Re^5: Reference in Perl 6
in thread Reference in Perl 6
But that doesn't give Perl 6 folks any rights to call Perl 5 Ugly or Complex or has tough edges and things like that. Or at least by their very own definition until they have proven Perl 6 is just not that after a couple of year use.
I find statements like this weird. It seems to presuppose that "Perl 5 people" and "Perl 6 people" are mutually exclusive. What gives "Perl 6 people" the right to call Perl 5 ugly, complex, etc. is that they've used Perl 5 for perhaps years already. "Perl 6 people" are "Perl 5 people" just dissatisfied with the status quo.
