in reply to Perl Interpreters

I think most monks would agree that there's only one interpreter/compiler that unarguably deserves to be included in a list, namely the standard perl binary stewarded by P5P.

Perhaps because I see things thru P6 colored spectacles, I think the nascent v5 is promising. v5 is a Perl 5 interpreter/compiler project led by FROGGS. Architecturally it's a P6 slang ("sub-language") and relies on the NQP compiler toolchain project originally written to support Rakudo P6 but in principle a user doesn't even have to know it involves P6. It's gotten a quick start by stealing from the Perl 5 grammar STD_P5 written (in P6) by Larry Wall.

    Nascent means it passes 13% of the language tests and none of the module tests? Even by your standards ralph that's a poor showing!

[marto]: hmm, may have to patch CPAN::Meta to move from search.cpan to metacpan in the META.json/yml files
[Corion]: marto: Heh - it seems that they plan to keep the links alive for a long time. But still, I plan on moving PM to use/generate the new links
[Corion]: And I think it's better to generate links to the new world instead of keeping the older links alive by generating new versions of them ;)
[marto]: yeah, I guess it's supposed to be a permanent redirect, but better to make the move where possible
