in thread How much Perl6 have we got?

The thing is that I learn by doing. Most if not all of how I learned Perl 5 was trying out small snippets, seeing that my understanding was off, revising my understanding, rinse, lather, and repeat. I think that my frustration would grow and I'd end up giving it up anyways. I aplaud yours and everyone elses efforts. I'm sure that they help the Perl 6 folks immeasureably. It's not for me, however.


Feel the white light, the light within
Be your own disciple, fan the sparks of will
For all of us waiting, your kingdom will come

    And I just want to add that I think it's really important to continue to have a solid set of people sticking with Perl 5 for now. The people out front tend to be in it for the glory and the excitement, and that's wonderful, but the fact of the matter is that it takes all kinds of folks to make an army. Military campaigns are won or lost based mostly on how well the supply chains are guarded, and not so much on how many people are willing to charge up the hill and get cut to ribbons. Though we need some of those people too. And we also need to make allowances for the fact that the kind of people who are willing to be cut to pieces for the sake of their comrades may need to swagger around a bit before the big battle to work up their courage. :-)

    Er, sorry, been reading too many WWII retrospectives lately, I guess...
