I was looking for Cogent (David Hand)'s module that allowed you to write
Perl in Latin in Klingon that parsed Javascript, I think? But all I found
was Conway's Latin<http://search.cpan.org/~dconway/Lingua-Romana-Perligata-0.50/lib/Lingua/Romana/Perligata.pm>&
but reminds me, Conway's Game of Life - Damian's and the
original <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conway's_Game_of_Life>, written to
run in perl, was also a small milestone too, no?
