Still working on my slides (modulo the occasional perlmonks post), so updates in this space will be slower than usual.
Sadly, our IRC logger is currently down. Here is a short recap from #perl6 logs:
- Sage++ is using Parsec to parse the Perl 5 regex syntax and got most of them translated to Perl 6 regex in his P5toP6 translator,
- scw++ meanwhile worked on translating Perl 6 regex and embedded MiniPerl6 into Haskell's Parsec syntax. (Mmm circularity.)
- gaal++ worked on getting the new AST to compile (as Haskell and emit as Perl6/Moose classes), cutting down hundreds of type errors to a couple of them.
- TimToady++ hacked the spec to introduce repeat while loops, resolving an issue raised by a recent p6l thread. Then he hacked the test suite to reflect the new syntax so they fail. Then he hacked Pugs.Parser so it now supports the spec... and the tests pass again. Yay!
