I really enjoyed hacking with Pugs, but after a while, there were some Haskell extensions that were required which broke my installation and I never got around to upgrading it. Then the minimum version of Haskell was incremented and I kept telling myself "I would get back to it". Yesterday I decided this was important to do. Why?
So yesterday I updated Parrot and Haskell and built the latest version of Pugs. The tests started at Sat May 20 17:08:35 PDT 2006. They ended at Sat May 20 21:42:49 PDT 2006. With over 9000 tests, each test is taking an average of over 30 seconds to run on my laptop.
