in reply to Ovid's take on the renaming of "Perl6"

Perl 6 is going to easily oustrip Perl 5 in terms of performance.

Is it? Easily?

    Jonathan has shown some benchmarks of his optimization in his last yapc talks.

    You might wanna check out the videos.

    I can't tell much about the practicability of his work though.

    Side note

    I'm personally convinced that Perl 6 will only have a chance to survive if Perl 5 opcode can be somehow translated to it's VM primitives, hence bridging the gap.

    Those optimisations should than benefit P5 too.

      I remember having this argument in 2011. So I'm not convinced about the inevitability of performance improvements and I'm definitely not convinced about the ease of these improvements.

        I was just pointing you to the source.

        Neither trying to convince you nor claiming that I am.

        I hope this was already clear.

        Update

        And if your last status is from 2011 then you should certainly watch the 2019 videos and comment on them.

        Cheers Rolf
