in thread The current state of Perl6

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.

      excuse me I believe that module should be in Acme:: namespace
        It's not even a module in the Perl 5 sense. Also what do you find comical about it?

        Sorry, I was confused, I thought you replied to a different node of mine. Please ignore me.

        Perl 6 - links to (nearly) everything that is Perl 6.
