    It's worth noting that in jnthn's talk for YAPC::EU 2013, he uses the "async" keyword which is now written as "start" instead....

    Thanks for the update Stevan! I was wondering just yesterday what the status was of your attempt to add a mop to the Perl 5 core. The only question I have is--what's the earliest version of Perl that could possibly...
  • Commented on Announcing: UAV::Pilot v0.1
    Very, very cool!...
  • Commented on My Catincan funded cpan(1) fastest mirror enhancement
    Neat! Oh, and congrats on being one of the first 25 funded, but it's kind of cheating to fund yourself :-)...
  • Commented on Project notes: Prius hacking.
    Add the ability to save the camera feed somewhere and you’ve got some interesting possibilities. Make the switch and recording accessible via bluetooth and you’ve got some more. :-) Why did you want the reverse camera to display whether you...

    Thanks for sharing! Your link to the lightning talks is slightly broken, it should be http://yapcasia.org/2011/talk/97...

    If I were considering porting a module to mop, what would be the best way of going about that?

  • Stevan Little commented on On prototyping in public ...

    Timm, you can use the prototype on CPAN for now - https://metacpan.org/release/STEVAN/mop-0.03-TRIAL - the guts will likely change, but the surface syntax and semantics should stay mostly the same.

  • smls commented on Try rakudobrew and play with concurrency
    They're finally working on making Perl 6 fast. In some examples, it's actually an order of magnitude faster than Perl 5

    To be fair, I think that's only the case for micro-benchmarks that compare Perl 6 built-in features with the equivalent features provided by bloated/unoptimized/neglected Perl 5 modules. For example, Perl 6's built-in Rat type vs Perl 5's Math::BigRat.

    In macro-benchmarks that use many different language features to achieve something resembling a real-world task, Rakudo Perl 6 still tends to be very s…

  • Nate Glenn commented on Try rakudobrew and play with concurrency

    I'm quite excited to use this! I wonder if it will be possible to patch rakudobrew to work on Windows.

  • Aristotle commented on Try rakudobrew and play with concurrency

    To be fair, I think that's only the case for micro-benchmarks that compare Perl 6 **built-in** features with the equivalent features provided by bloated/unoptimized/neglected Perl 5 **modules**. For example, Perl 6's built-in Rat type vs Perl 5's Math::BigRat.

    No, actually, that is no longer true. There are cases where Rakudo/MoarVM keeps up with Perl 5 at built-ins, or beats it handily. At built-ins. Check out the benchmarks and see for yourself. There is a little “[Code]” button ne…
