You guys are relentless aren't you?

From the first Rakudo/JVM "hello world" to being able to run substantial programs such as the subject of this thread took a further 6 weeks. Again, iirc, diakopter estimates that getting Rakudo/MVM to the same place will take about the same time.

Of course, things might not go according to plan. But my point is to respond to chromatic's misleading FUD -- "if MoarVM ever runs any Perl 6 code".

    Does it pass any of the Perl-6 spec tests right now? No? Then stop whinging.
      Imagine a place where folk were led to believe a lie -- that Perl was floundering. Floundering so much there might be no updates in 2014. Then someone says "If the Perl community ever releases any updates in 2014". That would be FUD. It's got nothing to do with what spectests those 2014 updates are passing right now.

        It's a yes or no question. Can you answer it? Just one word, yes or no. Does Moar pass any Perl-6 spec tests /right now/? Yes or no. Surely even a cultie like you can give one straight answer.

    I made the clownshoes comment

    It is you who are relentless

    If I were a voter, I'd ++ your original post, and your first replies (re^2) , but everything after that I would have -- for being obscenely idiotic

    For thirteen years I've been reading how next week perl6 will be finished, or that feature will be finished, or .... its the oldest running joke about perl6

    So if something good happened and you report on it, that is great

    But when you start arguing technical points with rumor and out of context quotes, you're not making friends

    I love perl, I'm optimistic about perl6, but if you keep this nonsense up, it will be impossible to discuss perl6 in any way shape or form on perlmonks

    Bridle your enthusiasm, cause you're not doing perl any favors
