in reply to Exegesis 2 - Perl 6

Wow. Thanks for linking this, Ovid... I think everyone should go and take a look. Damian does a great job, as usual.

While I was participating in the mailing list traffic for Perl 6, I fought against a lot of things that folks like Damian wanted to implement. (*cough* dot-syntax *cough*) Unfortunately, it seems they've decided to go ahead and do it anyhow... ah well. This article spells out a lot of things that even Larry's Apocalypse missed, and helped me understand how things are going to work.

I'm not sure I'm too happy about it, but I'm willing to give them a chance. Not that my opinion matters anyhow, but I like Perl and hope to go on using it, and that probably means coming to terms with the new version.

My two shakes...
