I don't blame you for being a little frustrated at how long Perl 6 is taking to develop. However, it's not Duke Nukem style vaporware. The proof of this is on the Perl 6 mailing lists and the regular Apocalypses and Exegeses. There's considerable development being made and anyone can see the progress. There are already several languages running on Parrot, the beginnings of SDL binding, OO is beginning to emerge (it would have emerged sooner were it not for the incorporation of traits, but that's a Good Thing), etc. Admittedly, this has almost made Mozilla development look speedy, but once it hits the ground, it's going to find its feet pretty quickly.

Cheers,

    I'm not really frustrated -- I think my attitude is more fatalistic. Perl 6 will arrive when it arrives. It's not vaporware -- it's just like a transporter beam that needs a bit of adjustment .. but I'm not worried about it.

    I do know I'm going to have to turn my dial from practitioner over a few notches to student as Perl 6 firms up. I'm wondering if the gods have considered starting up a Perl 6 section on PM, or even if that has been discussed.

      Yes, it has, and there are probably others. The general consensus was that it would not be worthwhile to have a separate section for it. People with questions or discussions will just have to clarify which version, if there is confusion.
