The reason I'm not is the reason why perl had such a big effect on me, compared to C, which I made some efforts on about the same time as I was starting with perl. I was able to do something with perl.

I feel a meditation coming on. Something about top-down and bottom-up and how they meet in a muddle in the middle.

Anyway the problem space mutated learning perl. I am sure the same will bappen with perl6. In fact, I am building each of the releases of pugs and lurking on #perl6.

Probably I will start with something using Rules. I was trying Perl6:Rules with a parser, but it was segfaulting perl.

This is all bottom-up stuff. Essentially, my answer is pugs hasn't revealed a top-down problem like the White Rabbit that is exciting to chase.

The move from perl5 to perl6 isn't as exciting as that from sed to perl.

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 editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
