Yes (sort of). But are you really asking that question now?

If you want to know about Perl5-isms that will not be supported in Perl 6, I'll point you to this document I've been putting together. I'm currently looking for work, but that's boring, so I spent a day last week re-reading the Apocalypses and Exegeses. If like me, you're interested in Perl 6 and the new language features, you probably wonder what things you'll need to change when you get your hands on that first alpha release (apart from the obvious dot and underscore).

So far, there's not very much that has been removed from the language. And in Apocalypse 1, Larry says he wants to keep it that way. However, it's early days, almost a year later, we're on Apocalypse 4 and Larry (perhaps jokingly) mentioned that there'll be an Apocalypse 26. So that's why I'm compiling this reference now, it'll be much more work to leave it until Perl 6 ships.

Please let me know if I've got something wrong, or overlooked something. I am sure that I'll have missed things on the perl6* mailing lists - I've only had time for the digests. I plan on keeping this list updated with each Apocalypse and Exegesis.

Here's that URL again:

Update: Fixed the link - sorry, should have tested it. Thanks also to robsv for correcting my HEREDOC.
