What with ESR's religious-war-by-the-backdoor plans to make
Kernel configuration dependent on Python, Tom Christiansen's
slow descent into Kurtz-esque insanity on the
perl5porters list and Segfault's recent revelation that all
Perl core development is to end because Larry says
"a language is syntactically complete when you find a use for
every bit of the keyboard", it's not been a good Spring for Perl.
But the camel has many humps, and if all else fails, the
loyal mongers can alway hack up an escape route. Easing the
transition to the promised land is LANGUAGE::BASIC, a new Perl
module that provides complete emulation of the latest BASIC
dialects - if your real time clock stopped around 1980, that
is. Special features: ON... GOSUB and DEF FN. Free code to
"Hunt the Wumpus" included! Let's go!
- no RESTORE statement though. damn.
