Perl, I'm coming home...

I love you and I miss you. Have been making some dough with Java for the past few years but I am returning to you with my new endeavour.

My time with Java has been a means to an end and I can now say, with a great degree of certainty, that there is no other language I would rather code with for the rest of my life.

With the same degree of certainty I can also say what a piece of crap Java is.

Can't wait to type your wonderful syntax again, and can't wait to learn 6.

Cya soon! ait

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
