Hi all,

Are there any online resources about compiling to Perl? Any
information about existing compilers or things to consider when
writing such a compiler will be appreciated.

Background: I'm looking for ways to use a saner language than Perl or
PHP for CGI scripts that we write for money. Customers being what they
are, most will be hosted on some third-party server, so the only thing
that we can really rely on is Perl/PHP. I'm asking about Perl because
I believe it is more stable, more secure and faster than PHP. I'll
reconsider given the right arguments :-)
