aridzonan has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Enlightened Ones, I'm not selling anything. However, I'm interested in PERL applications on SBC's. Here's a link to an SBC vendor that supports PERL Question, does anyone have any experience with PERL in the SBC arena?? Thanks, JQ

    At least one blurb offers assurances As long as you read the fine print... which appears to assume, rather than guarantee, that perl will (x-)compile for the AMTEL processor in question... and that (now stricken) cautionary observation is merely to suggest you do a quick check, as some of the CPU's in your link carry the ARM name.

    In any case, here are a couple links to possible resources:
    google's codesourcery

    Hope this helps.

    PS (update): When posting a link here, enclose the node id or URL in square brackets. For example, [id://1018783] produces Single Board Computers /PERL and [] renders as

    PS2: When (self is) posting a response, I should be sure to read the supporting docs carefully. Had to strike above because I missed a statement appears to say that the SBC in question will run Deb distro.

    If you didn't program your executable by toggling in binary, it wasn't really programming!

    I've not had any experience with the particular product you point to nor Perl in the SBC arena at large. The current SBCs I'm using are Arduinos which are programmed off board using an IDE (runs on Windows & Linux for sure) in C++. (or a variant of C++)

    Seems to me there's a trade off to consider here. Do I want the relative comfort level of having a full Debian installation (and I'm doubting that just a hair) with all the overhead or would I be happier with less overhead and programming everything I need "from scratch?"
