I venture to say that the journey to Perl 6 will be harder than the one Perl 5 has taken to its present stage.

Perl 5 evolved, taking many small steps along the way. It's a bit like a baby growing. You hardly notice it grow but it's growing all the time. Then one fine day it becomes an adult, with all its learned systems of human behaviour.

Perl 6 is like trying to clone an adult. When it's out, it's expected to do what Perl 5 can do, and much more. So it's harder, because it doesn't have the benefit of those evolutionary steps.

    Discipulus manual work: i just tell the same to my boss: every time the quick solution is to assign some manual data entry task to my group.. because we have not direct access to many databases here..
    [LanX]: point is: in high speed trade each bank has to remember what he has to get from the others... so dresdner got billed for losses but couldn't claim gains
    Discipulus is this the IT?
    [Corion]: Discipulus: Well, in many cases it doesn't make sense to build an interface and complicated program just to enter 20 rows into a database ;) But yes, automating data imports should pay off in the long run
    [LanX]: Choroba: this happened before I joined, was still in uni, but my boss was summoned to the CEO of the second biggest German bank at that time and could only say " I told them its not ready" ;)
    [LanX]: memories....I missed my connection while chatting
    [Discipulus]: in this case Corion we are speaking about software licensing: evry year or two we must rescan the whole ced to produce an excel report, while at every activation / disactivation we update a black box DB: i said that i a week i can produce the perl to..
    [Discipulus]: rend out the xls IF i have access to the DB
