Re^7: Perl 6 and performance
in thread Perl 6 and performance
Depends on the area you look at. But what does that have to do with Perl 6 (which, again, is a language, and not a compiler) being ignorant of prior art?
Your criticism comes out like saying "C is not <adjective>" because a C compiler you happen to have worked with isn't <adjective>. Which isn't very educated at all.
I'm happy to revise my decision if you can come up with several examples that illustrates where the Perl 6 designers are ignorant of prior art.
