Currently, it only works on Linux, even though setting up a build is easiest on that platform - the plan is to shake the bugs out there and also to get help porting it to Windows and Mac, where building is a lot harder.
The web page is up, and I'm looking for lots of good feedback. Please, try it out and let me know what you think. And if you are a Perl hacker on Windows or Mac, I'd also like to hear from you :-)"
I need help with the porting. Can you help? :-) Version 0.2 (up now) should work on Windows (with Cygwin) in theory - but I need people on Windows to test it out and see.
