General Development The purpose of this essay is to explain why I believe Perl 6, the way it currently seems to progress, is the wrong thing at the wrong time, and why I predict (with all the expected caveats of predicting something) that it won't be successful. I will also suggest a better alternative for the future of Perl which makes more sense at this point.

I guess is that of "it is more important to write than to read" and of TIMTWOTDI. On the other side you have the bondage& discipline Ada family.

Probably ruby and python are near to the middle in the continuum.
