in thread NO PERL 6

now, wait just a tick. are you saying that parrot will allow the use of non-perl libraries and that it will allow true executables (not perl2exe or perlapp packages, but real exe's)? if so, then i just might have to retract my anti-parrot sentiments.

but i'm holding my ground on the symbols issue. :)

    Non-perl libraries yes. You can do it now if you're so inclined--the code to handle it dynamically (i.e. without having to build an extension to wrap the library) is in the repository now.

    You should also be able to build standalone executables, though whether there's any speed win is up in the air. (And you can certainly write code such that you can't have a standalone executable if you so choose...)
