in thread Perl 6 ... dead?
Actually I am not quick at all to bury perl 6 -
I love to do my programming in perl but in the matter of
fact you have to find a job where perl knowledge is
required. If you check perl-jobs (in europe) you will
find a decline (old cgi stuff, some db most pretty old
systems too and text-processing) in the number of jobs. There are currently no new systems which will be designed and implemented in perl.
My hope is, that perl 6 will bring some fresh air into
software - but as longer it takes as harder it is to do that.
