Perl 6
Perl 6 Quotes: Revision 12
  • Larry Wall (2000): "We're really serious about reinventing everything that needs reinventing.".
  • Damian Conway (2003): "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....".
  • Larry Wall (2006): Perhaps the Perl 6 slogan should be "All Your Paradigms Are Belong To Us". We'll get to that.
  • Patrick Michaud (2006): "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.".
  • Larry Wall (2008): In ecological terms, I hope Perl 6 will have a very wide gene pool.
  • Larry Wall (2008): Perl 6 tries to dance right on the edge of requiring continuations without actually doing so, which opens up many opportunities for doing something more efficient than continuations most of the time

<TimToady> ... Perl 6 is not intended to be a first programming language, but a last one. (#perl6, 2009-04-10)


<TimToady> look, we're trying to do something impossible here. So we expect to fail. But we expect lots of people to love our failure. (#perl6, 2009-04-10)
