Ticket #1918 (closed RFC: duplicate)
Remove share and share_ro VTABLEs
|Reported by:||Yuki`N||Owned by:|
In my fork of parrot on github, I've created an experimental branch to determine whether or not removing the share and share_ro VTABLEs have any effect on Parrot as a whole.
I've come up with the verdict that removing these virtually dead VTABLEs has no effect on the operation of Parrot itself, with all tests passing (make fulltest).
Further tests are recommended with Rakudo and other HLLs which build on master, but overall it seems like removal of these VTABLEs is a relatively simply dead code pruning.
