Overview of implementation status of different features in Perl 6 compilers
|Makefile||add a 'clean' target.|
Feature overview matrix for Perl 6 compilers This is an attempt to collect an overview of implemented features in contemporary Perl 6 compilers. It powers the web page http://perl6.org/compilers/features . The idea is to have a concise and easy-to-write source file which contains the data, and a script that converts this information into a format that is easy to read, like a colored HTML table or so. A first version of that script is process.pl, which needs perl 5.10 or newer and HTML::Template::Compiled from CPAN. It writes the xhtml output to standard output, or to the filename specified on the command line. A feature should appear in the table if any of the following applies: * it is very useful to the end user * it is a distinguished Perl 6 feature (e.g. grammars, junctions) * it is hard to implement * it showcases differences between compilers * its implementation drives spec development The "forgiveness > permission" principle applies, and the authors are very forgiving. Your contribution is very welcome.

It runs at least once per hour.
