tclperl version 3.1: a Perl package for Tcl

This package allows the execution of Perl code from a Tcl interpreter,
as in:

     package require tclperl
     set interpreter [perl::interp new]
     $interpreter eval {print "Hello World\n"}
     perl::interp delete $interpreter

You can actually create several Perl interpreters this way, if the
tclperl package was linked against a Perl library compiled with
-DMULTIPLICITY, otherwise only 1 Perl interpreter can exist at a time.

Starting with version 3.1, you can also access and use the parent Tcl
interpreter from a Perl interpreter (and even from Perl threads):

     package require tclperl
     set interpreter [perl::interp new]
     puts [$interpreter eval {
         $Tcl::parent->eval('clock format [clock seconds]');
     perl::interp delete $interpreter

This package works on UNIX machines (Redhat Linux rpms available at /) and Windows (thanks to David Gravereaux,
DLL also available). See INSTALL file for more information.
