I have been asked to figure out if there exists a perl for the HP NonStop (previously known as Tandem NonStop, Compaq NonStop) platform. It is not listed among the 34 Supported Platforms in perldoc. There is a mention of it on the perl.perl5.porters mailing list a while back (Aug 2010) but I can find few other references than HP's own marketing material (2007) that contains broken links to their open source information pages.
Any knowledge into the subject is appreciated.

I do know for a fact that perl does run on Tandem as I have used perl scripts before in an old job on an S88008 running G06.11 (i think). It is not on my current systems (different company) G series or H series but that could just mean we did not purchase it or a related product.
I would check with your site's account rep and see if it an orderable item.
