  • Neat. What's the performance like? Any stats yet?

      There's some numbers in the May issue of The Perl Review. Off the top of my head, for equivalent things we see about a 4-5x speed increase over perl 5. (In trivial cases, with the JIT, we can see up to a 238x speed increase, but I wouldn't count on that for many things... :) Not counting regexes, where perl 5's Engine of Ultimate Evil wipes the floor with us. We're working on that, though.
