Perl 6
Synopses: Revision 6
The Synopses are the (almost) human readable documents which constantly kept up to date, (unlike other historic docs like apocalypses and exegeses.) mostly after discussions at the "p6l mailing list"<>.

^^^ History

The Perl 6 design process began with a call for RFC (requests for comments) in July 2000 at The Perl Conference 4 (todays OSCON). In the next one and half year 361 RFC came in and [Larry Wall] sorted them and answered with the Apocalyses. [Damian Conway] tried to make them easier accessible and enriched them with examples. He got help from [Allison Randal] and so the Exegeses were born. But people today are not very patient and want a quick diff between Perl 5 and 6. That is why the Synopses were written.

^^^ The Term

comes from the latin word for compare. Its mostly used today by theologians (like apocalypse and exegesis too) who call the 3 gospels (except John's) synoptical gospels, because the tell almost the same story in the same order, even some parts are in each version different or missing.

* (Synopses on MediaWiki, with 'history' and 'watch' functions.)
* the Perl 5 module Perl6::Doc and the docreader grok install the synopses on you machine in POD format.
