Day 6: Pugs 6.0.0.

[ #23051 ]
Quite appropriately, on Day 6 of Pugs, I have released Pugs 6.0.0. It is already outdated as we speak -- I fixed some more lexer bugs -- but at least it is a start. I intend to keep a mostly-weekly release schedule of point releases in the near future.

This initial release features:

  • Evaluation of most simple expressions.
  • Junctions and chained comparisons.
  • Interactive shell and #!/usr/bin/pugs support.

The context propagation and user-defined subs are breaking too much things, so they did not make into the release. However, they will shortly land the darcs and svn repositories, so check it out if you are interested.

One of my goals of this project is to keep it dual-cultured. So the source tree is managed with bth svk and darcs; the build system requires both Perl5 and GHC; I will submit my Apocrypha series of design documents as monthly articles to both and The Monad Reader; the project info is on both CPAN and the Haskell Wiki; etc, etc.

On the code front, Juerd has found lots of edge cases in the lexer/parser today, and it's fun to have less-than-two-minute turnaround bug hunting sessions with him on IRC. #!/usr/bin/pugs finally works now, as does pugs -e and echo 1+1 | pugs.

So, all in all it's been a good day. Now announcing on Perl6-*...
