  The package contains the following directories
      cpp/       (directory containing cpp interface to perl)
      java/      (directory containing java interface to perl)
      bin/       (includes solaris version of libperl.so and jp.class)
      c_examples (example c program accessing PERL
      j_examples (example java program accessing PERL)

  
  Yeah, there are Perl APIs which let you do this, but you need to know a lot
  of function and macros to use the APIs. Besides stack manipulation, argument 
  ordering,... are a problem. The cpp/ directory includes a simple and easy to
  use interface. Just four function calls and you are set to go ...
 
  The directories contain compile_ scripts that tell you how
  to compile the example code and java native interface. A pre-compiled
  solaris library is also available under bin/
  
  You need JDK 1.1.4, g++, Perl 5.002 or higher.
