in reply to Re: Representing all data as Lists
in thread Representing all data as Lists (Perl7?)
If the implementation is the only thing that changes, then the programmer may simply see a Perl6 look and feel. I'm exploring whether or not the implementation of Perl would become simpler if there was one datatype used to represent the things we see as strings, lists, and hashes. Granted, I'm also exploring what a Perl would look like which blurred the distinctions between scalars, lists, and hashes as well.
