Information about Perl 6 internals
Message ID:

I'm developing an interface to libfftw3 (Fastest Fourier Transform in the
The library provides a function to allocate SIMD-aligned memory (Single
Instruction Multiple Data), in order to maximize access speed to data.
Before I start to investigate a way to blandish a CArray into pointing to a
stretch of previously allocated memory, how does Perl 6 allocate memory?
Does it already use the SIMD alignment?

Since I'm here :-) will Perl 6 ever support a native type mirroring the
__float128 quadruple-precision type provided by gcc?

Thank you!
