Perl 6: Revision 30
Welcome to the Perl 6 Workspace
What is Perl 6?
What is Perl 6? Perl 6 is an extensively refactored, super-modernized, and ultra-supercharged derivative of Perl 5. Simple things will still be simple to do, but you'll have enormously more "programming leverage" available for tackling challenging tasks. Chromatic has written a good introductory article on why Perl 6 is needed, and what it is. Also see Juerd's Refuting Perl6 Myths. (A slight correction to Juerd's slides: it is Perl 5.10 that will have many Perl 6 features you can start using. These will be in feature.pm which is currently part of the Perl 5.9 developer branch.)
