in thread Perl 6 is going to get a lot faster in 2013
Yes, I'm looking forward to trying it out. I've never used it.
I agree that perl has always been somewhat incomplete, in the sense that it's always possible to make it better. But that's a silly way of interpreting completeness. I've given an example (which took me approximately 30 seconds to find using google) elsewhere in this thread of a core feature that doesn't yet exist. I understand that object introspection and macros are also still not implemented.
If I didn't already have a set of excellent tools available, then I might consider using perl 6 even in its current state - just like I did back with early perl 5.
