Further, are there any plans to include the ability to automatically
take advantage of specialized hardware such as vector processing units
(altivec, GPU) etc.? My understanding is that such abilities are being
incorporated into GCC 4.0.
By the way, as someone else already mentioned, it seems the parrot
developers are being a little too modest about the capabilities of
their project :) I for one would love to have small tutorials doing a
quick walk-through of how to implement a mini-language (a descriptive
write-up rather than pointers to (not so insignificant) code in CVS).
I think parrot will allow many corporate coders (web development,
script writing!) to get back in touch with actual computer science.
