there are still things I recall from Icon and Smalltalk that have no good Perl representation yet. Maybe someday soon. {grin}
What do you miss?

    Nothing that isn't already in Perl6. {grin}

    From Icon: Generators. Co-routines. Structures-as-hash-keys.

    From Smalltalk: a true integrated development environment, like we had in 1980. {grin}

    Be sure to read my standard disclaimer if this is a reply.

      The true IDE thing, please ghod, give it to me now. I think I can get an awful lot of what's needed to support a Smalltalk browser in Perl 5, but the introspection involved is, frankly painful. One of my fondest hopes for Perl 6 is that the Perl level introspection capabilities will be at least as powerful as perl 5's but with nicer interfaces.

        I second that.

        What would make me really happy is if perl6 would give us enough introspection abilities to make a perl refactoring browser that wasn't an insane hack of special cases.
