#934 assigned Enhancement

add Perl scripting support

Reported by: WebDragon Owned by: timothy
Component: Colloquy (Mac) Version:
Severity: Normal Keywords: RFE Perl
Cc: colloquy@…


Considering Perl is native on MacOS X, I was rather shocked to see that while Applescript (which I expected), and Python (which I also expected), but also F-Script (Smalltalk? O_o ) and ruby (which I suppose is the up-and-coming) were supported along with Objective-C, Perl was not represented. The huge volume of modules available to Perl for script enhancement purposes alone seems to me to be sufficient reason to spark the effort, but there's another thing...

I have an original script written for another irc client I'd like to port to colloquy for a friend, considering no one else has done so (and thus I'd be the first; I checked. :) but the backend is already written in perl and it seems awkward to me to have to rewrite it.

I'd like to be notified of efforts toward the inclusion of Perl as a scripting option with Colloquy and to help in any way I can despite my currently not having a Macintosh running here to test with.
