.. I will start officially my work on the grant. Friday I gave my very well recieved Perl 6 talk (German slides). I set some minds right about Perl 6. I explained whts the idea behing Perl and Perl 6, showed some syntactic sugar, tipped the idea of perl 6 as a meta language and said some words about the current state of implementations.

currently i cant reach an admin of perlfoundation.org :( it would have the advantage to use all the existing highter modules. there is even one for perl 6 that padre uses. but on other hand the changes i need would change the wiki markup syntax. i dont believe socialtext would allow that. so we maybe need a parser for wikimedia markup and extend it. i think it would touch a lot of subsystems such as the diff module, revamp search engine, add links to the history. i dont think you need that much code to implement it. but you have to understand much of the inner workings.

not necessarily. there is a open source version, but its also lot of effort to understand a large system. and if you work your on your own when we want to tweak the wiki syntax and the overall rendering. maybe its worth a try. i look at http://github.com/socialtext. but there is also the problem i cant find any admin.

After adding all meta ops and contextualizer with associated functions and adding the escape sequences too, I'm done so far. Not with Perl 6 but I have achieved for now what I wanted and will turn to Kephra for a while. The next release just needs a hour or two and i got some fresh ideas too. With 568 entries in the

It was a lot of work to synchronise the german Appendix A with the Tablets. And I did (completed, updated and refined) metaops and Regex metachar. But I can't express this progress in numbers. Because I cut also a lot. The err is

I got 2 nice answers to my last post. One from seano++ improving the Perl 5, making it a realistic challenge between Perl 5 and 6 (things like: $content = do { local $/; open my $FH, "poetry.txt"; };). The second came from damian++, improving the Perl 6 part, where I simply wasn't up to date with current Perl 6 syntax (for 15,*-2...1 -> $i {}). Immediately I took the "by" command out of Appendix A. I also added one thing to C - the prompt command, which eases talking with $*IN greatly (no ex

I updated Appendix C and gave it a better outfit. Please participate and add the features that wet your mouth, while thinking about Perl 6. The kind of features that make the difference between a good language and wanting to rush to your keyboard and type some Perl 6.

This magazine is for ambitious programmer and enthusiast. And it contains (guess what) a Perl 6 article of mine. Its about the current state of the project (third update), since the p6tut ended with part 8 nearly a year ago. Of course Rakudo * was the trigger, but because $foo has a release schedule with use stict activated, its now published anyway.

Its a magazine most of you here would not read, bacause it explaines most of the time basic perl stuff. But many of you, I suppose, care that there is a beginner friendly Perl publication, done by the passionate Gernot Havranek. So do I. Thatswhy i wrote 2 articles for this isssue. About Perl 5 references and one about Perl 6. Also Perl beginner have a right to have a broad overview what is perl 6 about and how it is going. I think I never

After the Routine Traits I'm almost done with Appendix A and B (me thinks so :)). But how can it be, that we have now less entries? Larry chopped a few filetest ops away. All file tests are now reliable(no T and B) bool ops (returning a Bool value - no z, M, A, C). Perl 6 is getting more and more regular.

All types(mutable immutable and undefined) are now included in the Appendix A. whats the big deal copying some lines from the synopses? well beside the proper linking it takes me some time to read and understand all that: "What is the difference between Bit and Bool?", and so on. I also try to understand in which schemes these names are chosen. The match method produces a Match-object. Things like that are easy, but
