What's with "very partial"?

Does Rakudo/JVM pass 100% of the specification tests for P6? No? Then it's a partial implementation of P6.

Imo, if Parrot had been "designed specifically for", or even sufficiently for, Rakudo, then Rakudo would have reached 6.0.0 as Rakudo/Parrot...

Yeah, the sad reality would be a lot different if Rakudo developers hadn't chased away almost all of the Parrot developers with a multi-year campaign of FUD. (Don't believe me? If you're truly interested in an honest accounting, you could ask them.)

[ambrus]: 1nickg: obviously the gamers don't know. but anyway, I need the whole room backlit, because watching a monitor in a dark room (like many people do) is tiring for my eyes, even more so than doing it in a lit room.
[1nickt]: ambrus I agree. I suspect one's eyes are always trying to adjust across the boundary between very bright and very dark ... like a camera's autofocus struggling to choose the target.
