Perl 6 Compiler Feature Matrix

Permanent link

We now have a nice table that tells you which Perl 6 compiler implements what..

Such a thing was long overdue. When the topic came up in the past, people have suggested mostly automated solutions that compared test coverage of compiles to generate such a table. Nothing came out of it, it would have been a rather large endeavor. Now Eevee blogged about the lack of some easy overview that tells you what is implemented in Rakudo., and I thought it was time to tackle the problem.

Instead of some advanced automated system, we now have a simple text file, and a short perl script that converts it to a HTML page.

I'd like to thanks Will Coleda, Patrick Michaud and Stefan O'Rear for their contributions, and encourage everybody to keep the data up to date.
