"Perl .NET is the result of a research project, creating a native code compiler for Perl to the Microsoft .NET Framework. The status of the compiler is experimental; it also supports just a subset of the language."
"Perl for .NET Proxy
"ActiveState will provide an alternate solution to make legacy Perl code available from within the .NET Framework. A new component of the Perl Dev Kit will allow programmers to create a stub proxy object within the .NET Framework, but with the actual code running outside .NET using the traditional Perl interpreter. Method calls and property accesses will be marshaled semi-transparently across this boundary."
"This approach will address these programming concerns. A first version of this new component is expected to become available with the Perl Dev Kit 2.1."
