in thread Think Perl 6 (new book)

I don't want to impede ongoing discussion on this topic, as it seems to be lively and for the most part respectful. But I would like to clarify one thing.

PerlMonks is a community. In this community, there is a general consensus that Perl 6 topics are acceptable. Obviously not everyone is going to agree with this, but at least as of today this is within the community's norms.

Perl 6 does not (yet) have its own community site like PerlMonks. And given that the Perl 6 community is made up almost entirely of members of the "true Perl" community, I'm happy to host their discussions here, if they like -- Raiph and his posts being an obvious example.

At the same time, I would encourage all who post on the Perl 6 topic to include the "[P6]" prefix on their title lines, as a service to all, in just the same way that "off topic" posts get the "[OT]" tag.

Thanks.

    I would encourage all who post on the Perl 6 topic to include the "P6" prefix on their title lines ...

    What to do, then, when a thread about Perl is hijacked and begins to discuss "Perl6" ?


    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

      Replies do not have to have the exact same title as their parent.

      So, yeah -- good point. If someone replies to a non-Perl-6-specific post with a Perl-6-specific one, he should add the "[P6]" to his reply's title.

      Of course, such conventions are only sporadically followed, so it behooves the reader to "be liberal in what you accept".

      What a question?

      If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying: Let us go and worship other languages (languages that neither you nor your fathers have known, languages of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other, or languages of other operating systems), do not yield to him or listen to him. Show him no pity Do not spare him or shield him. You must certainly put him to death Your hand must be the first in putting him to death, and then the hands of all the people.
