What's the perl5's future?by xiaoyafeng (Chaplain)
|on Oct 11, 2015 at 09:19 UTC||Need Help??|
xiaoyafeng has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Actually I'm shocked when I've read this blog written in 4 months ago.
I'm shocked not only because many codes I've written is used with AnyEvent but also because I'm afraid it's a sign which perl5 world is beginning mess.
We love perl because it's expressive, because it's cpan and more importantly, because it's consistent. you can install a same perl in many OS and retrieve the same. But let's think, because perl5 has not a offical spec, what if there are many incompatible perl in the world like cperl stableperl and Rperl? Do you really want to stick with perl?
I'm not a member of p5, maybe this question need that guy to answer: does the present policy on perl5 development make perl5 good or bad?
Or maybe it's time to emigrate to perl6? Any ideas? I hope monks could point me to a brighter future.
I am trying to improve my English skills, if you see a mistake please feel free to reply or /msg me a correction
