Today's Perl 6 Meeting Notes

[ #28089 ]

        - Stevan and Audrey are working on PIL2 minilanguage
        - they want to talk about how to optimize it
        - I'll corner Allison and have her show me how to hook it up to TGE

        - probably won't have my Parrot day until Friday
        - I still plan on working next on supporting more operations in Punie
        - probably will do a whole pile at once
        - I need to genericize it not to parse on the name of the operation
        - "there's an identifier here"
        - then add a step to do semantic checking
        - check for only valid operations

        - sounds like what PIL2 needs

        - very co-useful

        - is Roberta back in town?

        - we're supposed to talk to a Perl-friendly company soon
        - not sure if it'll work during the holidays
        - will send out a few more review copies

        - I'm porting PGE to Perl 6
        - it's really fast
        - I can do the fundamental operations in an hour
        - haven't found the easiest way
        - will probably look at how PGE does it
        - using CPS, as it's easy for the easy stuff
        - the general quantified style isn't as easy that way
        - coming along a really well
        - Perl 6 is a nice language to write in, compared to PIR

        - is this as an exercise for fun?
        - is it for a chunk of Pugs?
        - does it eventually need to happen?

        - all three
        - our best backend, which is JavaScript right now, doesn't even have rules
        - that needs to happen to get stuff out fast

        - if the lowest level you guarantee to support is the HLL, you have to
            implement a lot of stuff in the HLL to support it everywhere

        - what's your status of outstanding design decisions?
        - it'd be nice to get a concrete list of missing design
        - what we need for 6.0
        - it seems like that'll become a list of blockers soon
        - we're getting runnable implementations that run
