I've been trying to find a way to make talking about Android a lightning
talk, but it really doesn't seem like anyone has ported Perl to it yet :(
(To some degree, running Perl on the bare-metal of the device would be
missing the point of Android, so it's more likely that a perl-on-dalvik
implementation would be useful).
I've been watching Ben Evan's work on porting perl to the jvm with
interest though. If that succeeded, we'd have perl on android for free
too. However it does seem to have stalled in the last couple of months.
