 it. How perlguts and compiled extensions work. How to peek into perl
 internals with Perl code. How this knowledge is useful.


  * Overview of perl's parse, compile, run process.
  * Possibly some mildly off-topic bits about XS, perlapi, etc.
  * Tour of the B:: modules.
  * Comparisons between B and PPI approaches.
  * Example code, case studies, and esoteric observations.
