Perl 5 and 6 have less in common than Haskell and 6. Actually, 6 is called perl because it is written by the same author(s). Proof? It doesn't run 5 code. So yes, you will have to learn this whole new language or find something new that suits you.
Perl 5 and 6 have less in common than Haskell and 6.
Let's see. Haskell is a pure, lazy, functional language with latent static typing. Perl 6 is an operator-oriented multiple-paradigm language with some laziness guarantees and optional manifest dynamic typing. Perl 5 is an operator-oriented multiple-paradigm language with syntactically-ignored manifest typing.
I really don't see the Haskell/Perl 6 similarities.
I guess it means more when timtoady says it than I do. Sigh. So you are compiling perl code on haskell compiler then, with ability to share data structures and code completely between haskellperl and perl 5? So all the cpan will be migrated happily?
