in reply to Trying out Rakudo

I think it's too early for "real world" stuff yet. Note that mod_perl6 is being worked on, it's the only application of which I know that lives outside the parrot repository.

As pmichaud pointed out on IRC, the segmentation fault is a problem with the garbage collector, calling parrot with -G (that is no garbage collection at all) makes the segmentation fault go away. (I'm reporting that as a bug right now)

As for feature requests (like %*ENV) I'd recommend to join #parrot on and poke the people there, or send a mail with subject [TODO]: requesting feature %*ENV or something along these lines to

There's a Yapc::NA hackathon shortly, maybe some brave soul feels like implementing it, at least a read-only version of %*ENV.

Update: Jonathan now implemented %*ENV in revision 29377, although it's still limited.

    I totally agree with moritz about sending feature requests to -- this generates an RT ticket that allows work on the feature to be tracked, as well as making it more likely to happen quickly (if it's something that can happen quickly). %*ENV likely falls into that category.

    I've gone ahead and entered an RT ticket for this feature (#55840).
