in thread Think Perl 6 (new book)

I reject the intent to enable a new language, in pre-production development, to freeload on the reputation of Perl

Hum, Is Perl6 in pre-production still?.

The brand here is Larry Wall plus minions army (all of them Perl masters if I'm not wrong), not Perl. Perl6 can afford, and should afford, to freeload on the reputation of its own creator. The opposite would be illogical. Would be like to say that "only Ford T are true Ford cars and the next models freeload in Ford T success". Well, not only freeload, also improve it with better security measures, more comfort, less noise, etc

    ... freeload on the reputation of its own creator ...

    Absolutely! This would have been great:

    Welcome to, home of Camelia. Camelia is a new language, with design led by Larry Wall, creator of P +erl.

    The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

      Thankfully not, for us, because then we'd want folks to prefix their titles with "[Camelia]", which is significantly more verbose; and thus people would be even less good about doing it.

      I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
      So you agree with yourself?

      Well it's a start.
