18:22 ToApolytoXaos greetings willthechill
18:22 ToApolytoXaos will RPerl be an extensible language?
18:23 ToApolytoXaos that is, is there a generic template structure we need to follow to add features based on a need, like an API or something?
18:24 willthechill ToApolytoXaos: howdy!  I am at school and about to give an astrophysics presentation, so I won't be very responsive until later tonight probably
18:25 willthechill the quick answer to your question is that Perl already contains every possible feature that anyone in their right mind (and many people who are NOT in their right mind) could ever conceivably want
18:25 willthechill and RPerl code can be mixed back in with regular Perl code
18:26 willthechill however, if you are asking if we can make RPerl actually COMPILE new things, then yes of course, that is why we will have many future versions of RPerl after v1.0 is (finally) released!  :)
18:26 willthechill if we're going to eventually re-implement all of the high-magic Perl 5 core using RPerl, then the end product will be that ALL the features of Perl 5 will be made to be (at least partially) compiled so they can run fast
18:26 ToApolytoXaos lovely
18:27 ToApolytoXaos I'm asking because I want to help as much as possible with C++'s backend use
18:27 ToApolytoXaos that's the template part I have asked
18:27 willthechill yes well we still have yet to start discussing the possible ways you can help
18:28 ToApolytoXaos brilliant
18:28 willthechill but I've got to get back to my presentation, we can catch up later!  :)
18:28 ToApolytoXaos see you later / tomorrow mate
18:32 willthechill okay thanks!  :)
