in thread Perl 6 ... dead?

You raise a good point, Wassercrats. Although we're accustomed to protecting things of value, for instance, gold, diamonds, and Munch paintings, we must not forget that things deemed harmful to humanity, such as nuclear waste, minefields, and Michael Jackson, must also be guarded to prevent the curious, naive, or stupid from injuring themselves through accidental or intentional contact with them.

In other words, if compiled Perl 6 means that you nobody will ever have to set eyes upon your source code again, then I wish the Perl 6 developers godspeed in their task.

ps: B::Bytecode can compile your Perl source code today. What are you waiting for?

    I know you wanted to add more heat to your flame by appearing to be a regular monk, but I see you just registered to flame me, so it didn't work.

    This is one of the reasons inactive monks should be deleted after a certain period of time. They use up good handles.

      Sorry to burst your ego-bubble, but I didn't register to flame you. I registered earlier today to post a japh.

      The unbridled stupidity evinced by your latest downvote magnet simply compelled my response.

        I already explained myself.

        How many downvotes did the post I'm responding to get?
