[ #30455 ]

Greetings, fellow primates!

I've just presented version two of "Parrot: Evolution" at OSCON 2006, and this is the URL I offered to the attendees. If you didn't see the talk, or you want to re-live that astonishing afternoon, please enjoy my presentation.

If you're interested in helping with Parrot, or if you want it to do something it doesn't do (which is also helpful), please post here, and we'll figure out the next step.

  • I've always thought it would be nice if Parrot could mmap(MAP_PRIVATE) the bytecode.

    That way, if you have 50 instances of your huge portal architecture running, you only take the memory hit once (or most of it only once).

    Granted - Linux w/vm overcommit and Apache prefork emulates this behavior somewhat; it would be nice, though, if the shared memory didn't depend on fork()'s CoW semantics.
  • thanks for posting the slides. parrot is looking better every day.
