There are two things that I'm looking forward to about
the release of Perl 6.
- The language itself. Hyper operators are bloody cool.
Scalar typing is going to be fun, too. Grouped file-test
operators, being N times easier to use, will probably
make my code N times safer. Ditto multiway comparisons.
I could go on, but you all get my point.
- The small, subtle incompatibilities between Perl 5 and
Perl 6. I actually welcome these. They'll give me a
very good and difficult to ignore reason to go back
through my existing code and refactor it, or even rewrite
it from scratch. So my code will get better, because of
the review, and I'll have a relatively painless way to
get acclimatized to Perl 6 (since I've already done the
thinking to solve the problem, I'll be free to focus on
the language). I hope.
