08:45 scopesoft Having read the FAQ on the rperl website I've a question. It's stating rperl stands for Restricted Perl but I can't find what is restricted and what's not. Can all Perl apps take advantage of rperl?
08:59 bulk88 RPerl is a highly limited subset of perl 5, this limited subset, allows code as fast as writing it in C++
08:59 bulk88 all RPerl code is Perl 5 code, but most Perl 5 code is not valid RPerl code and will execute through the legacy path (perl 5 Vm)
09:01 bulk88 methods aren't valid rperl AFAIK (i am an amateur), but calculating pi to millions of digits in perl/rperl will be as fast as C/C++
09:08 scopesoft joined #perl11
09:10 scopesoft OK thanks for the clarification, does anybody know what this limited subset is, can't find it on the website
