Have you noticed that the same issues keep coming up over and over:
Unicode representation, op despatch and signals, threading, integer
preservation, and so on and so on. Have you wondered how other
languages, like Python and Tcl, solve these? Do you know that *your*
experience with language implementation can be extremely valuable to
implementors of other languages?

The idea behind the language-dev mailing list is to be a forum for
discussing implementation issues of languages such as Perl, Python
and Tcl. The hope is that discussion of a particular issue can be
branched away temporarily to language-dev to see how other languages
deal with it, and then brought back "home" with the participants
hopefully more enlightened. 

The reason I wanted to to be a separate list rather than have people
scouting on each other's development lists is to reduce clutter and
avoid having stupid questions get in the way of people doing serious

language-dev is at
I'll be hawking it around the other languages soon.

Within a computer, natural language is unnatural. Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
