Hi McA,

Would you be willing to discuss these issues on the freenode IRC channel #perl6? Such issues are a hot topic right now. If you're willing to read a bit first, check out one or more of the recently updated Computational Units specification (which I think is mostly already implemented), Distributions, Recommendations, Delivery and Installation specification (design and implementation in progress, the thing I'm most encouraging you or others to discuss right now on #perl6) and Perl 6 most wanted (what should a batteries included P6 distro include?).

I would love to see feedback, good or bad, on #perl6. Hope to see you there. :)

    2001 called, Ralph. It has your relevance.

    If you manage to get it back, please don't spend the next decade killing Perl again. Some of us liked it before your weird cultie experiment wrecked things.

      Hi,

      this sounds like you being a little bit upset about things in the past. I never dived into Perl 6 and the long history of that project including the highs and lows. Probably intersting stuff. :-)

      McA

        Every year perl-6 has more Perl programmers by %-age of the total, but unfortunately not because perl-6 has more programmers.

        Because people aren't using Perl anymore, thanks to perl-6 being useless for so long.

      You see ... if it was labeled experiment from the very beginning it could have had a big and positive impact on versions 7 and 8 of the Perl language. The language not-yet-fully-designed within the project would be just as incomplete, but some of the experience gained in the process could have affected both Perl modules and the language. A bit like it did, but probably more. More importantly it would not have hurt the name of Perl and the community and would not have caused so much bad blood.

      Enoch was right!
