in thread Perl 5 Optimizing Compiler, Part 4: LLVM Backend?

MonkOfAnotherSect,

I am generally familiar with the Unladen Swallow saga, and what it revealed about LLVM being less-than-awesome for dynamic languages. Still, I think LLVM may be the best potential target for a Perl 5 optimizing compiler.

I am now leaning more toward LLVM than RPython simply because it will keep everything in Perl/C instead of introducing a non-Perl/C language into the mix. Still, I think RPython is awesome and I hope to learn from their relative success.

Thanks,
~ Will

[Your Mother]: I think Trump might be better specifically because no one respects him so he won't get his way the way the others did.
[Your Mother]: (I certainly did not vote for him and have been an outspoken critic of his for three decades, by the by.)
[erix]: I'd like Russia threatened a bit more, flattered a bit less
[Your Mother]: The last two regimes killed a million, displaced 10 million, torture prisons, and ruined countries… somehow it's magically bad _now_.
[erix]: what/who are the last two regimes?
[Your Mother]: Bush/Obama. 15 straight years of warfare, torture, etc, etc.
[Your Mother]: All caused by the political fallout of Carter/Reagan when the Afghan chickens came home to roost on 9/11.
[Your Mother]: US foreign policy is toxic and like a broken record.
