Late to this party, but:

How about forking Perl 2, modding it (and perhaps modernizing some of the C source) as needed, and calling it "CircuitPerl"?

    Why Perl 2 in particular? Where are these sources kept? I tried finding the source with no luck.

    On another note.. I also tried building Microperl in 5.30 and it doesn't build on my Mac.

      It's all in the same repository.

      Microperl has been broken for quite a while, IIRC sometime since like 5.12-5.16. perl5180delta says "microperl, long broken and of unclear present purpose, will be removed."

        Thanks for the pointer !! LOL I did not bother to search GitHub! I always thought the Perl source that was on the CPAN..

        One last thing.. so why specifically Perl 2?
