  • Thanks for that post and link. AT&T Broadband dropped comp.lang.ruby from the list of available newsgroups recently for some reason, so my only link to that group is via deja, which I generally only use for searching archives.

    I'm really very curious to see how much I'll be attached to Ruby after Perl 6 comes out. :)

      My attitude is: if rapt is sweet, we'll steal it :-)

  • ... I was told Python fixed all of Perl's faults, but when I looked the module system was banannas, and that was where I most wanted changes. (Don't get me wrong: Perl's system is great as is. I just thought the "innovative" Pythoners would have learned from Perl's "mistakes" and have a really slick system.)

    Nat's right. If rapt/rpkg looks good, we steal it. Rewritten in Perl of course.

    We need an ultraflexible apt-like module install system running over CPAN. Modules need to be self-contained tarbal
