Welcome to Perl/Linux. A Linux distribution where ALL programs are written in perl.
Here is a "screenshot":
Perl/Linux 0.9.5 (none) /dev/tty1 (none) login: root (none):/# ls /bin aced chmod edit glob ls ping sort uname aced.pl chown emacs grep mail pr split unexpand apply clear env head mkdir printenv strings uniq ar cmp execsh hostname mkfifo printf stty unshar arch colrm expand id mount pwd sum vi awk cp expr join mv random tail wc basename cut false kill od rev test which bc diff file ldd passwd rm time xargs cal dirname find ln paste rmdir touch yes cat du find2perl login patch shar tr chgrp echo fold look pico sleep true (none):/# ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.1 (none):/# route add default gw 192.168.0.254 (none):/# ping 192.168.1.1 192.168.1.1 is alive (none):/# mount rootfs on / type rootfs (rw) /dev/root on / type hostfs (rw) none on /dev type devfs (rw) none on /proc type proc (rw) (none):/#
See the Perl/Linux project page for project information and CVS access.
Many of the programs came from Perl Power Tools (PPT). Other programs came from Jay Kominek's Perl/Linux page. Other programs, I wrote or enhanced, including: plHttpd (web server), edit (aced based), vi (enhanced aced), mount (enhanced unSlider version), xargs, login, passwd, getty, halt, init, ifconfig, route
The only compiled code in this Perl/Linux system is: Linux Kernel (not currently built with this project), perl, and uClibc.
If anyone is using this project or has interests in development of it, please let me know.

Looks like another case of creativity somehow going completely awry ;)
