in reply to
Perl 5 -> 6 do's and don'ts?
Considering that the language specification hasn't been
finished, and they are still changing things from older
apocalypses, isn't it a bit too early for that? I don't
expect perl6 to be there any time soon, if ever.
Furthermore, we were always promised that perl6 would be
able to run perl5 code, so there isn't a pressing need
to translate perl5 code to perl6.
Having said that, I've some points for you:
- Don't use XS code.
- Don't use modules that use XS (like DBI and Tk).
