What, no Assembler? :) Well, ideally perl monks should not have to deal with that, but I do software for new computer chips. I find myself programming in equal parts C, Java, and assembler, depending on the scope of the task, with as much Perl as I can fit in.

    You should write an assembler in Perl, that accepts dumbed down perl syntax. :)
      Great idea, why don't I do that...

      perl -e '$/ = ""; eval <STDIN>;'

      That wasn't so hard. :)

        Oh, I thought you wanted a perl program that could simulate running assembler programs. :) Outputting assembler is definitly non-trivial. I wonder if it could fit in 512 bytes, so I could submit it to the obfuscated perl contest...

        That doesn't output assembler, which I assume you wanted. I was talking about a perl->assembly converter (since my main complaint with assembler is readability, even with m4 codes)
