    Talking some questions about symbian perl...

    I just got my first symbian phone e63,I was blackberryer
    I noticed there is a version of perl can run on symbian system? http://perldoc.perl.org/perlsymbian.html
    but I can't imagine how it works,is there a term for input or something like that?
    I know a little about perl programming on linux,so if I can get perl on my cellphone that will be great
    the instruction of Compiling Perl on Symbian seems complicated,and I know nothing about VC++,
    so is there any binary(.sis file) for install ?
    any more information about symbinaperl will be helpful~
    thank you

    Re: some questions about symbian perl...

    The project lists only a few smartphones as supported, from very old generations. To make it work on current S60 devices you would need to port the project, which does require a bit of programming skills. The build was also no intended for CLI use, but rather for integration of perl scripts in native applications.

    If you are interested in scripting languages usable on Symbian devices you may want to have a look at PyS60, a community driven Python port. More at https://garage.maemo.org/projects/pys60/ and http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/fo...play.php?f=102
