I authored the thing, but dont' have time and tuits to update it,
unfortunately, sorry.

I think pmichaud was planning to write a new tutorial. we should
consider whether it's worth the effort to update the old one. If so,
the best way would be to go through each episode, and see what
changed, and change that accordingly.

sorry again, but I'm up the walls for the next few months due to deadlines.

perl6 compiler
Hello, I had just began looking at the perl6 raduko compiler and have a question. Is perl6 actually compiled then ran similar to java or is the script ran and then compiled at run time? -Wendell On Mar 14, 2010, at 11:09 AM, dell wrote: > Is perl6 actually compiled then ran similar to java > or is the script ran and then compiled at run time? It supports either, but defaults to single-step compile-run (like Perl 5). I think that a transparent cache is envisioned for the future, so that a compiled version is silently saved during the first compil...

to compile or not to compile ?
Hi I've been dabbling with  .net but am now trying to bite the bullet and learn it moving from classic asp I am a bit confused as to wether it is 'standard' practise to 'build' your project into dll's and upload these to the server or wether to simply use script and upload as you would classic asp to the server. what is 'standard' practise is there an advantage or disadvantage to using script / compiling thanks What is "Standard" depends a bit upon the tool you are using. For VS.NET 2003, compiling into a dll placed in the bin folder is the default behavior.  Othe...

Internals of AJAX toolkit
We have been using our own (non fancy) ajax framework till now. Now that Microsoft itself published these controls I thought of checking them out. The first thing is the much talked about UpdatePanel. I noticed when some client interaction happens the Panel actually calls the Page_Load event every time including initialization of variables. It basically loads the entire code behind page (class) instead of just calling the method which should have been written to be self sufficient like a Web Method in web services. This is like let the server reload the page but the client will get o...

Compiling Perl6 code to bytecode
Hello, I recently got interested in Perl 6, installed Parrot 2.0.0 and Rakudo 2010-01. Running the code works fine: $ cat say "Hello, world!" $ parrot /usr/lib/parrot/2.0.0/languages/perl6/perl6.pbc Hello, world! However, compiling the code for later use makes problems: $ perl6 --target=pir > hello.pir $ parrot /usr/lib/parrot/2.0.0/languages/perl6/perl6.pbc hello.pir Confused at line 2, near "\"perl6\"\n\n." in Main (file <unknown>, line <unknown>) I tried to ask for help on #perl6 on freenode, and th...

compiled vs. not-compiled
are there any benefits of having the code behinds compiled? I am not sure about the performance improvement. but I find it extremely troublesome when modifying codes. 1. If i want to modify one line of code in a 100 page project, I have to re-compile the whole project. This just doesn't make any sense. 1.1 replacing the current .dll file will reset all the sessions 1.2 does NOT automatically check in the .dll files from sourcesafe 1.21 do i have to deploy the .dll files to production folder??? there's got to be an easier way. 1.22 che...

perl6-internals-unicode request
Dan, I've finally woken up and I now have 8 RFCs on Unicode handling[1] I'm about to throw at the librarian. While I'm perfectly happy to have them disgust (sic.) here, I think it might be sensible to start up a WG for discussing Unicode Things. I'm even fool enough to volunteer to chair it if you like. What do you want to do? Simon [1] Don't tell anyone about the 26 RFCs that aren't on Unicode handling... -- Old Japanese proverb: There are two kinds of fools -- those who never climb Mt.

Updates to perl6/pge compiler
For those who have not been following along closely in the Parrot repository, the languages/perl6/ directory contains the fledgling beginnings of an entirely Parrot-based compiler for Perl 6. It's able to parse and execute most expressions and some simple statements, and will likely expand rapidly in the coming days and weeks. The previous version was able to do simple lexicals, but I'm in the process of re-working that logic at the moment. For those who have been following along, I've just checked in some changes (r12488) that cause the compilation sequence to more...
