Is perl-6 so fragile that one or two people complaining about it on a message board devoted to talk about Perl can really derail it?

I don't know whats sadder, the idea that that might be true or the that you apparently believe it.

But I guess perl-6 has a long history of attacking people. The heretics must be purged, even if it means producing something "useful and usable" takes longer.

    Perl6 is far stronger and more useful than you fear it is.

    I wasn't "protecting Perl6". I was exposing your unhelpfulness. Of your 13 writeups, none has any useful or helpful content. I call that sad. I pity you: living a life where you can ony see failure must be terrible.


    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
