  • If your definition of "extensive" is "37 pages, when formatted for printing" :)
    • Any my goodness what the heck happened to subs! Talk about simplicity in any sense being thrown out the window.

        No, the simplicity was never there in the first place, if you count all the circumlocutions people had to go through to work around Perl's limitations. There was an impedance mismatch between the problem space and the solution space. Perl 6 attempts to factor out all that complexity from user code, and for the price of a more complex declaration, you get a much simpler subroutine. It's a net win.
