Pegex - Perl 6 Rules for Everyone
You can find more information on the speaker's site:
- Abstract: http://pegex.org
The best part of Perl 6 is "Perl 6 Rules"<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perl_6_rules>, a "PEG"<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parsing_expression_grammar> parsing language and a replacement for Perl 5 regular expressions. It is a simple and readable way to define new languages, including Perl 6 itself.
In this talk, Ingy will show you how to use Pegex in Perl, as simply as using a regex. He'll also demonstrate how he is using Pegex as the basis of his Acmeist projects like "YAML"<http://yaml.org/>, "TestML"<http://testml.org/>, "JSYNC"<http://jsync.org/> and "C'Dent"<http://cdent.org/>.
