in thread Will Perl 6 Replace Perl 5?

Hmmm.

Each time the OP appears, (has to be asked), and the response is so low-key and dismissive, la petite mort goes a little deeper; spreads a little further; lasts a little longer.
I think I agree with you. However, this makes me glad because I don't think the responses are dismissive or low-key.

Also, I remember a time when it was oft asked if C++ would replace C and clearly both of those languages today enjoy vibrant lives and even a mild form of cultural symbiosis. I expect that 10 or 15 years from now it will be similar for Perl 5 and Perl 6.

    I don't think the responses are dismissive or low-key.

    In my defense, I think that the overall response has strengthened considerably since my first post.


    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

[Cosmic37]: if ( $line =~ /$mydt/ ) { print $line; }
[Cosmic37]: I try to match successive date times stored in variable $mydt
[Cosmic37]: I guess it is searching for the string "$mydt"
[Corion]: Indeed cool, erix ;)
[Cosmic37]: rather than the value of $mydt which is a date time strong such as 2016-01-01 12:30:56
[Corion]: Cosmic37: No, but maybe $mydt doesn't contain what you think it does, or it contains characters that are special in a regular expression? Try if( $line =~ /\Q$mydt\E/) { ... for a literal match
[Cosmic37]: I mean string grrr
[Corion]: Maybe add an else branch in which you print what the values of $line and $mydt are?
[Cosmic37]: ah thank you I will try
[Cosmic37]: you are right $mydt did not contain what I expected... :-D I will now think :-D
