NAME

Perl6::Pugs - Perl6 User's Golfing System

VERSION

This document describes version 6.0.6 of Pugs, released February 18, 2005.

SYNOPSIS

    % pugs -e 'sub hi { "Hello, " ~ $_ } ; hi "World!\n"'
    Hello, World!

DESCRIPTION

Started at 2005-02-01, Pugs is an attempt at writing a Perl6 interpreter in Haskell. Currently it is in its very early stages.

Although Pugs does not yet directly relate to PGE or Parrot, the hope is that it can flesh out corner cases in the Synopses during implementation, as well as contributing more test cases to the main Perl6 project.

Release Plans

The major/minor version numbers of Pugs converges to 2*pi; each significant digit in the minor version represents a milestone. The third digit is incremented for each release.

The current milestones are:

6.0: Initial release.
6.2: Basic IO and control flow elements; mutable variables; assignment.
6.28: Classes and traits.
6.283: Rules and Grammars.
6.2831: Role composition and other runtime features.
6.28318: Macros.
6.283185: Rewrite in Perl6.
