in thread Perl6 and Extreme Programming

It will be much easier to write a refactoring engine in Perl 6 -- and here's why...

You'll be able to grab the parse-tree from the compiler before it's converted to op-codes. Or after it's been converted, but before it's been reduced, if you prefer. Once you have a structured representation of the code, refactoring is "merely" the application of standard mathematical tree/graph factoring and optimization techniques.

    Or even after it's been reduced, if you really want. :)

    Courtesy of the Ruby folk, I've been getting some exposure to some of the niftier bits of Smalltalk, including the browser setups they have. I really, really want some of that for Parrot and hence perl 6.

[james28909]: I have a problem I am trying to solve. I am packaging scripts using pdk and would like the verify the executable name each time it is executed
[Corion]: Hi James!
[james28909]: I looked through the docs, and see that PerlApp::exe() is suppose to return this information but whenever i try to use this, i get the error "Undefined subroutine &PerlApp::exe called"
[james28909]: i just want to verify the integrity of the executables name each time it is run.
[Corion]: Weird. this documentation says what you say.
[Corion]: I assume you are experiencing this with your packaged program. Maybe also include in the packaging list?
[james28909]: has anyone else run into this problem? i have tried searching but have not returned many results
