in reply to Basic Perl5 to basic Perl6?

ghenry,
There are several concurrent projects in the works to help make the transition easier. merlyn has been approached to verify there is nothing preventing someone from translating the code in the Llama to Perl6, which apparently there is not. Another project is to make the Perl6 Cookbook, which Ovid has recently started working on.

And while Perl6 is still going to be the essence of Perl at its heart, it is a complete re-write. You should familarize yourself with the As, Es, and Ss - which can be found at http://dev.perl.org/perl6/.

Cheers - L~R

    Careful. That makes it sound like I gave permission, as if I had the authority to do so. I believe all I said was "I see no reason that there should be a problem, but you need to contact O'Reilly, because they own the book. I don't."

    Please don't misinterpret what I said, or spread false conclusions based on that.

      merlyn,
      Thanks for the clarification. It was never my intention to mislead or misrepresent. I will either better fact check next time or annotate the posting with a disclaimer that the information has not been verified.

      Cheers - L~R

    Curious that you should mention that since I was talking to O'Reilly about it last week, now that we've finished that latest update to Learning Perl, 4th Edition. I just need to find more time between all the other stuff I'm writing and publishing to actually get on it. :)

      The FAQ is an interesting read. I haven't had time to read the As, Es, and Ss yet.

      In the mean time, I will get on with learning Perl5 to the fullest.

      brian_d_foy, when is "Learning Perl, 4th Edition" coming out?

      Any links to a preview TOC etc.?

    I will do.

    I was thinking of getting one of the Perl6 books, but I'm sure the dev site will be the best source of information and here.
