  • there's the issues, the kind that inevitably exist in projects at this early stage (both Parrot and Rakudo)

    Parrot, which is more than 6 years old [], is in an early stage?

    • People more intimately familiar with Parrot can probably answer this better than I can, but...

      I heartily accept that "early stage" is a somewhat strange term to use for both Rakudo and Parrot, since the former is much younger than the latter. Perhaps better to say that neither is really mature yet. I know some things in Rakudo are awaiting feature additions in Parrot, which gives me as a non-Parrot expert the sense that Parrot is still under construction. Also, some of the more awful errors one encounters w

      Yes, like UNIX in 1975, Perl in 1993, Python in 1997, or Ruby in 2001.

      The fact that 6 years is old for a video game, application framework, or lolmeme doesn't mean that it's old for everything having to do with computers.

  • Great Post!
