in reply to Perlix Kernel project

Well, there was also a lot of talk about Perl Power Tools, Tom Christiansen's project to re-implement the unix utilities in Perl.
And an earlier issue of TPJ had some guy talking about a Perl machine, which he never produced.
Just two other unfinished ambitious Perl projects to add to the list...

    I believe the perl machine (shaped like a clam shell?) was an april fools joke of some sort, though more of the 'kernel of truth in humour' sort of thing. I'd think the tough part of a kernel in perl would be ... well, wouldn't the driver level stuff have to be compiled to machine code to get it to work? I mean, if you boot up enough of a kernel to get a perl interpreter working, haven't you just got linux (or whatever) running perl?

    'course there's talk of embedded perl for odd devices, so maybe I should shutup.
