Scripting Layer 4 Android
Talk is "Perl" is available for the Android Phones well it is and it isn't, in order to run any scripts you must run them in an emulator this is what the "sl4a.apk" program does. Why, I ask myself, Perl runs on many platforms so why not Android, I can not answer that question all I know is that in order to run Perl you need an emulator to do it.
Well here it is everything you need to install Perl just go to the following location and download each of the apk files you require, you should do this from the Phones own browser or at least it is easier if you do.
There are a number of packages you could install but the most important to start with is "sl4a.apk" then you can choose any or all the remaining apk files on the page for this application. You need only install the apk files from the items available, remaining files are components to the apk.
Locate the "perl_for_android.....apk" from the featured list on the right of the above URL.
Ok nothing to do with Perl but if you want to learn about Android programming then this page might be a good place to starthttps://developer.android.com/training/index.html
