in reply to Perl 6 was released years ago

Wednesday, July 25, 2012. California. TPC16: When asked about the release date of Perl 6, Larry Wall expected it to be "real soon" now. "I've now written 18 Apocalypses, and I've only a handful of them to go". Damian Conway said "it'll be released on Christmas". He also added that it was only a few years till his retirement for Monash University, which would enable him to spend full time on the development of Perl 6. Young John Rapier, perl6 pumking of the concatenation operator: "These are exciting times. Here I am, working with people who could remember the time people were happy with perl5 and nobody had heard of perl6. I was a toddler when this guy was throwing mugs at the wall, and now I'm in charge keeping track what the current name of the concatenation operator is. Printed out, perlconcathist.pod takes 23 pages."

Google has been asked to help out the Perl community in archiving and indexing 12 years of perl6-language. Larry Page and Sergey Brin announced: "this will be our biggest challenge sofar. But given a year or two, we will succeed".

In other Perl news: the recent release of perl 5.14 went smoothly, but very quietly. A hacker going by his nick name KoolDudz said: I'm not really interested in 5.14. I've had this great idea since 2005, but I'm waiting for perl6 to implement it. It's going to be so cool, I can't wait to write my first Perl program.
