in thread Why should any one use/learn Perl 6?

I don't know anything about it but what's wrong with the DICOM and HL7 modules on CPAN?

The nice thing about glue is that it can leverage everything. I love how Perl can inline other languages, and vice versa. If there is a will, and the skill, and some time; there is a way. All the other kids can import pcre and Perl can and should just appropriate wheels it can't or won't reinvent:

use Python::NumPy; use Python::HL7apy; use Python::Pydicom;
Seems kinda easy too

    I wrote, and lost, a long reply to this. TL;DR: the DICOM and HL7 code available in Perl is either nearly useless toy code (DICOM) or extremely limited in functionality and spec coverage (HL7). I am super glad to see folks putting effort into it though.

      Is there a Perl bounty program? Could be ad-hoc. Like: how much would it cost to bring Perl's DICOM and HL7 modules into compliance? Maybe it's worth $5k to someone to see that happen. You say it costs $10k because you need a new boat. Kickstart that and next thing you know its up to $20k. Stranger things happen every day...
