The idea of a common virtual machine is used for .NET, and, more popular here, parrot ;-).

The big difference is that .NET is optimized for statically typed languages, and parrot for "dynamic" languages.

The parrot developers are working hard on implementing all kinds of languages, and once they have released version 1.0 I'm sure they will gain much more interest. Especially if they manage to make it very fast. I believe they will ;-)

That will make sharing of libraries much easier, so you'll be able to code in "Perl 6 on Rails" if you want, or Python with Catalyst - fill in your favorite language and library.

The big problem, as always, is to convince enough people to focus on one platform (be it a VM or something else).

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.
