( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Being free to break things without regard for users both helps and hinders Perl 6 and Rakudo in getting to the next level.

It helps in the sense it lets the designers and implementors move more freely and quickly. The Rakudo compiler is developed in this spirit.

Breaking things hinders Perl 6 and Rakudo to the degree there's a need for many more folk who successfully deploy Perl 6 in a production setting before considering calling Perl 6 "production ready" and folk who might do so are averse to signs of excessive instability. The Rakudo Star bundle is developed for these folk.

To encourage folk to try Perl 6 in production settings, and respond to complaints about rewrites, Patrick considers it necessary to at least have explicit public understanding about managing breakages across versions of Rakudo Star.

(Fwiw I would say the Parrot team made the mistake of prematurely deploying an onerous stability policy but the Perl 6 and Rakudo teams have not.)

    [Corion]: marioroy: Oh, that's always cool, having API-compatible modules. This makes testing and comparing things much easier
    [marioroy]: IPC in MCE::Shared can handle 400k (sends) per second. That's seems a lot for being a pure-Perl module. After making the release, will come back and post a solution for a node by a fellow wanting faster logging.
    [Corion]: While working on WWW::Mechanize:: Chrome, I had the suspicion that AnyEvent was doing something wrong, but I was able to swap it out for Mojolicious and the error persisted.
    [Corion]: Of course, the error was in my own code ;)
    [marioroy]: Corion, start and start_child in MCE::Hobo::Manager return a MCE::Hobo object, whereas P::FM returns the PID. I can have it return the PID though. I tried Hobo::Manager with several P::FM modules, just changed P::FM to MCE::Hobo::Manager and it works.
    [marioroy]: I also have a Hobo driver for Forklift allowing folks to use in multiple classes, no conflicts with one another. That's not possible for P::FM.
    [Discipulus]: congrats marioroy!
    [marioroy]: CORE::wait works well eventhough multiple instances or classes using Hobo::Manager.
    [Corion]: marioroy: I'm not sure what the normal use for the PID is in P:FM, but I guess that most programs just ignore or log it
    [Corion]: Oh, yes, programs could call wait $pid, but if your $pid is an object, then you could add a ->wait method to it and wait $pid would call that automatically "thanks" to indirect object notation
