I used it for a while on my Psion 5 a couple of years ago.
It appeared to be fully
functional (except that the list of supported packages was
"short"). However I never really made good use of it
because I had to launch all Perl scripts from the shell,
and EPOC doesn't really work well that way (for me).
For me OPL (the Psion's in-built BASIC varient) with
Macro5 provided a far better was to
add extra facilities to EPOC. The integration with the
rest of the system was better, and it was easier to develop
scripts on the Psion itself (rather than needing a PC).
This was a few years ago however, if there is a better
Perl on the Psion then I would be interested.
PS: I do make extensive use of the Perl Ref Guide on the
Psion, I can't remember where I got it from (I thought
it was here
but I can't see it.
