Re: Perl 5 Optimizing Compiler, Part 2by flexvault (Monsignor)
|on Aug 18, 2012 at 10:00 UTC||Need Help??|
parrot was designed to have bytecode discipline originally (and be platform independent), but both of these goals were thrown away without discussion at v1.0. That's why I left the project in protest.
clarified for me why the 'compiler' topic is near impossible to solve.
This guarantees that each release of Perl requires a re-compile of all scripts or just keep all scripts as source-code. Until that explanation I just couldn't understand the real problem.
Since both 'perl5' and 'perl6' have dropped the concept, maybe it's time for 'perl7' :-)
