AMD has a Light-Weight Profiling proposal -- which "is a CPU mechanism that could have broad benefit to software including, but not limited to, runtime environments such as Sun Microsystems' Java Virtual Machine and Microsoft's .NET Framework."

Wondering if anyone associated with perl is active in guiding the specifications?

Update: Intel is likely to have a similar initiative. It would be nice if people stopped talking positively about Java and Net and started talking about parrot. So I sent the following email to

Subject: Is LWP backward or forward looking? Hello, The trend for programming languages to become more like human languages is accelerating as evidenced by Web 3.0's Semantic Web and Perl 6's interpretor Parrot. At the same time, Java and Net mentioned in LWP's overview are mature languages which are likely to soon be on their downswing, if not already. Questions: 1) What, if any, are LWP's forward looking plans for Web 3.0 and Parrot? 2) Is the purpose of LWP to prolong the life of legacy languages or to anticipate and enable improved approaches to programming?

In reply to Perl and AMD's proposed general HW support by sg

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
