Parrot Babysteps Perl 5 Babysteps - Conclusion

This page once contained many links to Perl 6 information as the design notes were being assembled for the newest revision of this language. Those links are painfully out of date now. I’ll streamline instead with a few core ideas:

  • There may be multiple implementations of Perl 6, but the accepted standard is Rakudo.
  • Rakudo runs on the virtual machine known as Parrot. Parrot runs more than just Perl 6, though. There are several languages being developed for this platform.
