Is it extended to the unix world? My understanding of PerlNet was that
it worked by interfacing between the regular win32 perl interpreter and
the MS CLR - not by compiling perl code to normal managed code. The MS
CLR interfaces that it would use are not replicated by mono, so I
suspect it doesn't work on a unix.
