Since I've started writing perl I have dreamed of writing and testing code on my PDA, but alas this has not been a reality with my palm m100 (see "palm perl porting, problems?
"). But I have recently aquired a Psion Revo (waiting for it to arrive), and I have heard about a port of perl
to this interesting platform. And I ask my fellow monks if anyone out there know anything about it or has tried it. Is it full fledged perl, is it just perl-like, is it a hoax? The file size of the executable is 3mb or so and I can't imagine how they could fit perl into 3mb. Any feedback would be appreciated.
