I have collected various parts you need for this (mainly a similar BBEdit
extension to run a MacPerl script), but I cannot interface it to the
interpreter at the moment. Or, more precise: I can get the appleevent to the
interpreter, but at the time the interpreter gets the event it will be
somewhere deep down in the stdio/sioux library doing a read from the console,
and I can't think of a good way to get control back to the interpreter in a
This will be fixed when (a) the IDE is finished (since then we'll control our
own eventloop) or (b) we have our own console module (since then we can signal
it to terminate the read). Both/either of these should happen fairly soon.
