in thread $1, etc. are not just strings

No kidding!? I figured it would be a feature in Perl6, but I didn't know it was already out. We're on 5.8.5 at our site and when I asked for an upgrade the guy who's in charge of the sitewide perl installs said he'd prefer to wait for 5.9 to become stable. He says there is not much of a payoff to move to a higher 5.8.x release.

This was last month...5.9 (with named captcha) isn't stable by any chance, is it?

I like computer programming because it's like Legos for the mind.

    No. 5.9.x is a development series leading up to the stable 5.10. At this point I'd be shocked if 5.10 weren't out this year, and seeing at least a release candidate this quarter seems likely to me.
