A tiny bit of beancounting:

ActivePerl, Strawberry Perl, Vanilla Perl and Indigo Perl are "just" distributions of the same sources found on CPAN. They add some patches here and there, some bundle additional software, like a webserver or a package manager. Comparable: gcc on Red Hat, SuSE, MacOS X, cygwin. Same specification, same source, same functions, different binaries.

Rakudo, Pugs, Perlito and friends are based on different sources, implementing (more or less) the same specifications. Comparable: gcc vs. Borland C vs. Microsoft C vs. Intel C vs. Watcom C. Same specification, different source, different functions, different binaries.

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
