If you'd like to join the Perl6-on-Perl5 effort, please see the PIL::Run TODO file. mugwump added readline support for crude_repl.pl, based on his Scriptalicious.pm module.$ cd pugs/perl5/PIL-Run
$ perl crude_repl.pl
p5ugs> say "Hello, Perl 5!"
Hello, Perl 5!
QtPlatypus interviewed me about the PIL/Macro plans, and the need of a Macro synopsis. He updated the notes/plan file with the raw log; masak cleaned it up a bit, but it can still use some more editing before merging to PA02.
On the Perl 5 MetaModel front, Stevan added support for
$?SELF, currently called as
SELF() because Perl 5 does not have twigils,.
fglock's work on
Span::Code continued apace, adding stringification and intersection support over heterogenous range types.
On the bot front, kolibrie prettified time format for
seenbot.p6; coke suggested that
svnbot.p6 should print a separate header for each commit, and iblech implemented it promptly. iblech also added branch information for the
leo-ctx5 branch -- that's right, the
#parrot IRC channel uses Pugs-based
svnbot6 to track parrot commits.
Oh, and I managed to find a tiny slice of time to release a new version of Template::Extract, based on brian d foy's excellent suggestion. Maybe I'll manage to find another slice for PAR tomorrow...
Anyway, that's it for today. See you!
