Hello all -
there is a (rather) new release of 5 available for download. This new release
includes the following two main changes:
+ It is now possible to apply a binary operator to a scalar and an array (prior
to this only the other way around worked), so you can now write
1 [1 2 3] + .
to get [2 3 4] as a result.
+ Using NYTProf, Thomas and I sped up the overall execution of the interpreter
by roughly a factor of three! Calculating all perfect numbers between 1 and
dup dup 1 - iota 1 + dup rot swap
% not select '+ reduce ==
500 iota 1 + dup p select .
runs in 1.2 seconds on my MACbook Air instead of way more than 5 seconds
before. The same speedup holds true for all other test programs we used.
+ The documentation directory now contains the slides for my YAPC::Europe 2010
talk that I gave yesterday.
Have fun with the improved interpreter - all the best - Bernd. :-)
