in reply to Perl 6 will primarily be:

Hopefully a faster, cleaner, more powerful, more flexible Perl. I am not sure if I am happy of having to (well, I guess I don't HAVE to but still will) learn so many new things. On the other side it will help me to become a better Perl coder. Ah well.

[Corion]: Heh. Perl heredocs are nasty - Filter::Simple doesn't know whether the line continued after the heredoc or not. The heredoc payload starts on the next line.
[Corion]: So currently, Filter::Simple mangles your code/line numbers if you use heredocs ;)
[Corion]: Of course, from a certain angle, it doesn't matter if your code line continues after <<FOO, but it would be nice if Filter::Simple / Text::Balanced didn't mangle that...
