in thread Perl 5 Optimizing Compiler, Part 4: LLVM Backend?
I appreciate the optree lesson! :)
I've used B::Bytecode, so I know that it doesn't always improve startup time (but sometimes it does).
Now I think I understand a bit more about the importance of moving the magic ("switching"?) from the ops to the SVs, as well as the difficulty of converting from optree to some intermediate form like an actual AST or bytecode or anything useful outside of Perlguts.
I'm sure this info will help in our development planning.
