learning Perl 6 is a commitment to un-learning Perl because there's no realistic way to keep all the semantic differences straight if you want to go back and forth

By all means, learn a language like Rust. But do you seriously think you would have fewer problems going back and forth between Rust and Perl 5? In my experience, being proficient in any programming language is like being able to ride a bike without your hands on the handlebar. If you don't do that often enough, it becomes hard to get back to it. But after a little practice, it should just be "like riding a bike". Well, at least that's my 2c worth.

Also, Perl 6 has several checks on slipping Perl 5 isms into Perl 6 code, and will tell you what the Perl 6 way of doing it is.


In reply to Re^2: It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer? by liz

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