in reply to Another day, another nit

I personally don't care how other people write it—there's something to be said for people writing it every way to help Google searches find something—but I always write it "Perl 6" because I think it looks better, and because in ten years I want the name of the language to be "Perl", not "Perl6". The "6" is officially just a version number, because the party line is that it's the same language no matter how much pretzelization we perform. :-)

    I believe Google searches would be easier for 'Perl6'.
      Google search tip: Stick a hyphen in your search term to indicate an optional space. Searching on perl-6 will find "perl 6" and "perl6".
