in reply to Perl 5 Compiler, Again!

perl doesn't compile into bytecode; it compiles into several complex internal data structures, such as OPs and stashes.

An attempt was made to emit this as portable bytecode with B::Bytecode, but it was found IIRC, to take longer to load the bytecode and convert back into perl's internal structures, than it did to just recompile the code.

Corion is slowly, slowly relaxing. Yesterday I spent vegging out in front of the PC, today at a friends, and hopefully I have the books for our Perl club done by Monday. I guess I'll only really relax once I get back from LPW
[marto]: last night, well this morning was a 5am finish, up from 4 am the previous day. Oddly I feel better today than I did yesterday
[Corion]: marto: I think the first thing sleep deprivation does is kill your sense of how tired you are :)
