  • The source code for the site is available. Commit access is easy to get. If you have a better design, nothing stands in the way of your improvements.

    • About ten years of lost progress stand in the way of improvements. Need I list the number of programming languages that came and went in that time?

      Thankfully I am not paying for any of the group developing perl 6, I would be pretty annoyed if that were the case.

      I can fix the webpage, sure. I cannot, however, fix the last 10 years of perl 6 debacle.

        So do you have anything useful to say, or are you just saying "GODDAMN THAT SUCKS WAH WAH WAH YOU ALL ARE DOODOOHEADS FOR WORKING ON IT," because really that's about all I'm seeing.

        • Let me spell it out for you: drop this insane perl 6 thing immediately. Give us good, stable threading in perl 5 instead of self-hosting grammars in perl 6. Et cetera. We are your user base. Or used to be... - ank
          • This is carried on over at http://perlbuzz.com/2009/08/perl-6-development-does-not-detract-from-perl-5.html [perlbuzz.com]. It should help explain some of the misunderstandings.

            • Carried on by you and your friends. Your analysis is not only incorrect (an infinite number of contributors? are you insane?) it also fails to look at what could have been done without perl 6 being there.

              The fact that chromatic uses a comment to pitch his testing book is especially pathetic.

              • I didn't say "infinite" I said "unbounded." You have a scarcity point of view, and I see the world as abundance.

                You're ignoring the three points of the post, and carrying on the idea that if only Perl 6 didn't exist, you would have what you want in Perl 5. There is simply no reason to believe that.

                What I see here is someone who's just very angry, and that anger is all you can bring to the table. Rather than understand and accept the help from numerous people (me, Patrick Michaud, etc) who have tr

                That is a complete fabrication.

                • I find it funny that you take a chance to talk about a "testing revolution" in that perlbuzz post. If that's not a pitch, I don't know what it is. But hey, you have to live somehow, right?

                    If you'd read the linked post, you'd realize that it's an example of how Perl 6 actively improved Perl 5.

                    If that's not a pitch, I don't know what it is.

                    Clearly.

                    There are two allusions of books in the linked post. One is about MJD's original title for Higher Order Perl. The other is about a book I was writing in 2000 that had nothing to do with software testing. As pitches generally mention the products o
