in reply to What esteemed monks think about changes necessary/desirable in Perl 7 outside of OO staff

Hi likbez,

I personally don't care for any of the concerns you've raised, but I do commend you for your thoughts, efforts and energy.

The one thing I would like to see is that perl starts stringifying floating point values in a sane and intelligent way, as (eg) python3 does.
But I doubt that will ever happen, either.

OTOH, trying to work around perl's laughable efforts in this area has provided me with many challenging and enlightening exercises ... so maybe I should just be grateful to perl for being what it is.

Cheers,
Rob
