in reply to Perl Review Issue 4 Out

I always enjoy reading these, but somehow I miss the significance of building a BASIC interpreter in Parrot Assembler...

(Of cource, I haven't researched the Parrot Assembler at all, is it, perhaps, written in Perl?)

    The assembler's mostly perl, with some XS code attached. We're trying for an article on Parrot for each issue of TPR, as it's what we're building Perl 6 on top of. Since we don't quite have enough Perl 6 to build, we're starting off a bit lower-level. The BASIC interpreter's pretty cool in and of itself, and as it's a language implemented on top of Parrot we thought it'd be of interest to people looking to implement other languages (like perl--hint, hint) on top of it as well.
