I'm not quite sure if you get what we're trying to do. We're not writing a compiler IN Perl, we're writing one FOR Perl. That basically requires us to figure out a way to take Perl's parse tree and somehow encode it into an executable such that we can regenerate it. (crazyinsomniac--I'll be sending you an e-mail soon explaining my idea for this.) The perl source will do all of the parsing for us--we're just parsing its parse trees, so to speak.

Besides, even if we *were* writing a compiler in Perl, we'd probably use Parse::RecDescent. It's easily powerful enough to parse C, and supposedly the next version will be able to parse Perl.
