in thread How much Perl6 have we got? (take 2)

Hmmm ... I think the closest english word may be prognosticate. I've never really heard or used it for software estimation (I mostly hear it for sports wagering) but it sure fits.

So duff, would you be happy to call yourself a perl6 prognosticator?

    From the very same page you linked, I think that the word s that fit best are in the Thesaurus section, and namely:

    hazard, guess, venture, pretend - put forward, of a guess, in spite of possible refutation;

    I think that hazard is the word closest to what I meant to say

    Ciao!

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    Sure. "Perl 6 prognosticator" is fine by me :-)
