02:32 jeffreykegler I've uploaded a framework for Marpa::R3 to CPAN.  These Marpa::R3 releases are strictly experimental.
02:33 jeffreykegler Volunteer testers should ignore them -- do NOT waste your time testing the Marpa::R3 releases.  I am not sure that I have broken compatibility yet, but I plan to.

15:24 jeffreykegler "Lua's extensibility is so remarkable that many people regard Lua not as a language, but as a kit for building domain-specific languages."
15:24 jeffreykegler From _Programming in Lua_, 3rd ed., p. xiv.
15:26 jeffreykegler That quote encapsulates the reason I'm so taken with Lua -- what I really was after was not so much a language, but a DSL toolkit for Marpa ...
15:26 jeffreykegler so I don't have to write my own.
15:32 jeffreykegler ... It does raise the question of whether Marpa is extending Lua, or vice versa. :-)
15:32 jeffreykegler One answer is that Marpa is bigger. :-)
16:28 Aria It's so true.
