"The RTAI RealTime Linux programming interface is now available from a scripting environment. Now released with RTAI 1.2, these Perl bindings greatly simplify the process of learning the principles of programming under RTAI."

"Zentropix, now a Lineo, Inc., company, today announced that a set of Perl bindings is immediately available. Using these bindings, programmers can use the RTAI programming API from a scripting environment, thus giving simple access to a soft real-time programming environment."

"These bindings extend the LXRT technique in the Real Time Application Interface (RTAI) developed at Dipartimento di Ingegneria Aerospaziale Politecnico di Milano (DIAPM) to a scripting environment."

"RTAI facilitates hard real-time programming on a Linux system by using its API within a user-written kernel module. RTAI continued its successful development track by the introduction last year of LXRT. This provides soft real-time support for Linux using a new paradigm. In the next few weeks a further release of RTAI will extend LXRT to include hard real-time mode in user space."
