Didn't you first write Marpa in TCL?...

Why I Stuck With Perl
I did write a parser, which I also called Marpa, in TCL, some time ago. (Parsing has been an interest of mine going back even further, to the 70's.) I never looked at the code for the TCL 'Marpa' when writing this one -- the current Marpa is the result of a totally fresh start that I made in 2007.
By 2007, the TCL Marpa had disappeared, and I felt I could safely reuse the name. I still liked the idea of naming a parser after Marpa the Translator, whose story has long inspired me.
