in reply to Code that writes code

I've yet to write code that writes perl code, but about 70% of my programming involves parsing out our html code/ berkley dbs & writing (non perl) test scripts based on the content. Perl is really, really, really good at this- I'm basically just setting up a bunch of rules, then parsing the content & substituting the relevant pieces into my test programs (hooray for regexen & s///!).

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
