Wow. Thanks for linking this, Ovid... I think everyone
should go and take a look. Damian does a great job, as
in reply to Exegesis 2 - Perl 6
While I was participating in the mailing list traffic
for Perl 6, I fought against a lot of things that folks
like Damian wanted to implement. (*cough* dot-syntax
*cough*) Unfortunately, it seems they've decided to go
ahead and do it anyhow... ah well. This article spells out
a lot of things that even Larry's Apocalypse missed, and
helped me understand how things are going to work.
I'm not sure I'm too happy about it, but I'm willing to
give them a chance. Not that my opinion matters anyhow,
but I like Perl and hope to go on using it, and that
probably means coming to terms with the new version.
My two shakes...
