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

I have played around with what is referred to as Perl 6. None of the names suggest the nature of the changes to the language implemented in Perl 6, nor the rather drastic change in the 'feeling' of working with the new language. While it is certainly Perl, it is not Perl 5.xx.whatever. This is a different beast all together... .

I suggest, for no really good reason other than it is sort of alphabetically sequential...

Querl

And that is the last I will say on the subject unless asked.

...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...

A solution is nothing more than a clearly stated problem...
