    In 200 years there will be many people claiming Perl is dead. And others will respond by pointing to the million modules on CPAN. The community will be waiting eagerly for Perl 17 (as for the last 20 years), and use the stable version 16.42.1 meanwhile. Except for some poor fellows who have to mantain legacy-code written in Perl 6.

    So all will be fine ... at least till the next overflow of the Mayan calendar.

    Happy New Year to all of you! Rata
      Actually, there'll be another small remnant: contracters who took jobs maintaining code in a firm that still uses 5.8.

        ...and he has to help to circumvent the horrible year 2213 problem! ;-)


        Depending on how many more times I can have a stent placed inside a stent that poor SOB will probably be me.
      I'm thinking we will wear a helmet which picks up our thought patterns and converts them to Perl code

      Well, I think I did. Did'nt it say
      1. Post a new note in the poll ideas quest 2013 thread, containing your suggested poll.
      2. Send a message to the pollsters (/msg pollsters) pointing them at your new note in the poll ideas quest 2013 thread.
      3. Go on about your life as if nothing has happened. 

      So I satisfied number 1. As to your complaint Did you not bother to read How do I create a Poll? or fail to understand it?

      Are you referring to item #2? If so, the only people who would know I didn't /msg the pollsters, would be the pollsters themselves. So if you are a pollster, you already know my suggested idea, why should I /msg you now? :-) Is this the government or something? :-)

        So maybe you scanned it. At least we have confirmation that you are unaware of the part you missed. Here, I'll help you:
        1. ...
        2. Draft the complete wording of your poll. No one will do it for you. Polls have the following pieces:
          • Question/topic - this becomes the node title and so cannot include links or html
          • Prologue paragraph (optional)
          • One or more choices
        3. Post a new note in ...
        4. ...
        5. ...
        You didn't post a suggested poll. You posted a suggested poll title.
