This post is about the immature Perl 6, not the rock solid Perl 5

Jonathan Worthington has just delivered a presentation at YAPC::EU discussing Rakudo performance work over the last 12 months. There's a video of the talk and slides.

The presentation includes a look at benchmarks comparing a recent Rakudo (on MoarVM) with the 2013.08 release of Rakudo (on Parrot) and Perl 5 v20. I'm curious what folk make of the numbers on page 76.

He also revealed a new profiling tool. Update: Here it is profiling some P6 code.

If any readers have tried Perl 6 but found it too slow, now might be a good time to try again; you should find that it's a lot faster than it was, and if it isn't fast enough for your use case it's now a lot easier to both see what's making it slow and to make it faster.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
