[MD1] PerlScript Name Conflict Resolved

TYRELL AND ACTIVESTATE RESOLVE PERLSCRIPT NAME CONFLICT
Name Conflict Ends with Agreement to Cooperate with Marketing and
Development of Perl Tools

August 20, 1997, San Jose, CA -- In a move typical of the Perl community,
Tyrell Software Corp. and ActiveState Tool Corp. have resolved the
PerlScript name conflict in a friendly, cooperative manner. Last month
Tyrell started marketing a product named PerlScript on the Internet.
Confusion quickly ensued between ActiveState's PerlScript ActiveX scripting
engine and Tyrell's PerlScript. "Mark Murphy of Tyrell and I started
discussing what resolution would be the best one for the Perl community,"
explains Dick Hardt, President of ActiveState, "We also started exploring
how we could work together to provide Perl solutions to developers".

"Tyrell has agreed to change our product name from PerlScript to PowerPerl"
says Mark Murphy, Tyrell's Director of Software Development, "We are going
to cooperate with ActiveState in the development and marketing of Perl
technologies, starting with the ASP PowerPak".

PowerPerl brings the power of CGI programming within the scripting ease of
HTML using the number one CGI language Perl. Both novice and advanced users
can immediately take advantage of PowerPerl's abilities. Suited for both
the Internet and intranets, ISPs and system administrators can offer the
power of Perl to their business clients and users without security risks by
using PowerPerl's built in security features. Included is the PowerPak
Starter Kit, an initial set of PowerPerl libraries designed by leading CGI
developers from around the country. This library contains the most
requested CGIs gathered by Webmasters and Consultants for their clients.

PerlScript is an ActiveX scripting engine implementation of Perl that
allows any ActiveX scripting host to use the powerful Perl scripting
language. Popular ActiveX scripting hosts include Microsoft Internet
Explorer and Internet Information Server.

The ASP PowerPak will emulate ActiveState's PerlScript syntax. "The ASP
PowerPak
allows developers to run their ASP pages on all the PowerPerl supported
platforms which includes Unix, WindowsNT, and Macintosh" explained Murphy.

In addition, http://www.perlscript.com and http://www.perlscript.net will
be maintained by Tyrell but will direct users to both products. "Dick Hardt
and I agree", says Murphy. "The Perl community is best served when we work
together. By sharing the perlscript domain pages, we demonstrate our
working relationship while complementing each other's technologies".
