in thread sourcefilter with complete parser?

last time I talked to Reini in Kiev he wasn't too fond about porting to JS.

Was he specifically talking of the JS backend work for NQP or just the notion of (targeting) JS in general?

Anyhoo, I suggest you speak to Pawel Murias. He's playing in the same space as you (perlish langs, parsing, compiling, generating JS). You can leave a message for him on the IRC freenode channel #perl6 with something like "preflex: tell pmurias Perl 6 rules".

Do you know any Perl6 on Perl5 implementation? Or at least a P6-parser in P5?

Larry Wall's viv?

a consistent language specification?

There's specs aka "Perl 6 specification documents". These specs are the most up to date, complete, and self-consistent human language documents we have that are part of specifying Perl 6.

The executable "roast" test suite for testing any P6 implementation, and Rakudo's executable P6 Grammar and Actions, can also be considered effective specification.

Or s/Perl6/NQP/ for last three questions.

In the same way that a P6 is effectively specified by code such as its grammar/actions and test suite, so NQP is effectively specified by its code such as its test suite and Grammar and Actions.

    We didn't talk about NQP. :)

      You're welcome. :) If you have any questions about NQP in general (as against the JS backend), one of the best moves is to join the freenode IRC channel #perl6 and direct your questions to Jonathan Worthington, nick jnthn.
