  • 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'll see what I can do.

      Some of the benchmarks are inspired by bioinformatics and I might try having a go at these since I am familiar with these kind of problems (I guess this is a fairly typical stance for "non-programmer" programmers, it being far easier to solve tricky problems if they relate to other concepts you are familiar with, such as biology and DNA data in my case).

      However, it will need to wait for a few months since I am hoping to finish my thesis in July :-)

      I'll definitely continue looking at and trying out Perl 6 in the meantime.
