Well, I think your point is actually quite a general one in a way - there is a lot of stuff that seems to be going in because people might find it useful, rather than addressing something specifically wrong at the moment (although the majority does appear to be addressing actual, practical problems). However, people like TheDamian and Larry seem to have a knack of leading us the right direction..

I think it's right to have a level of skepticism about the development of Perl6, though, to keep them honest. It would be quite easy, I imagine, to go completely into cloud cuckoo land. The parsers are a good example - they could be very very powerful, but if they're too slow to use, then they won't be useful. Speed, of course, will be a big issue I think in all areas, because I think that's where the Parrot people think they're going to get wins. It will be interesting to see if it lives up to the current expectations :)

[stevenlm87]: Needs help. I am taking an online class for perl and is using Padre. How can I get a list from the input in this code? print "What are your favorite hobbies? "; my $hobbies = <STDIN>; chomp $hobbies; print "Your favorite hobbies are '$hobbies'\n";
