I got a new Nexus One phone .
Installed ASE (android scripting environment) and perl.
Here is the hello_world.pl that is installed in the /sdcard/ase/scripts
$ cat hello_world.pl
my $a = Android->new();
The adb shell seems to be very restrictive , I get a permission denied for any command that I try.
opening the interpreter from the ASE app give the following
/data/data/com.google.ase/perl/perl -de 1
and opens the debugger .
