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.

What's even funnier is that Richard Dale is more of a programmer than your sorry ass ever will be. - this is from back in 2001 and I'm sure he's done a lot more since then and before that.

Maybe its time for you take up salmon fishing up there in Alaska and leave programming to people who actually know what they're talking about.
