Indeed, that's a wonderful example. It hurts Perl6 and Perl5 both that extra hoop jumping is required to find information about either one exclusive of the other. That's probably the strongest argument I can can think of for not naming two different but related languages as if they are mere version differences.

I'm not one of the anti-6 folks. I like both of them. I just wish it the naming wasn't so confusing for the search engines. Using quotes helps in SEs that understand them, though. "Perl" is still unique enough that "Perl 6" gives decent results. Searching for "Perl 5" becomes problematic though if you're looking for stuff written before the " 5" was necessary for differentiation. It's still not as bad as searching for some of these others, but it could be better.

Title:
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
