Perl 6.0.0 is out - merry X-mas!

It is not my achievement, just noticed Wendy's posting on fb, and now I am busy building it. Perl 6 is there since a minute to ten pm, GMT.

    And overall perl6 performance of perl6 keeps improving: Native pure-perl6 Text::CSV is faster than Text::CSV_XS in combination with Inline::Perl5. The Perl6 ecosystem (CPAN for perl6 for now) keeps growing and the documantation is improving every day.

    I wholeheardedly agree with the thank-you words that Damian Conway wrote on his blog.

    Thanks to all developers that enriched out programming landscape and -culture. Even if you will never ever use this language, I think it is worth looking at: you will also learn from things you do not like. Be surprised however about all the things you now can do with it already.

      Native pure-perl6 Text::CSV is faster than Text::CSV_XS in combination with Inline::Perl5.

      The performance of Inline::Perl5 must be abysmal then. What's the performance of Perl6 (FOR GAWD'S SAKE AT LEAST DROP THE SPACE FROM THE NAME OF THE OTHER LANGUAGE!) Text::CSV compared with Perl Text::CSV (not CSV_XS)?

      Jenda
      Enoch was right!
      Enjoy the last years of Rome.

        Today it is (time in seconds needed to parse 10_000 lines of CSV with 5 fields each):

        Perl5 0.016 Text::CSV::Easy_XS 0.016 Text::CSV::Easy_PP 0.033 Text::CSV_XS using bind_columns () 0.037 Text::CSV_XS 0.504 Text::CSV_PP (Text::CSV) 1.295 Pegex::CSV Perl6 17.474 Inline::Perl5 + Text::CSV_XS line-based 17.057 Inline::Perl5 + Text::CSV_XS IO-based 18.182 Inline::Perl5 + Text::CSV_PP (perl5's Text::CSV) 13.577 Text::CSV (perl6's Text::CSV) 49.948 CSV::Parser

        There are plans to work on optimizing NativeCall soonish, so all timings using Inline::Perl5 might speed up because of that.

        The timings for Text::CSV::Easy_?? are timing the use of a module that only parses 100% valid CSV. It offers no options to deal with abnormalities.

        Given these numbers, we (the perl6 community) still need an overall performance gain of a factor 27 (13.6 → 0.5) to be able to say that pure-perl modules in perl6 are as fast as comparable pure-perl modules in perl5.

        Personally I don't envision perl6 becoming as fast as perl5 with dedicated XS code, as Text::CSV_XS, at least not in the foreseeable future.

      I am not CSV user, but - if anyone says me that Inline::C does not give you enough performance - then there is something wrong with implementation.

      How come some XS module utilizes Inline::C?? When you're using XS - you already at C level. What a design requires you to use Inline::C

      Therefore your sentence about performance is not convincing, and even - other way round - I now suspect there's something hidden in calculation here.

        perl6 module Inline::Perl5 which (using perl6 module NativeCall) loads perl5 interpreter which then loads perl5 module Text::CSV_XS ...

        This includes at least four levels of indirection, none of which includes perl5 module Inline::C

    FWIW, I switched an alias I use somewhat frequently (mostly for test code/data or for throwaway passwords) to generate UUIDs. Problem isn’t important, just that it was easy to do. Install–

    ~>git clone https://github.com/tadzik/rakudobrew ~/.rakudobrew ~>export PATH=~/.rakudobrew/bin:$PATH ~>rakudobrew build moar v6.c ~>rakudobrew build-panda ~>panda install UUID

    Switch alias from Perl to Perl6–

    ~>which uuid uuid: aliased to perl -MData::UUID -le 'print Data::UUID->new->create +_str' ~>emacs .aliases ~>which uuid uuid: aliased to perl6 -MUUID -e 'say ~UUID.new' ~>uuid ed10881e-dac6-431a-a8ae-9ba2a49be8bc

    So here we are one year later. Who is using Perl6 and what are you using it for?

      I'm developing a Perl 6 based GraphQL implementation.

      It isn't ready for public release yet, but if anyone is interested, contact me.

      I'll also be describing it a bit at the January Philadelphia Perl Mongers meeting.

      It is my first real Perl 6 project, and I've been very impressed. I still have a tendency to try doing Perl 5ish things, it is a bit of an adjustment, but once it clicks, I have a real appreciation for the thought that went into the Perl 6 design.

      Thank you so much to all of those who contributed to it over the years. I know it has been a long and trying ordeal, but I really think the final product (6.c) has been worth it. I look forward to the rapidly improving implementations of it (Rakudo/MoarVM) ultimately fulfilling that vision.

      I dabble with it from time-to-time just to keep familiar with it, and I started writing a logging module with it for learning purposes a while back (had to abandon it due to lack of time, but it's still there for later), but I don't use it for anything outside of just playing around.

      Same here, I use it for play and read on Perl 6 posts for (self-) education.

      I've been spending time elsewhere, most notably in end-user training in the last 12 months.

      Cheers, Sören
