in reply to poll ideas quest 2011

Since it's come up lately a lot on the forums... here's a Poll for what would be a bunch of new names for Perl 6...
    Other Alternative names for Perl 6...
  • Perl++ - As C is to C++, so are the days of our lives.
  • Pirl - The next vowell after "e", same pronounciation...
  • Lerp - Kinda like Larping...
  • Perlex - Perl's Ex Lover...
  • Perlican - Pelican, hey it's an animal.
  • Perlium - Sounds like a newly discovered element on the periodic table.
  • Pern - Mascot could be a dragon, might get sued by Anne MacCaffrey...
  • Pert - Mascot could be a young girl
  • Perv - Mascot could be an overweight, adult, with a skin condition, living in his parent's basement.
  • Perj - Prounounced Purge, as in a purge of the old Perl but still kinda perly.
  • Perly - It's a Perly language...
  • Perk - Using this language has its perks...
  • Perm - (already mentioned) "m" is the next letter after "l"; mascot would be a frizzy hairdo.
  • Prel - not just shampoo... or Perl for the dyslexic...
  • Pretzel - because it just works...

[Eily]: there was a post some time ago about variable coming from regex taking more space than the same string defined directly IIRC
[Eily]: and if there's XS, make sure the scalar holds a string representation, that sounds like bad practice though (forcing that on the call side)
[choroba]: You should never pass $1 without double quotes to a sub
[choroba]: or "I should never", at least
[choroba]: that's not the sub's business
[Eily]: choroba but does $name = $1 solve the issue ?
[Eily]: if so, most subs start with my (VARIABLES) = @_ anyway
[moritz]: for short subs, I sometimes let them work on $_[0] directly
[Eily]: moritz but that should be fine unless you modify them
