    Nice of you to drop by. /s

    Not upgrading old code is exactly what was suggested. If your code isn't moving to perl6, that's okay. It's internal to your environment so, honestly, it would be silly and shortsighted to upgrade without really major reasons to. Platform stability is a real thing, you know. Anyway, you could pick any arbitrary version to stick with, and never worry about it changing. That's how software works.

    "The Perl-6 idiots never understood this."

    *takes a couple swings of the cluebat*... Perl 6 was never, ever meant as an upgrade to Perl5 (hence, no shit 100% of Perl5 code wouldn't run within a Perl 6 interpreter), just like Perl5 was never, ever referred to as the Swiss Army Knife . You've such a significant record of providing false information and outright embarrassing misquotes, yet here you are calling others "idiots". Such humiliating irony.

    Didn't you learn when you were in kindergarten that when you point at someone, three of the fingers are pointing right back at yourself?
