in reply to Thoughts on Perl6 - Love it? Hate it?

There are two things that I'm looking forward to about the release of Perl 6.

  1. The language itself. Hyper operators are bloody cool. Scalar typing is going to be fun, too. Grouped file-test operators, being N times easier to use, will probably make my code N times safer. Ditto multiway comparisons. I could go on, but you all get my point.
  2. The small, subtle incompatibilities between Perl 5 and Perl 6. I actually welcome these. They'll give me a very good and difficult to ignore reason to go back through my existing code and refactor it, or even rewrite it from scratch. So my code will get better, because of the review, and I'll have a relatively painless way to get acclimatized to Perl 6 (since I've already done the thinking to solve the problem, I'll be free to focus on the language). I hope.
