Subject: Perl6/Parrot presentation in Austin
To: mlehmann at marklehmann.com
I'll be giving a public presentation about Parrot and
Perl 6 at Freescale Semiconductor this Friday, and I was
hoping you could pass along the talk announcement to
members of Austin.pm, in case anyone is interested.
Also, if Austin.pm is interested in having me come speak
at one of your meetings, I'll be happy to do it!

Language Designers and Implementers,
Over the past few years the Perl community has been designing and
developing Parrot, a virtual machine interpreter for dynamic languages.
While this virtual machine is obviously intended to support compilation
in Perl, a fundamental design goal of Parrot is also to provide language
interoperability at the bytecode level with many scripting languages,
provides a "native calling interface" that allows these dynamic
languages to access libraries written in languages such as C or C++.
This talk reviews the Parrot virtual machine environment and describes
the goals and status of the Perl 6 and Parrot efforts.
The talk includes an introduction to the compiler tools that have been
created to simplify parsing, analysis, and bytecode generation for
language translators (including Perl 6). The talk also provides a brief
introduction to Parrot's native calling interface, demonstrations of
currently available capabilities, and a look at how Parrot and Perl 6
are aiming to achieve language interoperability within a single runtime
About the presenter
