So, people are using perl6 code at this time?


And, if so what are the results?

Some people like it, others don't.

am wondering are the people who upgrade perl 5 working on perl 6 as well?

Most developers either work on Perl 5 or Perl 6 - both take up tremendous amounts of time, and since the code bases don't overlap all that much, there's no good reason for developers to work on both.

It just seems it is taking an extremely long time 10 plus years to come out with a production usable version.

It is. Because Perl 6 has extremely high demands on compiler writers.

Second, it seems there has been every excuse in the world on the site as to reasons why this version or a delay occurs every month.

I've mostly seen reasons, not excuses.

Let me make this perfectly clear: There's no reason why any Perl 6 developer should excuse himself or herself for not having finished something you'd like to see - we're all volunteers. And nobody wants to see Perl 6 "done" more than those people actually working on it.

Maybe some other open source people should assist with finishing up a production version of perl6?

I'd really love to see that. But attracting contributors isn't as easy as saying "maybe somebody else should assist".

If you have any idea how that might be accomplished, I'm eager to hear.

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