    Note that the File -> New -> Perl 6 Script crash still happens even if you have Perl 6 support on, so far as I could tell. And boy, I never thought of naming my file .p6 -- I thought that went out of style years ago?
    • A long time ago, .p6 was used for a short time, and then everyone wised up and avoided it. The proper way to name Perl 6 files is in the same manner as Perl 5 files, meaning .pl, .pm, .t, .pod, etc, and whether they are Perl 5 or Perl 6 is determined by the *content* of the files. If the file begins with something like "use 6.0;" rather than "use 5.008" then it is Perl 6; the latter means it is Perl 5. Using .p6 extensions is a terrible idea and anyone who returns to it should abandon the idea.
