To clarify: perl already has several compilers: B::Bytecode, B::C, B::CC and Faster. RPerl is very similar to Faster, it just provides no magic and types pragmas for further optimization possibilities.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
