in reply to Questions wanted for Pugs/Perl6

  • How hard do you think it would be to turn Pugs into a Perl6 compiler?
  • Do you think that with some Template Haskell trickery, you could use Pugs as a compiler with a minimal amount of extra work?
  • Would you like to see a Pugs compiler?
  • If there were a full-fledged Pugs compiler, would you like to see it support backends other than Parrot (i.e. C or LLVM or .Net)?
  • Would you be opposed to having Pugs become the perl6 compiler/interpreter?
  • Now that you've got some Perl6 experience under your belt, are there any features of Perl6 that you'd like to see added/changed/removed?
  • Will Pugs on Haskell make it easier for me to make a statically typed dialect of Perl6?
  • How long do you think it will be before someone writes a Haskell interpreter in Perl6 (which runs under Pugs ;-)
  • Are there any plans to add optimizations to Pugs to make interpreted programs run fast (or is the main goal just a working, if not speedy, implementation)?
  • Has the work so far been easier, or harder than you initially thought.
  • What do you think of Parsec (compared to other parser generators)?
  • Do you wish that people who complain about your good work would have enough sense to just keep their mouths shut?
