I am proud to announce the launch of our next Kickstarter campaign!  After years of hard work, we are finally ready to KICK IT UP to the next level.

We immediately reached our minimum of $1,701; our goal now is to reach $20K within the next 9 days.

We can do it... WITH YOUR HELP!

STEP 1: Make a generous pledge.
STEP 2: Get your friends to match your pledge.
STEP 3: Get your boss to double your pledge.
STEP 4: Go back and increase your own pledge.
STEP 5: RPERL WILL BE THE FASTEST LANGUAGE EVER.

RPerl v1.1 Released, Kickstarter Campaign Officially Complete!

1 like

Howdy Loyal RPerl Backers,

RPerl v1.1, codename 'Jupiter', has been released to CPAN!

Jupiter supports fully-automated compiling of the long-awaited N-body application software, which is a solar system simulator used by the Alioth Benchmark Game to rank programming languages by speed.

RPerl and the new PhysicsPerl software suite enable the N-body app to run at the speed of C++, dropping from over 19 minutes runtime to barely 13 seconds!

For now, see the INSTALL notes file for instructions on running N-body using RPerl & PhysicsPerl.

Also, take a look at the pre-release user documentation, Learning RPerl!

Please visit us on IRC for real-time tech support:

irc.perl.org

#perl11

Release of RPerl v1.1 marks 100% completion of this Kickstarter campaign, because support for the N-body application was our stretch goal achieved at $500 successful funding.

STAY TUNED FOR OUR NEXT EXCITING KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN, COMING SOON!!!

Perling,

RPerl v1.0 Released!

3 likes

Greetings Loyal RPerl Backers,

After over 2.5 years of work, I'm very proud to (finally) announce the full release of RPerl v1.0 on CPAN!

Installation should now be as simple as:

$ cpan RPerl

OR

$ cpanm RPerl

For more information about install options, please see:
https://github.com/wbraswell/rperl/blob/master/INSTALL

As outlined in step 3 of the install notes file, we can now automatically compile our test program and see speed improvements of approximately 170x to 350x, depending on your system.

As usual, the RPerl technical team is in #perl11 on irc.perl.org so don't hesitate to reach out if you need help or have any questions. Let the bug reports begin! :-)

We've come a long way, and we've got a long way to go yet, this is just barely the beginning! 

Perling,
