  • ...the biggest problem with perl6 is that no one even knows what the hell it is. The existing design documents, with their appropriately religious naming scheme, are as transparent as a mud-smeared concrete wall. Nothing intelligible ever comes from whoever is working on it; no news, no updates, and certainly nothing along the lines of "here's what you can actually *do* with this...". It all reads like marketing gwana-gwana for a compiler design class.

    Everyone I know has basically given up on perl6, don't even try to understand it anymore (taxonomy of mythical creatures, anyone?), and are just looking forward to perl5.10.
