I don't know if many Monks have noticed this complement to the recent Apocalypse 5: TheDamian wrote a summary of the new regexes, entitled Synopsis 5 (in pdf), linked from his diary.

I found this very convenient as an overview of the new syntax.

    Wait, did we get an Exegesis for Apocalypse 5 yet? I don't see it anywhere on Perl.com.

    Impatiently,
    -sam

      From TheDamian's diary:

      Whilst I'm travelling I will be putting together the next Exegesis, exploring the new worlds that Larry has opened up with Apocalypse 5. I expect to release it just before YAPC::NA.

      I look forward to it (I really didn't want to read all 20+ pages of Apocalypse 5 :).

      Not yet. Damian's time's been snagged by the tour he's started, and getting ready for YAPC--we should have an Exegesis within a few weeks.

      Not yet, samtregar. When I had the opportunity to hear thedamian at the D/FW PerlMongers' meeting last Wednesday evening (12 Jun 2002), he indicated that because of the length of Apocalypse 5 (23 pages), and the amount of content it covers, that it was his intention to do a kind of "executive summary" soon (ie, the Synopsis 5), to be followed by an Exegesis as time allowed.
