  • Commented on Perl 6 Status
    Peter, I hate to even have to bring it up, but I feel I am forced to because as a working Perl5 programmer one of my unpaid job duties is fighting FUD and convincing my peers that Perl is not...
  • Commented on Perl 6 Status
    yeah the whole, 'they are separate languages' is more of a political move to try and resolve the issues between the communities. In my mind the harm done to Perl by insisting Perl6 is going to replace Perl5 significantly outweighs...
  • Commented on Perl 6 Status
    would you be open to a patch that outlines the relationship between Perl5 and Perl6? This is still clearly a frustrating and FUD prone topic. Something like: What in the relationship between Perl5 and Perl6? Although Perl6 was originally envisioned...

  • Commented on Validating Nested JSON Hashes with Moose
    Sometimes I use HTML::Formhandler to wrap this type of validation / inflation, that way I can get a results object (with accumulated error messages) instead of throwing an exception. The ability to get all the validation errors is pretty useful....

  • Commented on Subroutine signatures in Perl are long overdue
    Ovid, I'm looking forward to sub signatures as well, but for the validation case I personally find using something like HTML::Formhandlers a better fit as I'd prefer to return a validation results object rather than raise an exception (which is...

  • Makoto Nozaki commented on Improving the grant program (2) Bi-monthly Grant Cycle

    Dear jjn1056,

    Apologies I missed your comment.

    The limit is per grant, not per person. This is defined in the Grants Committee Charter as: "(The committee is not able to enter) any contract or agreement worth more than $10,000"

    Although Perl6 was originally envisioned as the next great version of Perl, the community now deems Perl5 and Perl6 as separate projects

    There doesn't seem to be a clear position on that. For example, look at this talk from Liz, in particular:

    • never bought the sister language argument
    • Perl is evolving, and this is it
    • The new Perl is Perl 6
  • Peter Sergeant commented on Perl 6 Status

    I am reticent to add the link to Perl 5 - I think anyone who cares about the status of Perl 6 probably already knows exactly how it relates to Perl 5, and I'm keen not to add too much extra stuff to the page. Happy to be persuaded I'm wrong though.

  • Peter Sergeant commented on Perl 6 Status

    OK. I have merged a commit that did this.
