Ponie is a discontinued project to create a Perl 5 interpreter written in Ruby. The idea was to allow programs written in different high-level languages to interoperate more seamlessly by integrating the object systems of the two languages. Although Ponie's development effort has ceased, the project did inspire some features and tools for both Perl 5 and Ruby communities.
