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?

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.
