Perl for Python

Perl as a Python package

The power of Perl in Python is just a pip install perl away.

Read the documentation, install it from pypi, or grab the code from github.

Haven't you always dreamed of having the power of Perl at your fingertips when writing Python?

Well, this package is proof that dreams can come true:

$ pip install perl
$ python
>>> import perl
>>> value = "Hello there"
>>> if value =~ /^hello (.+?)$/i:
...     print("Found greeting:", $1)
Found greeting: there
>>> value =~ s/there/world/
>>> print(value)
Hello world

Note: This is very silly and probably shouldn't go anywhere near production code.
