in thread ** operator in perl

To quote S01:
Migration in the other direction is also important. In Perl 6 mode, one can drop back to Perl 5 mode with use v5 at the beginning of a lexical block. Such blocks may be nested

    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?

      I don't understand your Haskell fixation. There is one (currently not very actively developed) Perl 6 compiler that's written in Haskell. That's Pugs.

      There are other compilers, namely Rakudo (Perl 6 on Parrot) that have nothing to do with Haskell.

      That said pugs had a proof-of-concept implementation of sharing data structures between Perl 5 and Perl 6.

      (And actually there's another project named smop that is mostly a backend for Perl 6, and it also has a proof-of-concept p5-p6 bridge).

      So all the cpan will be migrated happily?

      We'll do our very best.

        Specifically his post about the naming of perl6 vs it's lineage.
