Corinna Object Framework project

Link visible for attendees

We’ll have live remote guests Curtis “Ovid” Poe and Paul “PEVANS/LeoNerd” Evans.

Ovid is the architect and Paul is the lead developer for adding a new
object-oriented system called Corinna† (formerly & confusingly “Cor” into Perl 5 Core. They’ve had an open community process to develop an RFC or proposal and prototype, but until recently, without commitment for the Perl 5 Porters (P5P) to actually implement it in Perl 5. Over the summer, P5P have approved the initial Stage 1 integration into Perl Core. While we’ve had 20+ years of new OO packages for Perl5 since 5.0, this is the first actual (as opposed to proposed) overhaul of the core OO system in Perl 5.

PEVANS’s compatible, non-Core, prototype is Object::Pad. Ovid’s recent writing on Corinna are on his blog.

The Corinna project has a wiki and the RFC that proposed adding Corinna to Perl 5 Core, and the P5P-accepted Stage 1 Minimal Viable Product RFC. His 2021 editorial explains the difference between Moose (*et al*), Stevan Little’s Moxie, and Corinna. Damian Conway posted an exultation last month for the P5P approval of the Stage 1 MVP RFC.
