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.

Shannara:

For someone who claims to be a "programmer", I found it extremely funny that he does not know the difference between a programming language and a scripting language

Mystilleef:

What's the difference between a "scripting" language and a "programming" language?

Indeed, I have to say I find Shannara's comments 'extremely funny'..
