Hey Will, me again. Same problem.

Too much hype and not enough fact.

You want to atract interest and maybe investment? Stop trying to sell; and simply demonstrate.

Pick a problem. Write a piece of (non contrived; non-simplistic) Perl code that solves that (real world) problem; and the Benchmark it (the exact same script):

  1. Under bog standard perl (say 5.20);
  2. And again under RPerl running under (over; in concert with) the same version of Perl.

Publish the script. Publish the command sessions to run both versions. And publish a straight forward, line-by-line, textual, command line session to down load and install all the requirements of RPerl.

Forget the hype. Forget the videos. Forget fancy meaningless graphics and js-heavy websites.

One, simple, plain html(4) page of text that gives us:

  1. Where to obtain and how to install RPerl over a recent version of Perl.
  2. The script being tested.
  3. The results (actual timings) of the two runs.
  4. The command lines required to run both tests to reproduce your results for ourselves.
  5. A simple bullet point list of what constructs are supported (or those not supported if shorter). Now, in the current available version.
  6. A clear list of the goals of the funding you seek. (Bullet points that show what that is currently not supported that can be with more funding.)

Do all of that; and you might encourage people to look; to try; to access; and maybe, fund.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority". I knew I was on the right track :)
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
I'm with torvalds on this Agile (and TDD) debunked I told'em LLVM was the way to go. But did they listen!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
