It's a waste of time; it can't be done; you shouldn't even try; it's anti-Perl; anti-Larry; anti-FOSS; anti-us -- and tantamount to genocide to even try.

You forgot the Trilateral Commission, Project Majestic, Holocaust denial, and the Bavarian Illuminati. Bonus points for an Erich von Daniken reference connected to the Zapruder film by way of birthers and 9/11 was an inside job Ron Paul supporters, because clearly the only two possible choices are "do it the BuK way!" or "let Perl 5 die a slow, stagnant death".

Have you ever profiled to see where Perl spends most of its time?

Yes.

Have you ever implemented a dynamic language like Perl?

But there is no point in trying to discuss it; because the naysayers have already decided the outcome of all possible investigations and strategies.

You ask an expert for an opinion, you get an expert's opinion. If you want to build a project on the opinion of uneducated amateurs, I suppose there's a chance you'll succeed.

Conservatively 200% looks doable without changing Perl's syntax or semantics.

I will believe that when I see it.

    You ask an expert for an opinion,

    Nobody asked anyone's opinion in this thread. That didn't stop many self-proclaimed experts popping up to regurgitate their mostly second-hand expertise.

    If you want to build a project on the opinion of uneducated amateurs,

    Who are you calling uneducated? Who are you calling an amateur?

    I suppose there's a chance you'll succeed.

    Hedging your bets already.

    Have you ever implemented a dynamic language like Perl?

    Yes. I wrote my first basic interpreter in in 1972/73 -- were you born then? Or still in your diapers?. The first version ran like a dog; the second was a vast improvement.

    And circa. 1987, a friend and I wrote a Small C interpreter. And used it to build an extended DOS shell -- also an interpreter.

    I will believe that when I see it.

    But if we followed your proscriptions, nobody would try and you would never see it.

        Here is an idea, maybe you should answer the Chill instead of repeating yourself with BrowserUk

        You took Will's, as yet unanswered, semi-rhetorical challenge to your under-described, dismissive as a request?
