  • But underneath, these pretty coroutiney/virtual-threads still have to to be implemented in terms of the underlying OS's real threads, so parrot will have to start being really clever applying locks ...

  • OK, we've beaten the producer/consumer thread/coro model to death. Here's a different use of threads: how simple can we make this in P6: sub slow_func { my $percent_done = 0; my $tid = thread { ...

  • After reading Dan's recent blog entry, I realized how (semantically) ugly coroutines are, with all the different ways of calling them, and dealing with parameters, etc. There's a couple problems as ...

  • Apropos of nothing in particular, what was the reason that post-X chaining, e.g. return if (expr) for (@array); ... was _not_ going to work? I can't find/recall where the impetus for that decision ...

  • So, just to stir the pot, is anybody working on a simple introductory tutorial for P6 yet? I was thinking that writing one might actually get me up to speed, because I could post it in pieces here, ...

  • [Apologies if this is sent twice, perl.org was giving me grief.] Point Of Order... I don't think this is so much OO overhead as basic function call overhead in Perl 5. Method lookups and inheritence ...

  • As some of you may have noticed, I'm disconcerted by the use of delegation at the language level for calling methods on iterators (the kind used by C<for ), junctions, etc. This is basically because ...

  • Apologies if this has been discussed before, or is buried somewhere in A6 or E6. Say I have sub boink($a, ?$b, +$c) { ... } If I call it as boink(@x, d = 7), then does it result in $a = \@x $b = (d = ...

  • I have to concur. <<list of words just doesn't jump out at me clearly. qw<list of words is just as tightly Huffman encoded ata total of four characters for such a common and useful operator, but the ...
