"Perlito5" Perl to Java compiler and Perl to JavaScript compiler

This is Perlito, a compiler collection that implements Perl 5 and Perl 6 programming languages.

Compile Perl to Java

  • compile Perl 5 to Java source code

  • run Perl 5 directly in the JVM

Compile Perl to JavaScript

  • compile Perl 5 to JavaScript source code; run Perl 5 directly in the browser or nodejs

  • compile Perl 6 to JavaScript source code; run Perl 6 directly in the browser or nodejs

Compile Perl to other backends

Perlito can also compile Perl 5 or Perl 6 programs into one of these languages:

  • compile Perl 5 to Perl 5

  • compile Perl 6 to Perl 5

  • compile Perl 6 to Python 2.6

The following compilers are work in progress - some tests pass, some tests fail. Check the Changelog file for details:
