I am now convinced that targeting a high-level language like javascript isn't going to result in a speedup.

FWIW: I reached a similar conclusion.

Which is why I think the only game in town is (a) Low Level Virtual Machine.

I'm not (yet) convinced that it can work its magic on Perl5; but I think it would be (have been?) the best possible underpinning for Perl6.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
