So in a previous post I stated that I’m starting to lean towards the use of perl rather than bonescript for the development platform on the beaglebone. Don’t get me wrong bonescript is still a good thing – that I’m sure will go a long way, but I think that the benefits of perl win out in my applications. So far the Beagle Bone web community hasn’t seen to much talk about Perl.
In a comment on a previous post, Scott Penrose wrote about his new perl implementation he calls perlbone – much similar to the Arduino environment alot of us have come familiar with. Scott had setup a Git hub repo,
that has since been removed – I’m hoping to see what he comes up with.
In another corner of the web, Toby Wintrmute has also been hard at work at implementing a perl approach to programming. Toby has too started a Github repo, like bonescript Toby has started pin mapping, SPI and got a LCD screen Running.
Great!! I’m hoping that we can see some collaboration and start pushing forward in numbers! Plus I hope Scott doesn’t mind if we run with his coined term ‘PerlBone’.
Watch this space – better yet, start to code in this space.
