    be announced before Perl 6 is released. Of course, Perl 7 will be able to parse any known language, including APL.

      If Perl can parse itself, it truly WILL be capable of parsing any language... including English.

    I thought Perl 6 already ran LOLCODE!
      And Perl 7 will compile OOPSCODE.

      Thatnks for the refernce to kurila. I really like some of the syntax changes, but some others seem to be changes for the sake of change. It's an interesting project, and I'll be keeping an eye on it for ideas about alternative ways to do things in my DSLs.

    I'm thinking Perl 7 will pretty much be RAIF-POOL.

[Corion]: Mhrrrr. Some project made changes to a report I ingest. I tell them "the format of the new rows is bad". They change it, without understanding/ knowing what other systems might act on this suffix. While it now works for me, I'm not really happy with ...
