At the risk of wandering offtopic...

As in Util's entry was unsporting? Or my comment?

Neither. I meant to say that it seemed unsporting to give the victory to the P6 entry, since the language has such a clear edge in concise, expressive power.

If the implicit aspect you're speaking of is a general P6-isn't-Perl sentiment, well, I don't subscribe to that.

Nothing of the sort. I merely meant implicit in that all the Perl Golf I've seen - limited as that is - was P5. I've never really considered P6 for golf, which is why I characterized it as an exhibition entry - bit of a joke with a nod towards the under-development nature of P6, is all.

I've puttered with Perl6 on and off for a few years now, each time coming away with two impressions:

  1. The sense that it's not quite production ready, and
  2. I'm gonna have to seriously raise my game to get the most out of it when it is.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
