Session

Design and Implementation of the Perl 6 Compiler
Patrick Michaud, Consultant, pmichaud.com

Track: Perl
Date: Wednesday, August 3rd, 2005
Time: 5:20pm - 6:05pm
Location: Portland 256

The past year has seen marked progress towards a “development release” of Perl 6, including substantial work on the Perl 6 compiler. Much has been done on the Parrot Grammar Engine, the Perl 6 grammar, and implementing the core features of the Perl 6 language specification. As would be expected, some implementation details have caused refinements or changes in the Perl 6 language specification itself.

This talk presents an overview of the work being performed on the Perl 6 compiler, including detailed descriptions of the architecture and implementation of the Parrot Grammar Engine, the Perl 6 grammar, and the compiler itself. The talk will also present a "road map" to completion of the Perl 6 development release.
