in thread How has Perl affected you?

My only lament, is that Perl5 and all the associated cpan stuff is not available on Android. :-(

Of course it is. Just now I am running good ol' OpenWindows olvwm (SunOS-4.1.3) on my android device (an "old" Samsung Galaxy GT-I9300). Funny thing. Of course, xterm and shells and what not are also running, and so does perl and Tk. For now that is just done using the XSDL apk, which provides an X server. On my rooted Samsung S3, I unpacked a raspian distro into /data/root, mounted thereto as appropriate (/proc /sys /dev /dev/pts) and hey presto! my phone is a usable computer after chroot /data/root /bin/bash

Of course that is just the beginning. Next step is to interface androids shared libraries, interface SurfaceFlinger as a first step, and then scrape all that Java stuff off my phone. I want it back! I've bought that device. I want to use it as it suits me, not as it suits the vendor/app-developer/no-such-agency and whatnot.

Work in progress. A soon as I have a good recipe, I'll post that here on PerlMonks.

perl -le'print map{pack c,($-++?1:13)+ord}split//,ESEL'

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
