Many of you might think that the idea of porting Perl to the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is silly. In fact, it's not silly, but it's difficult and what would come out of it would be different. The JVM is simply not designed for dynamic languages and its "everything is an object" assumption simply doesn't fit the multi-paradigmatic nature of Perl. However, it's still not a bad idea, just a difficult one.
