in reply to Re^3: {Perl6} Macros and native compilation
in thread {Perl6} Macros and native compilation

chip,
I will paraphrase and summarize our recent IRC conversation for the benefit of others.

Limbic~Region: Parrot currently has a command line option for native executables which I believe already works on a couple of platforms. Are you saying that this functionality isn't integral or necessary for the project?
chip: Not exactly. It is unlikely a native executable will work without linking against a substantial part of Parrot. It is not something I see as being necessary but I certainly don't want to discourage anyone else from working on something they feel is important.

Please correct me if my paraphrasing is misrepresenting your position in any way. I see your point and concede that I have apparently been under the wrong impression for over a year now.

Cheers - L~R
