Parrot In Your Database

| | TrackBacks (0)
Wouldn't it be awesome to write performance-critical stored procedures in a fast platform-independent language? That is the vision for PL/Parrot, a Postgres Language that will allow you to write stored procedures in PIR or NQP. Our current plan is to embed the Parrot VM inside each postgres backend. If you have a better idea, let us know!

Come hang out on #plparrot on irc.freenode.net or checkout the github repo if you want to help! You may also want to visit #parrot on irc.perl.org for Parrot-specific help. It is very much in a prototype stage right now, but we have lots of smart people interested in making this work, so I am confident that we will have something working very soon.

If you are a Postgres internals hacker or you want to learn more about Parrot Virtual Machine, we would greatly appreciate your help!
