Announce: ruby-perl gem released

Hi all,

we released today a new gem I think may be of general interest:

https://rubygems.org/gems/ruby-perl

For rubyists:

ruby-perl lets you evaluate and run Perl code within the same binary,
without any heavy-weight forking of sub-processes. Enjoy the
compactness, robustness and maintainability of Perl!

For perlists:

Run your Perl application over industry-standard, enterprise-grade MRI
Ruby, Rack and Passenger!

Check out the post on our blog for more background info:

Cheers,
Andrea

Can you send me (or better yet open an issue on github) with the output
of:

perl -V

Thanks for the bug report,
Andrea

I think I’ve fixed this issue, I would appreciate it if you could try
again.

perl -V

And of course, once rperl is working for you, “rperl -V” will do the
trick too :slight_smile:

Is anyone using ruby-perl in a Phuby on Phails application? I also need
to
interface with a CORBA service and was looking at the zomg gem. Has
anyone
managed to call out to an omfg-generated Ruby script from either
ruby-perl
or Phuby on Phails? I would preferably like to use both… perhaps
someone
can write a phzomg interface to omfg-generated IDL wrapped Ruby? How
would I
then call this with ruby-perl? rupephzomg?

Interesting questions and a clever naming convention.

I didn’t try Phuby on Phails (I should!), but we’re doing something
just as cool.
We use the ST package (http://goo.gl/SaNLM) for perl (nicknamed PeST),
and now with ruby-perl I can run it with JRuby, which spells out JeST.
