in thread Perl 6 and Perl 5 parsing

Then whats the point in separating compile time and run time in Perl6? In a way so as long there is a BEGIN block isn't that impossible.

In the general case it's impossible to "separate" compile time and run time, yes. In Perl 5 as well as 6.

But please remember that BEGIN and &eval aren't there because one day we looked the other way and they just snuck in. They're there because sometimes we need them as escape hatches when what we want to do can't be done by less crude means.
