The ramblings of a former Australian SaND TSC* Principal Field Technologist

DTrace and Perl

Following a link in a comment from Alan Burlison from Bryan’s blog about creating a php provider, it appears that Alan is very well along the path to having a DTrace provider for perl.

To read a bit more about this, have a look at the mail thread that starts here.

The only suggestion that I’d make is that I’d find perl$target far easier to type than perl_dtrace_execute$target.

Other than that, this looks like a great step forward.

Wow, I had no idea that Alan Burlison was back at Sun. That’s wonderful news. Welcome back (yet another) Alan 🙂

  1. Blame Bryan for the name – I just followed the format he used for the PHP provider 😉
