p6tut complete, November rising
As I finalized the proofreading for the 8th part, my german Perl 6 Turorial
is now complete, online and next month also printed
In november we completed the first 2 chunks (FAQ
) of content and i filed several bugs and issues (TPF P6 wiki is in parts beyond repair). Looks we can make i reallly usable wiki out of it. Masak and Viklund worked hard to fix the newlina at the end-bug, the UTF-bug, made a preview and cancel button work and some other stuff. but my filed wishlist is long, internal links with different label, flags with spaces in it as in Perl 6, table of content, means to make unformated and indended text and so on.
The Perl Tablets are also improved dayly, more than 60 new items in both languages in Appendix A
but that you hardly notice if you don't see history. But now p6tut is complete we translate more text chapters.

The Perl tablets
are a beast. I spend hours without much visible progress. Just details here and there, translating fore and back, understanding Perl 6, hacking around weak wiki syntax that don't get well along with a programming languages that uses all characters available.
Maybe the single achievement is to have alle the quoting ops right in appendix A and B.

overview over perl 6 documentation
I reformated and enriched a bit this overview
, please let me know if anything is missing there.

Hello, this my (sir_lichtkind) second account here to separate the perl 6 related things a bit. Ans since i maintain the module Perl6::Doc this name fits somehow. So may I could be please added to planet perl 6. So what did happen so newsworthy.
Firstly mberends++ and I translated all 5 perl tablet
Especially Appendix B
, a sort of perl 6 cheat sheet, becomes valuable since, these tables are scattered around many synopses and the synopses now contain the tests, which is good for implementers, and lang brains but not for newcomer. so lets get ready the Perl tablets soon, even without TPF funding
The second thing are my perl 6 tutorial i wrote in last 2 years for $foo
. It is now online (in german
), but i started also this to translate
, help always welcome.
All good things are three. I became november
user and started to add content to make some sort of newbefriendly intro into perl 6 worl and projects. Its very early but promising and i found some bugs and quirks, filed feate wishes, so november is now almost usable.
So now you may ask why try to do all at once. No there is much more i currently do in life but honestly all these projects benefit from each other and they simply need to be done.
