Parrot and More
So yesterday as I lounged across the web I came upon Parrot – a VM for the yet to be released (and slow developing) Perl 6. What’s interesting is that they are interested in having other languages (for example Python, Tcl, PHP etc) use that as their own VM base. Sort of like .NET. You can create classes etc in one language and call them in another. I’m extremely interested to see if they can pull it off. If they do, that would be an extremely important win for the OSS community (IMO).
Oh – did you know that if you point an RSS aggregator at georgeal.homelinux.org you’ll get a listing of all the articles/journals I’ve written? It’s extremely cool. Try it out!
