00:23 stevan chip: awesome
00:23 stevan chip: at this point i am focusing on the test suite being the "spec", but eventually I will probably write something
00:23 stevan I decided to do it "in reverse" cause I just was losing interest just writing specs
00:23 stevan chip: also, have you seen gperl?
00:27 stevan chip: actually, if you target both bog std p5 and my variant then that would be an excellent bridge between the two

01:03 chip stevan: https://github.com/goccy/gperl ?
01:05 chip ow, that's ...ow.  I've been learning C++11 deeply and seeing throwback code that may as well be C hurts a little
01:07 chip I've been thinking there are two ways to go that make sense: A real parser generator that's strong enough for Perl - Boost Spirit or antlr or something - or a gradual reformation of perly.y et al so they parse from a more general input stream and generate a more informative AST
01:07 chip The world doesn't need Yet Another Grammar Technology; we'll be quite busy enough bridging to p5 and devising the XS compatibility layer
01:19 stevan the XS compat layer is important htough
01:19 stevan cause XS right now is just a macro layer on the p5 internals
01:19 stevan we need a real API
