in reply to Possible Perl 6 ad in local newspaper
I'm in no rush for Perl 6. I've been hearing about it for about ten years (maybe more). Right now, Perl (Perl 5) does whatever I need it to do. And it's still being actively developed and supported.
If Perl 5 development had stopped and every effort was being put onto Perl 6, I'd be more concerned. But there are lots of very bright people working on the old (and still good) as well as the new.
Perl 6 will arrive eventually, and perhaps development will slowly shift over to that. But I don't expect a tidal wave of change.
Go ahead and place the ad in your local paper if you want. I don't see any point in it.
