in reply to Do i need really to update perl 5 to perl 6?

No, it is not a "must". Perl6 is quite a different thing and not necessarily an "update" to Perl5 (in a slightly similar fashion to how C++ is not an "update" to C) and it will depend on your usage of Perl how you proceed. For an interesting and atypically low-flame discussion see Perl 6 and performance

I am very happy with Perl5 and currently have no plans to migrate to Perl6. YMMV.

Update: In 2019 Perl6 was finally renamed to Raku thus ending almost 2 decades of naming confusion.

    Thanks for replying hippo you've just cleared anything bothering on my mind! But yes maybe i'll cheers with you i'll stay to Perl 5. But do you think Larry Wall supported developing perl 6?
