There’s your problem:

... if some one asks you if they can simply go and use Perl 6 for all things they use Perl 5 today, Your answer will be a straight 'No.'

“Therefore, it is not ‘Perl-6.’”   Period, hard-stop, end-of-sentence.   I don’t know what it is (and at this point I frankly do not find reason to care), but the bottom line is that you are creating:   a different language.   Stack it alongside, say, Haskell or Lustre or Simple or Sartre or Brainf*ck or InterCal or Piet or Whitespace, and hope for the best.   But, please, don’t play out in real-life the old joke about the woman who was married to an IBM salesman for thirty years but was still a virgin ... “all he did was to sit on the edge of the bed and tell me how good it was going to be.”   :-)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
