in reply to A grammar for Perl, or something close

Developers would be able to embed a certain safe subset of Perl in their HTML

Juerd has plp, which does something like that.

He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

    It's funny how things come full circle. I had the impression that PHP was developed for exactly the reasons the poster listed, although it seems the real history is somewhat different.

    In any case, people seem to believe that PHP is a simpler, safer Perl for Web development and PHP is certainly a simplified Perl in syntax.

    Juerd's plp appears to be an attempt to adapt Perl to have all the purported advantages of PHP, but it's real Perl.
