Perl 6 on Parrot Roadmap

[ #34973 ]

On Friday I wrote up a brief ROADMAP for Perl 6 on Parrot development, and rather than repeat it all as a journal post I'll just link to it.

It really does describe where we've been, and where we're going in the next couple of months as far as Perl 6 development.

If you're wondering where this fits -- right now I'm aware of three Perl 6 implementations underway:

  • Pugs - Haskell-based implementation (
  • perl6 - Parrot-based implementation (
  • KindaPerl6 - Perl 5/6-based implementation (

So, the implementation I've been focusing on is the one for Parrot, and that's where my journal entries will tend to focus.

More soon...
