( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

It is an open source project. There are a finite amount of resources available to such a project. From the beginning they've made clear that speed was dependent on those resources. As Larry has pointed out, out of the system engineering cheap,good,fast, they didn't really have a choice about cheap, and they preferred to choose good over fast. I for one am very happy with that choice and very grateful to those who dedicated so much to bring Perl 6 to the place it is today.

I've been playing around with the pre-releases and reading about what is coming. I'm excited at the possibilities to come. The release coming on Christmas (THIS Christmas!!!) is simply locking down (for the most part) the language itself, but will still need a lot of work from all of us, the community, the build up the CPAN (and related) ecosystem to make this a truly viable system. I hope to be a part of that effort.

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.
