in thread What's wrong with Perl 6?

Surely the concept(*), which is to implement a glue between human languages and computer language (=machine code), i.e. providing solid bridges between the two realms, incoporating linguistics. That's what perl is for me, all the sigil and operator renaming and bracket, dot and whitespace whirlpool is just like the readjustment of an artist's palette after the blue period.

Adapting the latest findings of CS to Perl (or vice versa) to the above outlined is a task which earns anyone undertaking it my deepest admiration (could anybody help me out to express that in proper english? darn.)

(*) to my understanding, which might be far from accurate

--shmem

_($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q·/)Oo.  G°\        /
                              /\_¯/(q    /
----------------------------  \__(m.====·.(_("always off the crowd"))."·
");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}
