  • I have a suggestion, which is to try implementing at least some of the benchmarks over at the The Computer Language Benchmarks Game http://shootout.alioth.debian.org/ [debian.org] in Perl 6. Is there someone around here who is interested in trying this out? Perhaps we could make a challenge out of it or something :-)

    I'd really like to see this happen. There's already a shootout/ directory in the perl6-examples repository [1] -- I'll gladly give commitbits to anyone who wants to work on this or anything else in that r

    • I would be very interested in seeing regular outputs and graphs from such a thing, and would put some effort into writing code as tuits become available.

      One thing to consider is having more than one way to do it -- i.e. including multiple versions of a benchmark in regular runs. This would show when things like "$var += 1" and "$var++" have performance gaps or convergence.
