   Yeah, I thought the same thing.  I'll not start one, though, if 
you're going to do it.

   Here's the relevant quote from the web page:

   "Formerly, Wpoison was available only as a C language source code 
file which had to be compiled before use. The current version of 
Wpoison  is now written in the widely used Perl language. Perl is an 
interpretive language that requires no compilation step. Because of the 
wide use and adoption of Perl as a language for web applications, 
Wpoison will henceforth only be distributed as a Perl program."
