in thread Perl 6 feature that scares me the most:

I want it! I want it now!

Perl6 is a lot closer to Perl5 than most people think. Since most discussions on the language revolve around the features that are different, rather than talking about what doesn't change.

I'm looking forward to it. It adds the things I miss from other languages, and keeps the things I like about Perl.

[james28909]: i am getting the current time on my machine with scalar localtime;
[james28909]: i am scraping a website and retrieving a date stamp of an article.
[james28909]: well time/data stamp of the article
[stevieb]: james28909: what's the problem/question?
[james28909]: it is not an absolute date like "27" or "31". sometimes it is like wednesday or friday
[james28909]: and i need to format those special instances into an absolute date instead of "yesterday"
[stevieb]: ask a question on SoPW, and include at least a half-dozen examples of the input, and at least one example of expected output
[davido]: Exactly: SoPW. This isn't going to be solved easily in the CB.
[james28909]: in need "yesterday" and so on, to be absolute like "1" or "31"
[stevieb]: ...and throw some of your existing code into the equation as well, just so readers know you've given a try at it ;)
