in reply to Tim O'Reilly on Perl

I guess the question that many new comers will be asking, why learn Perl 5.8 when I will most likely have to learn Perl 6 later
Specially since it seems that Perl 6 will be a different language!

    The semantics of Perl6 are a superset of the semantics of Perl5, and the syntax isn't that different.

    Or, do you want to ignore Perl for the two years it'll still take for Perl6 to be deployed?
