( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Just reporting here, mostly verbatim a clpmisc announce (link @ GG). May be of some relevance to all those of us who love Perl (anyone here? ;-) and like to play...

From: andrew at trevorrow dot com (Andrew Trevorrow)

Golly is an open source, cross-platform Life app which uses Gosper's hashlife algorithm to allow the exploration of patterns at unprecedented scales and speeds. More details are available at Golly's web site.

Golly has been using Python as its scripting language, but the following 1.3 beta versions now support Perl as well:

See Help > Perl Scripting for all the details.

A number of example .pl scripts are included in Scripts/Perl/. I don't have a lot of experience with Perl so it would be nice if a Perl expert could run their eye over my code and check for any bloopers or inefficiencies. Other Perl scripts would be most welcome.

Golly uses an embedded Perl interpreter to run .pl scripts and should work happily with any Perl 5.8.x installation. Please let me know if you have any problems.
