in reply to Perl 6 section?

I think it would be a excellent idea to start a Perl 6 section. Of course that would deal with everything Perl 6 (SOPW, Meditations, Code, etc. all rolled together). There are a several good reasons to do so since it would make:

  • things interesting from a historical aspect.
  • avoiding the topic easier for those not interested.
  • things easier to sort out later (5 vs. 6 issues).
I can appreciate people wanting to be on the bleeding edge, but think about how many 5.0 shops are still around and not likely to change anytime soon. I can say with certainty that our University won't be movng to Perl 6 until it has been fully vetted/stable for at least a year.

Naturally I'll play with it at home as soon as it's available.

    Maybe it's possible to duplicate the Perl related sections we now have. That way, when Perl 6 is common (and it will be), the Perl 6 sections can be made default, and until then, they can just be in a mere nodelet.

    P.S. I hate vi and actually think ed is easier to use.
    /me changes $EDITOR

    2;0 juerd@ouranos:~$ perl -e'undef christmas' Segmentation fault 2;139 juerd@ouranos:~$

      It's a difficult situation. My first thought was to make a slight change that would lead to a smooth transition (less work for our gracious, and surely busy leader). Maybe with the next major upgrade to the Everything Engine a more complex solution could be implemented. But either way it warrants a careful, well thought out solution.

      We can always leave the default version (5/6) to a user setting.
