Well, I guess I consider that a successful test of stage one for my future revision of Penguin (which I am tentatively calling Oyster ). Stage two has hit a snag, as I was unsuccessful in my attempt to install Crypt::OpenPGP. Might be a Solaris issue. I'll have to wait on word from Ben.
In other news, I read that some were actually considering changing the format specifier from '%' to something else to avoid confusion with hashes in Perl 6. For the love of God, don't do it!!! It's that sort of annoying poo that can drive people away from a language, or at least irritate them to no end.
