in reply to Perl 5.10.0 or Perl 5 Version 10?

I propose that Perl 5 be redesignated as Perl. That Perl 6 be renamed Pirl; and the imminent Perl 7 be called Porl. This will
  • give us both greater differentiation and clear continuity;
  • let us develop synchronyms;
  • allow us to more finely assess the cluelessness of those who misspell or mispronounce their P[eiouEIOU][rR][Ll];
  • and, hopefully, give us time to resolve the matter of y being a vowel or not.

Be well,

      I'm sure that would make the Yoplait people happy. Whether we, as a group, are ready to turn our backs on caffeine is questionable.

      Be well

[perldigious]: A question since I'm ignorant of what's normal for database management... Do admins change column names a lot in databases?
[perldigious]: On occasion my scripts break, because they will do something that seems laregly pointless to me... like in this case, changing a column name from "ABC Category" to "ABC Category Override".
[perldigious]: Being the ignorant one, my initial reaction to that is, "that's sort of a dick move, a lot of people like me expect column names like that to stay the same, why the hell would you change them like that for seemingly no good reason?"
[perldigious]: Or is my irritation/ frustration well founded?
