Some power of Mystery dragged me into hacking v6.pm over the weekend. It now passes 785 tests from the pugs test suite.
It's a very interesting process to make the tests pass, and in fact it's quite trivial most of the time. It is also a great chance to learn Perl6 - by implementing it!
If you have a few spare hours and want to have some fun, in the meantime helping out the perl6 project and reusing your perl5 skills, you can start with the parsed but failed tests - they have perl5 version of the perl6 code generated in the
make build_perl5; perl util/src_to_blib.pl
There might be a few modules missing, install them from CPAN. You will see the tc files after you run the tests. I think subroutines/
you can also see the test output at the output, and identify what fails to parse at all. Starting with t/statements/ might be a good idea.
And, of course, get on irc.freenode.net #perl6, see you there!
