    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.
