Perl on my Droid!

Sitting at lunch today I was musing about how cool it would be to be able to program on my phone in Perl.

I have one interpreter on the phone already – Frink – and while it’s and amazing tool it’s not a language I am as familiar with.

So I did a Google search (on my phone) for Perl and Android and lo and behold there is a project called the Android Scripting Environment and they currently have interpreters for Python, Perl, JRuby, Lua, BeanShell, JavaScript and Tcl!

Astounding.

So of course I loaded it right up!
