in reply to Why aren't you using Perl 6 yet?
Now my question is, why aren't more people joining in the fun? I can imagine many reasons. Some of them are compelling reasons. Others may be not so good. But I'm trying to get a sense of what some actual reasons are. Think of this as a survey of the Monk population. Please respond early and often!
In order of importance:
- Lack of time :-)
- Lack of good pedagogical material. If I had more time it wouldn't be as important - but at the moment I need somebody to explain in short words for the feeble minded some of the bits of Perl 6 that I don't immediately grok.
- Lack of full support for the Perl 6 regexp/grammar and OO systems. These are the bits of Perl 6 that interest me most from the language perspective. If they were all up and running now I'd probably find the time to go poke and prod.
