyway. IndigoPerl is what was DynamicPerl, from the same people who do Perl2Exe.

I'm hoping this latest hack from Kevin Lenzo will allow me to add voice synthesis output from Festival."

    Paula Gordon is an interviewer on Atlanta radio, and she did an interview with Larry Wall at the Atlanta Linux Showcase this past October. The interview is online in RealAudio, split into six 5- to 11-minute segments. The hosts are not what you might call "computer experts," and the discussion is high level, about the nature of free software, leadership of free software projects, and more.
