Perl6 can be written in Haskell as there are already compilers for almost every OS out there.
Check out the current implementations.

Though I have to point out that Pugs currently depends on the cutting edge Glasgow Haskell Compiler (GHC) for some features but most of these will be incorporated into the new Haskell-Prime standard and therefore propagated to all implementations.

Anyways, one of the goals of Perl6 is to be self-hosting. Check out this Pugs overview.

[oiskuu]: ... getlogin refers to tty owner; if you close STDIN, then getlogin returns undef. I get undef in my shell (running under X)
[tye]: Then there is a more persistent big of data similar to getlogin(). I don't believe even daemonizing drops it. So you can tell services that were started at boot time from those started by a person.
[tye]: I'll have to look into that later. getlogin() suites my current needs.
