in thread This year I plan to learn about:

I'd rather not learn about Perl 6 until I have to.

I think the plan is, Perl 6 is supposed to be so nice that folks'll want to learn it. (Though, I have to admit to not having had a good look at it myself yet.)

    Maybe, but the really nice thing about Perl was that, after years of C, Java, and shell programming, there wasn't much I had to do to learn it. Whenever I run into something that looks unnecessarily complicated, I've just done a little bit of research, figured out there was some nifty feature I hadn't known about, learned how to use it, and carried on with life. I haven't looked at Perl 6 either, but from what I understand a lot of the intuitiveness is going to go away, which is just going to make me cranky.

    My psychic powers indicate to me that my favorite Perl 6 feature will be compatibility mode.
