16:50 chm ghur: Nothing specific so far---after all Perl6 isn't out yet.
16:51 chm ghur: However, the concept for the next generation PDL computation core is a symmetric implementation at both the perl and C/Core layers.
16:51 chm Presumably, that should be possible to hook up to Perl6 using its new support for C library interfaces.
16:51 chm Don't really know much about Perl6 so I cannot say for sure...
17:06 osfameron chm: the perl6 beta is out...
17:07 osfameron e.g. https://github.com/rakudo/rakudo/blob/nom/docs/announce/2015.10.md
17:13 chm osfameron: If beta is out then the official release is coming.
17:40 osfameron yes, hope so
17:57 chm ghur: I just found http://doc.perl6.org/language/nativecall which suggests my proposed approach might work
