PHP/Perl programming language mashup!

(Via O’Reilly Radar) My friend and former Salon.com colleague David Wheeler announced on Saturday that the new version of open source CMS Bricolage supports PHP templating via a new Perl module developed by George Schlossnagle. From the README:

This module provides a way to load a PHP interpreter into your Perl programs. The PHP interpreter then automagically has access to all of the modules and variables loaded into Perl. So PHP executed from Perl can use any Perl modules.

This is so cool and generally amazing (and it gave me the opportunity to debut the word “mashup” on this blog). When you’re remixing at the language level, you’re enabling all sorts of potential. Go Team Bricolage!
