pg has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
My company is in system design phase of a new project, and I see Perl as a candidator language. However some one brought this up, and said there might be a serious problem, as Perl 6 might be coming at any time, considering its possible huge difference from previous versions, we might waste lots of resources, and have to come back and redo the project.
Actually this also bothers me.
What is everyone’s opinion? How big would the change be? Did you hear any plan for a conversion tool?
