Perl 6
Perl 6 Tablets: Revision 17

These are the Perl 6 Tablets, a comprehensive manual, packed with every information we know about Perl 6. The content is nicely sorted and indexed to be used as a encyclopedia. Many links allow you to follow your interest freely. For a lightweight introduction, try the Perl 6 Tutorial.

These tablets started as my initial effort to write German Perl 6 documentation. It's still maintained in the german Perl wiki. Ruins of my first attempt to translate this into English can still be excavated down under, but let's make it more official here.

DISCLAIMER: completely translated are currently only the introduction and the 5 appendices.
