in thread Perl 5 Optimizing Compiler, Part 9: RPerl.org & The Low-Magic Perl Commandments

An implementation of the Perl-5 programming language ... occupies all of about 86 kilobytes of object-code

Ja ja ja...

Hint: ldd is "your" friend.

    Obviously, obviously ...

    The essential point of my thread was of course not a quibbling as to the actual byte-size of “the language-compiler/runtime component,” but rather to emphasize that “the language-compiler/runtime component,” ... nor any low-level details of its implementation ... “is not the real point here.”   Every bit of that “plumbing” is just A Means To An End, and in any case it is a minuscule portion of the total body of source-code that is of professional interest to me.   In the long run, I don’t really care if, say, DBI “runs x% faster.”   But I do rather-profoundly care that it continues to pass 100% of its thousands of tests.

      sundialsvc4,

      Simply put, nothing in RPerl will break your code. It may only give you marginal benefit if you use all high-magic code, but backward compatibility is our goal.

      Perling,

        How 'bout "black-magick" v "white-magick"?
        I'll leave it up to the viewers, to decide to which Perl, one, or the other should be ascribed/applied. :)

        --Chris

        #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
        use Perl::Always or die;
        my $perl_version = (5.12.5);
        print $perl_version;
