I've just started playing with Perl 6 Rakudo. I say "Wow."
It is pretty comfortable.
In this process, I realized that my tenacity in solving small things slows me down in learning something larger like Perl. I would do better to slide past the things that don't work and see more parts that do work. You can learn by seeing something work; seeing stuff not work is not so educational for a beginner.
I'm a bit past hello world and would like start with modules. The online references I've read don't address
where to put modules,
if there's a PERL6LIBish thing,
what modules exist,
or how to interface with C or Perl 5. (I don't know if I'm prepared to speak PIR, but I'll consider it.)
In reply to (P6) Modules?
