Niecza is a compiler
targetting the Common Language Runtime (.NET and Mono). Its goal
is to explore the static aspects of Perl 6 and the possibilities
for compile-time optimization.
is Larry Wall's reference implementation of the Perl 6 grammar,
parser generator, and some of the semantic verifier. STD is an
abbreviation of "Standard", as in "Perl6.0.0-STD". It is written in
Perl 6, transliterated into Perl 5 by viv.
It is also used by
various phases of several other compilers (mildew, perlito, elf).
viv ("vi" to "v", 6 to 5)
is a compiler that uses STD as its front-end. STD itself uses viv to
build. It is actively developed along with STD.
Perlito, also known as MiniPerl6,
is a subset of Perl 6, designed as a light bootstrapping language.
You can try it online. It is
actively developed here.
Pugs is written in Haskell.
