in thread The future of Perl?

Two reponses:

  1. I think that your impressions and conclusions; along with those of your Pythonite friend are right on the money.
  2. Perl 5.20 is still Perl 5.something; and Perl 5.something is still Perl 5; and that's been around forever.

    Like the 2012 Audi TT RS+ revision of the 2006 TT Mk.2 was seen by many as a stop gap to the 2014 Mk.3; and sold in very limited numbers despite delivering extra power, performance and economy; Perl 5.anything will always be seen by the many as an interim stop gap. Currently to nowhere.
