Thanks for the info!

I looked at kurila and found that, while it is also a Perl 11 type project like RPerl, our differences outweigh our similarities...

From Kurila Intro POD:


Experimenting with the Perl language.
RPerl is only experimenting with speed, not new language features.

Removing ugly things.
Yes RPerl does remove some ugly parts of Perl 5.

Adding ugly things.
Heck no, RPerl isn't adding anything to Perl 5 other than speed, much less ugly things!

Changing old design decisions.
RPerl is only against slowness, not necessarily actual design decisions.

Readable, modifiable perl source.
Okay, sure, we all want more readable code, right? Right???

Kurila is not intended to be compatible with Perl 5.
RPerl compiles low-magic Perl 5 code into drop-in Perl-5-compatible replacement functions. Backward compatibility with Perl 5 and XS is important to RPerl.

Interesting stuff!
