"We are all aware that there are 4 parties here:"

Hi Tux, with respect, you left out the group that includes me and most Perl programmers I know here and elsewhere:

  • Those who love Perl, have the same amount of interest in so-called "Perl6" as in <insert_lang_here> (i.e. zero), do not like or dislike it, indeed have no argument whatsoever with lwall or anyone else doing whatever they want in whatever language they want if that makes them happy, but resent the fact that they are squatting on Perl's name and reputation for "marketing".

If the butterfly people really loved Perl as they say, a long time ago they would have picked their own name and gone their own way and allowed Perl to flourish unencumbered, and we wouldn't be having the discussion (still) and there would be no need for you to be appalled.


The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

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 1nickt

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.
