  • Since you had to detour into Perl 5 anyway, maybe you might stop by Moose [cpan.org] and try out our Roles. They should match the basic role composition rules which Perl 6 will follow, minus some fancier features like parameterization. If nothing more, Perl 5 classes tend to be easier to generate programatically using Moose and Class::MOP then doing all that symbol table hackery yourself.

    • While perl5 may be used for the code generation, it's a key goal of the current grant-funded java2perl work that the output be valid perl6.

      It would certainly be good for it to be able to support generating perl5 code in the future - and Moose would make sense in that context - but it's not part of the current work.
