in thread The current state of Perl6

I think that won't be the case with Perl 6 as they have found a way integrating existing CPAN modules with Perl 6 code. You are actually very right in pointing out this fact, Its not just a bare interpreter. The word production ready actually has a lot of meanings like availability of sufficient documentation, standard libraries, spec completion, stability etc. But you have to start some where like Python 3 did, there idea is to really backport the Python 3 stuff into 2.x. In their case they have something to migrate to, in our case our migration target isn't yet ready. So the focus should be first on spec completion first not migration.

    Wow! Really? Does anyone have a link to that?

      I think that's a bold exaggeration.

      There's blizkost, which integrates parrot with perl5 (by loading the dynamic perl5 libraries). Currently that works to the point where callbacks in both directions work, simple method calls, numbers and strings.

      Due to a bug in parrot that integration currently can't be used in Rakudo (or in other high-level langugages) for that matter.

      Perl 6 - links to (nearly) everything that is Perl 6.

        see that's what I'm talking about. these bugs are so critical... these bugs alone decide the production-readiness of Perl6 or Parrot.
