Depending on how small you really need to get it, there's also Portable perl: usb thumbdrive.

    The python-on-a-chip page states:

    "This project's goals are to develop the PyMite virtual machine, device drivers, high-level libraries and other tools to run a significant subset of the Python language on microcontrollers without an OS."

    Having a perl on a USB drive isn't comparable with python-on-a-chip, or a conceptual perl on a chip solution.

    Update: For example, Portable perl: usb thumbdrive requires the Microsoft Windows OS, overkill/outwith the capabilities of most microcontrollers. The OP didn't ask for a cut down or portable version of Perl.
