in reply to My first impression of Rakudo Star ...

What's the migration path for people using perl 5.8.x +? What happens to all our modules? Perl has always been about accomplishing work for me, is Rakudo ready for work and to take on a heavy load in my job or is this largely still early beta and intellectual in nature? Where is the documentation? What do I get from this language that I don't get from perl 5 that would make me want to migrate? These are all questions I would need to be answered in order to make the migration.

    Perl 5.12.2 will be out soon, and Perl 5.14 comes out next spring.

    That depends on the nature of your work.

    Where is the documentation?

    Perl 6 Synopses and the Using Perl 6 (book in progress) are good places to start.

    What do I get from this language that I don't get from perl 5 that would make me want to migrate?

    Better consistency, better defaults, and built-in language features that are (if even possible in Perl 5) syntax extensions.
