While we are on the subject, of a "Perl browser plugin" , like the libjavaplugin_oji.so in our browser's plugin directory; what has stopped the Perl developers from doing this? From my limited understanding, the java plugin is just a java interpreter with the functions which pose a security risk removed, leaving only simple computational and display functions, and which limits display in the parent's (browser's) allocated window.

When I build Perl, I see the mini and micro Perl interpreters, which are limited versions. Would it be that hard to modify those to be a secure browser plugin? Then maybe add a chopped-down Tk or Gtk2 display engine to it? Now I wish I studied c in more depth. :-)


I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth. Cogito ergo sum a bum

    [marto]: "Eugenie Scott, executive director of the National Center for Science Education, dubbed this approach the Gish gallop, describing it as "where the creationist is allowed to run on for 45 minutes or an hour, spewing forth torrents of error that the
    [marto]: evolutionist hasn't a prayer of refuting in the format of a debate." She also criticized Gish for failing to answer objections raised by his opponents"
    [erix]: one would hope evolutionists haven't any prayers anyway
    [marto]: obviously someone could be religious, but not creationist
    [erix]: "Nothing in Intelligent Design makes sense except in the light of Creationism" <-- I made that one up myself (free after Dobzhansky )
    [erix]: yes. Deplorable marto, deplorable.
    [marto]: the situation seemed similar to this one, majority of the contributrions are nonsense, doesn't address any questions ...
    [marto]: meh, I've been called worse :P
