in thread ** operator in perl

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.

    One example, significant whitespace.

      Name three general purpose programming languages without significant whitespace.

        For some reason my reply didn't post. There are many languages where whitespace is quite liberal and not taken to new heights of infamy like python, including C.
