  • It strikes me that you need to know perl5 to get into perl6 at the moment

    What makes you say that? Anyone with knowledge of Smalltalk or Ruby or Lisp or the like (basically anything that has lists and closures) should be immediately familiar. In fact, they’ll have an easier time getting into the Perl 6 version, where you can specify a parameter, than the Perl 5 version, where you have to monkey with this bizarre $_ thing.

    • I should probably have been more carefull explaining the context of the remark - I was refering to what I perceived as the current state of documentation and articles about perl 6, rather than arrow operator or perl 6 in general.
