in reply to Announce: Rakudo Star - a useful, usable, "early adopter" distribution of Perl 6
Firstly many thanks for this beautiful gift that you have given to us. Now I have a question. If one was to be writing a Perl 5 to Perl 6 converter, he will have to Parse a Perl 5 program right?
In order to migrate the existing code base to Perl 6, of course manual hard labor would be foolish and insane. But just the thought of writing a Perl 5 parser and then a Perl 6 generators is giving me shivers.
