in thread Will role-based programming be part of the standard Perl 6 distribution?

I'm sorry you're offended, but as far as I understand your argument, it's that:

  • Perl programmers don't understand good OO programming.
  • Perl 6 won't improve this.
  • Perl 6 is adding roles for some reason.
  • Roles complicate inheritance.
  • Roles don't solve the real problem.
  • Perl is doomed because Perl users are willfully ignorant.

I don't really care to argue whether I understand OO, because that's pointless. I don't particularly agree that Perl is doomed. I'm not thrilled when you imply that my head is "up my arse". It's not really worth replying to those points, though.

I do care that you seem to be confusing roles with inheritance, because the point of roles is to escape the oft-broken fascination with inheritance that seems to plague the popular object systems these days. That's why I've been arguing for them in Perl 6.

Again, I'm sorry if you're offended by me saying "Your conclusion seems wrong because your supporting argument is wrong." But what do you expect when your arguments are both insulting and wrong? If you wander around punching people, some of them are going to react.
