in thread A $dayjob Perl 6 program that runs 40x faster on the JVM than on Parrot

I had already read several descriptions of M0, from the first time I heard about it in 2011, including the one you quoted. Aiui the MoarVM approach is to start with a version written in hand coded C (and stick with that through 6.0.0) and then rewrite MoarVM and its JIT in (a subset of) Perl 6. This still makes sense to me as the appropriate P6/Rakudo/NQP flavored version of M0 thinking.

But am definitely out of my depth, and the OP was about Rakudo/JVM, so I'm going to quit talking about M0 and MoarVM.

[stevieb]: it is exceptionally difficult I'm finding to debug a dist that is x-platform, where on each platform you're wrapping a different binary. Trying to co-ordinate a successful test run where tests are extensive is a nightmare, especially when the dist...
[stevieb]: ...you're testing is a test system itself. 10+ documented issues fixed, another half dozen found while fixing the original ones. I'm getting there...
[stevieb]: Then throw in changes to Windows that throws everything you trusted right out the window.
[shmem]: that's why it is called "Windows"
[stevieb]: shmem thanks for the 'insight' :P
[shmem]: good thing that Sun already took "OpenWindows", otherwise I'd not stop to shudder imagining an "OpenWindows" from MS
