PPerl is a persistent Perl interpreter that was developed in order to reduce the high compile-time overhead associated with running many scripts persistently.
Release Notes: PPerl has been completely rewritten. Rather than pass STDIN/STDOUT over the sockets, it now passes the file descriptors. This makes it faster, and removes all the socket flow control code.
Release Notes: Removed the need for Net::Server, and made some performance and stability tweaks.
Release Notes: This version includes fixes for big-endian architectures, and the addition of -k/--kill option to kill a current PPerl script.
