in thread Announce: Rakudo Star - a useful, usable, "early adopter" distribution of Perl 6

Could you please provide some more info on STD_P5? Is it's purpose to allow you to write a minimal Perl 5 parser in Perl 6? Is STD_P5 still being actively developed? What's the Perl 6 developers' opinion on its value?

If STD_P5 can be used to parse a fairly large subset of Perl 5, then could that "subset-of-Perl-5" code be run from inside my Perl 6 program?

    It is meant to be a (mostly complete, as far as that works) Perl 5 parser in Perl 6.

    Is STD_P5 still being actively developed?
    Not currently, blocking on TimToady being on vacation first, then YAPC::EU and finally needing most of his Perl 6 tuits for answering questions from the other developers.

    But it's not abandoned, in the sense that he plans to hack on it again, once he gets around to it.

    What's the Perl 6 developers' opinion on its value?

    I can't speak for the masses of the p6 developers, but I for one welcome our new p5 embracing overlords.

    Perl 6 - links to (nearly) everything that is Perl 6.

[Mj1234]: Hello Monks, I have installed Active perl 5.16 and 5.14 but I dont find Devel::GDB package when I try to install through ppm
[Discipulus]: i'v installed ubuntu 16.04lts and i'm quite disappointed: is deadly simmilar to new win osses where you cannot find even simple things...
[Corion]: Hi Discipulus ;)
[Corion]: Mj1234: Maybe Ubuntu didn't package Devel::GDB? In that case, consider using local::lib and install the module from CPAN
[Corion]: But a quick Google search turns up this page, which seems to suggest that it should be packaged
[Discipulus]: iirc active perl has repositories only for last 2 o 3 major release of perl Mj1234. I strongly suggest portable version of strawberry perl and use cpan client to install modules
[choroba]: Also, who needs GDB when there's hdb?
