  • Considering this:

    my $arrayref_of_hashes = SELECT * FROM table_name;

    I think it gains me nothing. Nothing at all.

    Considering this:

    method morning (Str $name) {
        $self->say("Good morning ${name}!");

    If I can get that (amongst other things), I will cheerfully give up:

    • No/degraded syntax highlighting.
    • No/degraded PPI parsing.
    • No/degraded shiny Padre refactoring tools.

    Different people value different things. I'd hate to give up the items on that list, but I'd much prefer to work with a program

    • That example of MooseX::Declare like code is well intentioned but I (personally) think *horrific* for proving your point.

              function morning (Str $name) {
                      say "Good Morning $name"

      This won't piss off the people who think you're pushing OO at them.

      • Both can be made available, but don't forget that Perl doesn't really know the differences between functions and methods. That being said, I want a modern language and P5P is too conservative to provide that to me. Regrettably, they may be right.
