cog,
What makes you think that? I am only asking because the rather recently updated Perl6 FAQ indicates a working compiler by the 3rd quarter of 2005. I believe pmichaud, the Perl6 Compiler Pumpking, is the one who made that statement. Additionally, the bootstrapping problem may end up getting solved by Pugs though that is up in the air. The rumor mill indicates that TimToady is making a fair amount of progress for the p5 to p6 translator.

I am not trying to be overly optimistic, I am just saying recent developments lead me to believe 2 years is not a minimum wait anymore and I was wondering what made you think it was.

Cheers - L~R
