in thread Perl 6 and performance

:( they're two different languages. There is nothing wrong with ignoring it, but those of us who know what Perl 6 is and what it will become are helping to make it better because it is something we need and nothing else provides.

It makes me sad that you'd tell someone to ignore making contributions to science :(

    "Science"? On the one hand, thanks to the publish-or-perish research economy, lots of "science" is, like Perl 6, BS and hype. On the other, one of Perl 6's biggest failings is its utter ignorance of prior work, something "science" still respects.

      Henceforth I'll call you "_foo", since you don't seem to be worth of the "educated_" part.

        You sure bring the lulz...

        Was the buggy, slow Parrot VM "state of the art?" Was its pathetic JIT compiler (to which I contributed) even vaguely informed by IBM's Jikes RVM or Sun's Java VM? How about the (still buggy) garbage collector? Did the implementors consider Greg Wilson's surveys of garbage collection techniques?

        Henceforth I dub thee whatever thou callest thyself, for truly, reality hath no claim therein.
