For example, in theory, P6 autothreading is supposed to automatically distribute a lot of computation over the multiple CPUs in multicore hardware. However, following good dev practice, a lot of P6 optimization has been left till "the last mile" -- which is where I think things are at now.

Okay, thanks. The above, combined with slideshow, told me -- albeit rather verbosely in the latter case -- everythng I needed to know.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

The start of some sanity?

    A follow up note to Patrick's Rakudo performance slideshow. The Rakudo team has only recently begun optimizing the compiler. So, although loops are something like 30x faster than they were 18 months ago, and Perl 6 is now considered fast enough that some folk have chosen to use it in commercial production settings, loops are still about 30x slower than Perl 5. Fortunately, it's been speeding up a lot for many months now and several big jumps are expected over the next year.
