    OK, thank you for the clarification. :-)

      Great questions! Anonymous Monk is correct in pasting my copyright notice, all the code for RPerl is copyright in my name and made available under the Artistic and GPL licenses, just like Perl itself. This means that a company can use the software without paying for it, but a company can NOT re-sell RPerl without the source code as they could under a BSD-type license. So wherever you use Perl you can use RPerl.

      You are correct about being able to combine low-magic RPerl with high-magic Perl. The 10% of your code could be written using RPerl and give you a speed boost.

      The current state of RPerl development is available for anyone to see on Github. I've created typemaps for the basic scalar, array, and hash data types, and I've hand-compiled a sorting algorithm into both RPerl's Perl-data mode and RPerl's C-data mode, which is what gives us our legitimate performance benchmarks. I'm working now on the automated compiling of said sorting algorithm, which is part of RPerl v1.0.

      Please do not hesitate to ask me more questions, I am very interested in communicating with potential RPerl users such as yourself. Thanks!

[1nickt]: Now that one made me hopeful! First time not angry in a long time when I saw that kid.
[Discipulus]: i propend for removing: why? because we are so few that we must find i minimal common divisor, this is certainly Perl not our (anyway private) thougths. And i say this still wondering because i love a lot freedom of expression. And i say this not for roho
[1nickt]: Discipulus that was the point of my story of taking the sticker off my truck. I know there are lots of people in the world who if I knw their private beliefs I might want to argue with them. And they with me. But life cannot all be arguments!
[1nickt]: This is less than perfect ... but demanding perfection (from people or from life) is a sure way to unhappiness.
[Discipulus]: and anyway we have CB where every (democratic) opinion can be expressed
erix eat the rich!
[1nickt]: I do think it is sad that roho has received 3 downvotes for his polite request, as did I when I objected to the profanity in stonecolddevin's sig. I upvoted both him and Karl for the discussion. Way too much downvoting for inappropriate reasons here!
Discipulus learn that 'argue' has a little negative sense, he thought was a neutral sense, 'vox media'
[1nickt]: argue == discuss && argue == be contentious
