JavaScript-V8 (0.07) *****

An excellent module.

I used JavaScript::SpiderMonkey before but ran into some limitations and decided to give JavaScript::V8 a try. It took me a while to get it to work on OS X, but it was well worth the effort. It was a big surprise for me how well this module integrates those two languages, almost as if they are one. The JS return-types are converted into proper Perl types and the other way around as well. You can even call JS methods easily from Perl, and the other way around. This made my code much simpler and I could remove large chunks of code that was handling the interaction between the two languages. Thanks a lot!
