in reply to What will the Perl 6 interpreter be written in?

The argument is still ongoing, with the camps split pretty much evenly between Java and Visual BASIC.NET. There are a few people wanting to use COBOL, but I don't think their advocacy is going to amount to very much.

    I still maintain that my suggestion of using MIX assembly and then building the hardware to run it on was dismissed without due consideration.
      Wait, I thought that the whole thing was going to be done in Verilog. What am I going to do with all of these FPGAs, and how am I going to get them out of the parrot's cage?
      Not so fast ! Fortunately, I have a MIX simulator + MIXAL assembler written in pure Perl 5, *just for this purpose*. Details here. (direct download link)
      You should see what they did to me after I proposed a Concurrent Intercal solution, bootstrapped from Ook. :-(
