in reply to Perl 5 Optimizing Compiler, Part 6: A Love Letter To Dave Mitchell, chromatic, and BrowserUK

Will, I think that what Dave (and I) are saying is more-or-less that “you’ve got this bee in your bonnet, and it’s not going to stop (and, neither are you ...) until it has run its course.”   You are listening to those who agree with you, even effusing in praise(!) of those people, while seeking to pull those who foresee difficulties ahead of you into a debate that can only lead (in your eyes) to conversion to your point-of-view.   Therefore ... enough talk.   Go do it, all of you, if you can.   One of two things will happen.   Maybe you will succeed!

But meanwhile, please don’t continue to pollute the Meditations section with this.   You have assembled your team of raving fans.   Go now, all of ye, and produce something ... if you can.   Neither love-letters nor speculation will actually produce a compiler.

Now, if you will please now cast your obligatory down-votes on this reply, as certain of you are wot to do with regard to virtually anything that I say, and get busy.   “Time’s a wastin’ ...”

    what Dave (and I) are saying

    Dave and you eh. Ah well, that's it. No point in continuing then.

    please donít continue to pollute the Meditations section with this.

    You dare to speak on behalf of all perlmonks.

    You who has polluted this place with endless reams of your recycled, homespun, out-of-the-ark, ribald tosh. As if.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    I am never going to tell anyone else on this forum or any other forum to “shut up.”   Public forums exist to facilitate public discourse, and since I value extremely the discourse that is held here at PerlMonks, I shall never “respond in kind.”

    Now, run along, all of you, and start boning up on the byte-codes of your choice.   There is indeed no better teacher than Experience, with the possible exception of Public Humiliation.   Get busy turning Perl into Java, if you can.   (Or will it be Python?)   Build an optimizing compiler for a typeless language without strong typing.   Being rude to other people in public places won’t get the job done.   Nothing else matters but technical results.   Damn the torpedoes.   Either you will be Mr. Wright, or Mr. Langley, and very soon enough, only the winds will decide.

      Now, run along, all of you,

      I say dear fellow, do shut up
