> Does this fit into your requirements

Absolutely not. My requirements are simple:

Then maybe (and that is a huge maybe) I may reevaluate if something new is worth writing under /usr/bin/perl again. Today the answer is a resounding "fuck no".

P.S. Golang the language (syntax-wise) is almost as shitty, and in places way shittier than Perl. Syntax is sugar: I have no problem copy-pasting code like an animal, provided my programs works, can push the resources I have to the max, and will continue doing so for decades.

P.P.S. You really should not care what I think: I have not been paid to write perl since 2018, and I am unlikely to do so in the future. Perl work on a resume is a liability these days, unless you are happy with booking-level pay. I am decidedly not your target demographic.

    I don't get it,

    • I showed two PP solutions ▓
    • XS is a voluntary intermediate step to speed up (I can't hack C anyway░)
    • and if a feature is later included into a newer core, then syntax and semantics would stay the same.
    In short: It runs on 20 year old Perl versions just slower.


    PS: How do I pay the XS tax? Invoice or credit card?

    ░) I'm fucking around, tho ...


    ▓) wait, autobox does indeed require XS (I think it's overloading the -> operator)
