Larry Wall: Apocalypse 1

For those of you not on perl6-announce, I thought this would be interesting (vital ?) to know.

Larry Wall, who has been reviewing the Perl6 RFCs for 5 months, has posted the first chapter of his design drafts (called Apocalypses). It should soon be posted either on dev.perl.org or will be in the list's archives as soon as it gets updated (probably daily). As usual, the document itself is highly entertaining.

update (thanks to davorg and OeufMayo) there are links to the Apolypse: on perl.com and in the perl6-announce archives.

    Was just about to come here and post the same myself - everyone here should read this, it is yet another example of Saint Larry's greatness and God-likeness (although he expressly refutes all claims of being omniscient). As always, be on the lookout for some great Wall-isms - this article is laced with 'em.

    Have fun
