in reply to Installing Perl on the Sharp Zaurus PDA
Installing Perl is a bit easier to do if you flash your Zaurus (mine is a SL-5500) with one of the OpenZaurus Project's ROMs. The installation of the Embedix kernel and OS is much more true to Linux. So installing Perl to the SD flash card is as easy as getting the familiar package (*.ipk), and typing ipkg -t sd install perl.ipk. (-t uses a non-default installation target).
Vim, kate, and MicroEmacs are all available for the Zaurus and syntax highlighting is available for all of them. (gcc also works on the Zaurus, but don't hold your breath waiting for stuff to compile...).
In addition to the excellent links in the root node, anyone interested in learning more about the Zaurus (or about their Zaurus) should have a look at the unofficial Zaurus FAQ.
