Re: Hi - Regarding JVM - parrot compatibility (Assembly to Parrot)
Message ID:
   that part exists. a proof of concept parrot to jvm
translator stuff has already been done. As for full
implementation well parrot's still er... changing.
It's still being developed and so keeps changing
pretty fast. I wouldn't go to translation at this time
as it may be pretty hard to hit the forever changing
target that's parrot now. 
  I'm working on poring C to parrot. So that you can
compile C programs into parrot assembly and have them
work right off the bat. Once we get C across, it would

to Parrot like Perl5.6, Ruby all of which have been
built using standard C tools. (or so I hope ;-)).
Anyway if you are intrested in it send me a line. 
  Hey Hey.... wait a minute. There's this flashing big
light bulb. Big idea coming up! O.K. This may be
exceedingly stupid, but why not an assembly back to
Parrot compiler. Howzaat. We wouldn't actually have to
port C just the assembly stuff and voila' it just
