I believe I misunderstood my poll choice. I chose "lalala, etc." not because I want to ignore perl 6, but because I am not afraid of the features, changes, and gnashing of teeth that it will bring. Something new to learn, woop! Just think of the SoPW questions we'll get:
in reply to Perl 6: Will we use it?
Yeah, I want to change one line in a file using perl 6. I'll be getting the filename as a CGI parameter, along with the line number and replacement text. The script will be SUID root. What I really want to know is, should I write it in Perl 6, Perl 5 (on parrot), or use the Parrot assembler? If you have any suggestion toward any, can you post code? Oh, also don't put your name in any comments as I'll be cut and pasting this into my homework email to the prof.
Yeah, it'll be a blast... ;)
