  • In a recent checkin, Pugs gained the rudimentary ability to back-end to Parrot.

    For those who don't understand the roadmap, here, Pugs is the first step toward a complete Perl 6 compiler. Perl 6, however, requires a parser that is written in Perl 6. Because of this, back-ending to Parrot is an important step for Pugs, as it will allow the creation of the final Perl 6 compiler, written in Perl 6 and compiled down to Parrot byte-code.

    Of course, in its current state, Pugs is incapable of this, but it's getting closer every day.
