in reply to Perl 6: Will we use it?

I voted Lalalalalala, I can't hear you..., mainly because I'm not looking forward to Perl 6. Not to say I'm not going to use it, but I still have enough going on with Perl 5 that I won't be using it anytime soon. Most likely, I'll get a Camel that explains the new features and slowly, like a year or two later, move to Perl 6.

Updated: changed book to Camel after reading Mr. Muskrat's post

    I'm in a similar boat. My Perl looks like C, and I rarely use the higher level capabilities of Perl. So I really haven't run into anything that needs improvement in Perl. Maybe as I progress in my Perl skills I'll find out what everyone's talking about with threading and OO and all that fun stuff.
