in thread What is Perl6?

This systems-hound (unix-ish expectations) is busted, fair and square.

I've recently had to do a bunch of perl5 work in the Win32 world (via Strawberry as it happens), including full-blown GUI support.

I ran into more stuff that broke perl than I would have ever imagined. But mostly, this is because the environment was breaking POSIX. Live and learn.

I think the primary point of my original comment was that I'd like to minimize those kinds of surprises (multi-platform abstraction) as well as minimize language surprises (i.e. sorry, this is not your flavor of perl6).

The test suite evolving around the current specification gives me hope.

Cheers,
Matt

[robby_dobby]: Oh, shit -- I was replying to someone, but it wound up here. -_-
