in thread poll ideas quest 2013

In 200 years there will be many people claiming Perl is dead. And others will respond by pointing to the million modules on CPAN. The community will be waiting eagerly for Perl 17 (as for the last 20 years), and use the stable version 16.42.1 meanwhile. Except for some poor fellows who have to mantain legacy-code written in Perl 6.

So all will be fine ... at least till the next overflow of the Mayan calendar.

Happy New Year to all of you! Rata

    I'm thinking we will wear a helmet which picks up our thought patterns and converts them to Perl code

    I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth.

    Actually, there'll be another small remnant: contracters who took jobs maintaining code in a firm that still uses 5.8.

      ...and he has to help to circumvent the horrible year 2213 problem! ;-)
