in thread Inclusion of Raku on PerlMonks

Given that Perl is famous for using non-perl languages to solve some problems, be it with Inline::C, JavaScript::V8 or even Inline::Python, i don't see a problem with adding raku to the mix.

I'm guessing the same will happen with raku questions as is happening with most of the other questions not directly related to Perl. We'll solve to problem or point to somewhere more appropriate to solve that particular problem... while at the same time some monks are getting curious and start to come up with a pure-perl solution (or a way of packaging that foreign-language solution into a nice module for CPAN).

perl -e 'use MIME::Base64; print decode_base64("4pmsIE5ldmVyIGdvbm5hIGdpdmUgeW91IHVwCiAgTmV2ZXIgZ29ubmEgbGV0IHlvdSBkb3duLi4uIOKZqwo=");'

    I'm pretty open to other languages in a Perl context and always defended tolerance.

    But you are replying to a node I wrote before Liz made her statement.

    Hence my point to "wait and see" was spot on.

      Thanks for the update

      perl -e 'use MIME::Base64; print decode_base64("4pmsIE5ldmVyIGdvbm5hIGdpdmUgeW91IHVwCiAgTmV2ZXIgZ29ubmEgbGV0IHlvdSBkb3duLi4uIOKZqwo=");'

      OTOH, what liz thinks doesn't really carry much weight around here. (No disrespect intended.) On the one hand, it's been a long time since she contributed much here (other than participating in threads on the present topic); on the other hand, she has taken her marbles and gone home (as the saying goes); and on the third hand, no one person's opinion carries that much weight around here. In short, liz's statement should not be treated as a "mic drop" by the rest of us. Carry on.

      I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
        I was always very clear that I like seeing Perl6 code discussed here.

        My reply was intended at HaukeX' quote in the OP

        > Sites such as PerlMonks appear to be really Perl (aka Perl 5) focused, and could possible make that clear in their description, or change their description to specifically include Raku.

        well...

        Cheers Rolf
