Writing code in a language which doesn't fully exist yet seems rather ill-advised, the same way that writing to a library that's not functional or basing a project on software or hardware that doesn't yet exist is ill-advised. Doesn't matter if it's perl 6, Duke Nukem Forever, or whatever. (The same advice, several years ago, would've been applicable to betting on Apache 2 or Mozilla or Boston's Big Dig)

This isn't to say that perl 6 won't exist. It may, it may not, and when it does you may or may not care. Betting a project on another project that is significantly incomplete and whose completion date has a significant amount of uncertainty is just unwise.

This isn't to say you shouldn't use some of perl 6's features, not at all. The perl 6 modules on CPAN all provide interesting and useful functionality, and if you think that perl 6 may be the way you want to go in the end then it'd be sensible to use them where you can, to make transition easier.

Title:
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.
