10:12 Ven perl6 is so much like bash, both have gotos! http://bobcopeland.com/blog/2012/10/goto-in-bash/
10:12 * Ven actually wouldn't mind it if perl6 never got a "real" GOTO :)
10:41 Ven joined #6macros
10:54 masak I would settle for a goto that doesn't break any of our nice things.
10:59 Ven masak: but can we have such a thing?
10:59 Ven i.e. I really would *love* TCO. but I know some features are going to make this **hard**
11:01 Ven (I'm looking at you, callframe())
11:01 Ven I'm afraid, like in JS, any feature that's "too dynamic" will make some code go from "fast" to "very slow" (because the optimizer completly bailed out)
11:03 Ven (I'm thinking of an optimization technique in JS to have a function wrap "eval" so that the VM knows the lexical scope is safe)
11:53 masak not sure that's allowed under "use strict";
12:00 Ven might not be :)
12:00 Ven but (0; eval)() might allow that
12:01 Ven (yes, eval() and (0; eval)() act differently)
