Perl 6: Revision 172
Welcome to the Official Perl 6 Wiki and Home Page
(Also see the Official Parrot Wiki and the Official Perl 5 Wiki.)
Perl 6 is the "Super-Perl" successor of Perl 5:
- "We're really serious about reinventing everything that needs reinventing." — Larry Wall (2000).
- "The Perl 6 design process is about keeping what works in Perl 5, fixing what doesn't, and adding what's missing. That means there will be a few fundamental changes to the language, a large number of extensions to existing features, and a handful of completely new ideas. These modifications, enhancements, and innovations will work together to make the future Perl even more insanely great...." — Damian Conway (2003).
- "Perl 6 and Parrot have some extremely ambitious goals, and it’s my belief that the value and impact of our hard work and patience is going to play out for a very long time — that is, over at least many decades." — Patrick Michaud (2006).
