( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I do not see how adding Perl6 questions to the mix will be any different.

It will be different.

Perl5 came out in 1994 so by the time PM came around (1999?) Perl4 was fairly obsolete. I have not noted many Perl4 questions. Hopefully Perl6 will be much more popular.

Perl5 is a superset of Perl4, at least I can't remember any Perl4 that failed or changed meaning under perl5. Perl6 changes the meaning of very small chunks of code. The confusion factor will be much greater.

I bring up the issue at this early date because I dislike the idea of splitting SOPW. Fancier solutions may require support in the site's code. I like the trend of halley's thoughts on this.

<frantic>Oh no! Now we have to deal Yet Another Perl Flavor! What ever will we do?</frantic>

This is just insulting and you are forgiven. In my post I stated that the problem has not arrived yet -- there is nothing frantic in my post. I suggested action -- there is no What ever will we do? tone. Like you I think PM is great. I am trying to keep it that way. I'm sorry that the quality of my thoughts are such that they inspire your ridicule.

Consider: Help, I've read the doc's but I can't figure out what's wrong:

blah(); yada(); $var{$field} |= $bool;
Do we really want a bunch of Is it Perl6 or Perl5? responses to nodes like that?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
