Maybe. I'm imagining people complaining about elitism and opaque development practices and what not, but I can't honestly say I've heard that about Perl 6 any more than I've heard it about Perl 5.

Actually, nothing could be more far away from truth. As far as Perl 5 is concerned, whenever I had some idea or consideration about its syntax or semantics I wrote either here or in clpmisc, without much success in general. OTOH I'm confident that p5p wouldn't have been viable anyway because of my lack of technical skills. But for some time before I had to leave it due to severe lack of time, I was in p6l and there I could discuss on the same level as @Larry, without knowing how to write a single effective line of code, and with having no language design specific knowledge at all! And in all this I may even dare to think that at least an evanescent trace of some thought of mine eventually made its way into the language. I never felt insulted for the rebuttal of any idea of mine, but rather kindly explained why so...

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.
