in reply to Re^2: v5, a reimplementation of P5 (was Re^5: A "Perl-7" that I could actually USE right now)
in thread A "Perl-7" that I could actually USE right now
I thought and still think that v5 perfectly matches those words.
No XS means no DBI and no DateTime. No XS also means no POSIX, no Fcntl, no Data::Dumper, no Storable, no Encode, no List::Util, and no Socket, to name a few core modules.
I don't know what kind of software you write, but without those modules most of the stuff I've written won't even load, let alone run, including some one-liners.
I'm sure it's a fun experiment for the author, but I could only write toy programs with it. I think I am not so alone in this.
I will not be ruled by the fear that chromatic's P6 wounds might still not have healed...
I shouldn't have to keep telling #perl6 this, but I recommend you spend a lot less time caring about how you imagine I might feel and more time understanding the technical concerns of people you're trying to market to.
