  • it's pugs' parrot compiler backend I'm excited about. Assuming a language is targeted to either parrot bytecode or IMC (and possibly AST -- haven't tried that) the HLL layer for language Foo can be written in Foo. No additional C, Haskell, or IMC is required. So we should be able to write the mod_pugs layer in Perl 6.

    Now, I have yet to demonstrate that this works with a language other than IMC, but it looks like Pugs will soon have the necessary OO support so I can try it out.

    I _do_ plan on learning Haskell though -- I really don't like the feeling of illiteracy when browsing the Pugs source. ;-)
