Oops, sorry about that.  Here is the corresponding "Perl for .NET" stuff I
did earlier this year:

Please note that this is just experimental / research code.  Much of the
Perl language doesn't work there (including all of regex).

The interesting sample code is the extended cross language sample in
/Perl/samples/CrossLang:  it uses an abstract base class written in VB
with the actual implementation of the pure virtual methods in Perl.

I'm busy working on the "new" approach outlined on the page above.  I hope
to have a first version early February.


PS:  Sorry, everything is packaged up as an MSI file, so you'll need a
Windows box to install it to look at the sample code.  If anyone just
wants to see the sample code without actually running it, let me know and
I'll email it to you.
