Re: What is Perl6?
in thread What is Perl6?
To be fair, when confronted with a machine/OS, to ask "does it run (P|p)erl" is not an unfair question. In the perl5 sense, "things work". Unless there's CPAN dependencies, etc, which are solved in other ways.
I love languages. But will Perl6 "just work" on standard distros? Who knows. I hope so.
Historically, Perl has "just worked", as opposed to *very* persnickety backwards-compatibility-impaired 'other interpreted languages'.
