... the language is actually called "Perl 6" (with a space).

Which makes searching a darn sight more difficult than it would be without the space.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    In Google, you can put your query term in quotation marks:"Perl+6"

    The closing quote is actually optional.

      Here’s a better tip: use a hyphen, as in [perl-6]. Google interprets hyphens in terms as optional and interchangable with a blank, so this gives you the results of both [perl6] and ["perl 6"]. (But Google already treats whitespace between a word and a number as partially insigificant, so you get largely the same set of results whichever the query you used. The only noticable difference is ranking – things that show up low in the results for both other queries drop even lower in the results for [perl-6].)

        Oh yeah, I didn’t think of PM itself, d’uh; sorry. Try this. Pity that the regex search seems to have been removed entirely and there’s no way to use any other form of wildcards either… hrmf.

[Corion]: Heh. Perl heredocs are nasty - Filter::Simple doesn't know whether the line continued after the heredoc or not. The heredoc payload starts on the next line.
[Corion]: So currently, Filter::Simple mangles your code/line numbers if you use heredocs ;)
[Corion]: Of course, from a certain angle, it doesn't matter if your code line continues after <<FOO, but it would be nice if Filter::Simple / Text::Balanced didn't mangle that...
