OK, I'll bite. Please explain how a compiler can deal with this:

By not dealing with it, see Perl 5 Optimizing Compiler, Part 9: RPerl.org & The Low-Magic Perl Commandments

    OK, so basically it can compile "P" but "erl" isn't supported.

    -- FloydATC

    Time flies when you don't know what you're doing

      Compile P and link it back in, erl never knows the difference but your code runs way faster.
      Also, "isn't supported" is wrong; P is the only part that can be statically compiled, erl must be dynamically interpreted. Eventually we can do JIT dynamic compilation on erl and combine with static compilation on P to get the fastest possible, then we will be faster than Java and close to C. Then I will stop flogging the "dead horse", because it will be a live Camel and Roadrunner!
