Distilling the knowledge of those who helped create it, Perl 6 and Parrot Essentials, Second Edition is an unparalleled preview of major changes in the widely anticipated Perl 6. Still in development, the Perl 6 project is a community-based effort to build a 21st-century programming language. This book is an introduction to the latest in-development technology of Perl 6, which includes an insiders look at Perl development by authors who are members of the Perl 6 core development team. This sneak peek of what's coming in Perl covers the development not only of Perl 6 syntax but also includes succinct but thorough coverage of groundbreaking new developments in Parrot, the language-independent virtual machine developed as part of Perl 6. Designed to be language-independent, Parrot can be used to interpret other dynamic languages such as Python, Tcl, Ruby and even Java. This book offers an explanation of the various stages of the project, with reference material for programmers who are interested in the planned changes or who want to contribute to the project. Perl 6 and Parrot Essentials, Second Edition will satisfy their curiosity and show how changes in the language will make Perl more powerful and easier to use. This new edition also uncovers the most revolutionary change in the language itself: Apocalypse 12 on objects. The Apocalypse design documents (in the sense of "revealing", not "end-of-the-world") explain significant changes in new Perl 6 features, numbered according to the chapters in OReillys landmark "Camel book," Programming Perl. Apocalypse 12 is the result of cutting-edge research in object-oriented languages and is guaranteed to grab the attention of any serious Perl programmer. Perl 6 and Parrot Essentials also includes expanded coverage of Apocalypse 5 (regular expressions) and Apocalypse 6 (subroutines). Perl 6 Essentials was the first book that offered a peek into the next major version of the Perl language; this new edition goes even further into the exciting code and new language features that are the future of Perl.
