Perl5 to Java compiler - first release
This is the first release of the Perl5 to Java compiler.
In the github page there is a link to the "jar" file and the lib directories for JVM-specific Perl modules.
The "perlito5.jar" file provides a perl-like command line:
java -jar perlito5.jar -I src5/lib -e ' print "hello, World!\n" '
Note that you don't need to compile a Java file. Perlito5 now compiles the Perl code to JVM bytecode in memory and executes it. Also eval-string is executed as JVM bytecode - there is no interpreter.
Perlito5 is an implementation of the Perl5 language. It is work-in-progress. It provides an impressive coverage of Perl features, but it will not run most existing Perl programs due to platform differences.
