in thread Perl is an ad-hoc irregular jumble of functionality... and that is A-OK

Then why don't you ask yourself the following question:

If Perl is more correct, why is Larry making Perl 6, and making it OO just like Python and Ruby?

Larry is probably the most hardcore Perl guy, much more hardcore than anyone here, but yet...

    He's not making it like Python and Ruby, instead he's going far beyond them.

      Okay so you didn't disagree that Perl is less correct.

      i am fine with your statement. I would like to see that Perl 6 is better than Python and Ruby, but timing is not on Perl 6's side.

      There is a big difference between "I wish perl 6 to be bad" and "unfortunately I think perl 6 only has a very slim chance". Like I said, I am waiting to see, but most of the people out there won't.

      As a matter of fact, I ask everyone not to wait. They should move on, and it is never wise to hang on one tree.

    Huh. And here was I, thinking Larry called himself mostly a C guy.

      It is true, so... he is mostly a c guy, that does not prove that he isn't a hardcore Perl guy. If he does not qualify as a hardcore Perl guy, then who qualifies?

      c is his input, and Perl is his output.
