in reply to So much like a natural language

That is a stated goal for perl5, and I agree that it succeeds wonderfully. The natural feel of the language is indeed hard to forget, once learned.

It contributes to my unease about perl6 that the model there appears to be a formal language with an unambiguous grammar, rather than a natural language.
