Perl 6 article, anyone?

[ #27310 ]

  • Lots of little programs
  • References to all the other places to look

I also tend to have these ideas too close to the deadline for articles :(

Although I've been avidly reading the Perl6::Bible modules for quite a while I only just downloaded pugs and started playing with it for a few weeks. In a way that is good, since
