in reply to Why aren't you using Perl 6 yet?

GHC and therefore Pugs and therefore Perl6 doesn't run on my machine yet. GHC runs in less places than perl5 which means perl6 runs in less places as well. :-(

Added: I'm using NetBSD 2.0.2 (the latest) on an SMP Sparc. "sparc-netbsd-thread-multi"

    Ah, yes, but can other compilers compile to run on bare metal?!

    $h=$ENV{HOME};my@q=split/\n\n/,`cat $h/.quotes`;$s="$h/." ."signature";$t=`cat $s`;print$t,"\n",$q[rand($#q)],"\n";

    Would you mind giving your machine specs so that people who are more closely monitoring GHC and Pugs portability can alert you as to when it is working?
