  • "Perl 6 Essentials has now been scheduled by ORA." That must mean the language itself is not too far behind!

    Brought a good chuckle to my hump-day morning. Thanks.

  • Has anyone seen the content? Is it more than a compilation of the Apocalypse and Exegesis articles?
  • I got some useful information out of it, but there were a couple of nits:

    • what seemed to be lots of repetition in some of the hacks (after the 8th time reading that it's against Google's TOS to screen scrape it eventually sunk in, the other 27 times aren't necessary); granted the hacks are meant to be more self contained, just say it once at the beginning of the chapter
    • the multi-colour typesetting seemed off, at least in my copy (like things weren't registered right; more of a distraction)

    Other than a couple of other trivial typos, it's well worth the 18$US I found it on special for.
