in thread The current state of Perl6

It will be very disappointing if Perl 6 releases without a standard library. At the least all the standard modules with Perl 5 have to be available with Perl 6.

    That's a very odd view.

    Why do think Perl 6 should ship with a vars module? Or with Encode, when buffers have .decode and strings .encode methods?

    IMHO there are also a whole lot of modules in the Perl 5 core that have no good reason for being there (like Text::Soundex)

    I also suspect that there will be quite a difference between "core" Perl 6 and Perl 6 distributions. I see no reason why "core" should contain something like CGI, but most distributions will probably ship something like that anyway.

      Well the point is that for any thing that could you could do with the Perl 5 standard library should either be available with Perl 6 language or the standard library. If some thing was there in Perl 5(Even as a module) and not in Perl 6 why should some one bother to shift to Perl 6?
        Because Perl 6 might be much better suited for actually solving your problems.

        Or maybe because you don't care about that "some thing" that can't be done in Perl 6, because you don't need it at all.

        I'm sure I won't stay with Perl 5 just because Lingua::Romana::Perligata exists as a module for Perl 5 but not for Perl 6.

[Corion]: holli: Ooof :)
[hippo]: Cut should beless than 20% after tax, though. :-)
[Corion]: hippo: Yeah, but at least two years ago, it still was close enough to 20% cut
[Corion]: But I have a very positive experience with a four day workweek and a three day weekend. I can't easily go back though to full money.
[Corion]: That is easy without having to pay for a house, a wife or children though. If I had any of these, or any two of these, the decision wouldn't be that easy.
[ambrus]: wait. I understand no wife and children, but how do you not have to pay for a house?
[hippo]: I had a low-paid job about 20 years ago and seriously considered going down to a 3-day week. Would have worked 60% of the time for about 80% of the cash.
[Corion]: ambrus: Well, I pay rent, but don't own a house with variable/ unforeseeable costs
