    Ah, I see. You said:
    Actually, 6 is called perl because it is written by the same author(s). Proof? It doesn't run 5 code.
    Someone took exception to the latter part, and you defended the former part. No wonder I was confused. Sigh.
      The former part is discussed in the linked node as to why LW did not change the name. The latter part is defensible also. They have a "proof of concept." I'm more than willing to change my position and join the bandwagon when I can move my scripts over and turn off the p6 syntax (e.g. the new For loop), unless I need some feature.

[LanX]: # Pestis Africana Suum
[erix]: that's an old plan, I think. Isn't there already a danewal (or some such name)?
[marto]: Build with -Wall
[erix]: Danewerk
[LanX]: I seem to remember that the danewall was build by the Frankish empire against the Danes
[erix]: 500 AD thru viking age
[erix]: that would make sense but wikipedia thinks otherwise
[LanX]: oh me was wrong ...
[erix]: but it always works both ways of course
[LanX]: Funny some weeks ago, I met people from the Cimbrian peninsula who didn't know it's called the Cimbrian peninsula ...
