... the language is actually called "Perl 6" (with a space).

Which makes searching a darn sight more difficult than it would be without the space.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    In Google, you can put your query term in quotation marks:

    http://www.google.com/search?q="Perl+6"

    The closing quote is actually optional.

      Here’s a better tip: use a hyphen, as in [perl-6]. Google interprets hyphens in terms as optional and interchangable with a blank, so this gives you the results of both [perl6] and ["perl 6"]. (But Google already treats whitespace between a word and a number as partially insigificant, so you get largely the same set of results whichever the query you used. The only noticable difference is ranking – things that show up low in the results for both other queries drop even lower in the results for [perl-6].)

        Oh yeah, I didn’t think of PM itself, d’uh; sorry. Try this. Pity that the regex search seems to have been removed entirely and there’s no way to use any other form of wildcards either… hrmf.
