perl 6 compiler games

[ #16383 ]
I'm slowly working my way through the list of operator updates in Perl 6 and patching the Perl 6 compiler to handle them correctly. The latest patch handles the new concatenation operator (~), and the numeric and string bitwise operators (+&, ~&,+|, ~|, +^, ~^).

It's funny how perspectives shift. These days I'm mostly interested in making features work, though I still stick my hand into design now and then.

There's a good bit of work to be done. Parrot is far enough along that we can even start playing with objects soon. I want to shift it over to using real Parrot lexicals and globals first, though. I've noticed some fragility around variables that makes me want that change sooner rather than later. And... okay, I've got a rather long todo list.

I'll be kept happily puttering for a while. :)

  • Having someone working on Perl 6 who's primarily concerned with making features work (as opposed to talking about how they should work) doesn't seem like such a bad thing to me ;-)
