  • Aaron Priven commented on Is Perl 6 Being Renamed?

    In general, I think the "rename Perl 6 to Raku / rename perl 5 as perl 7" is a good solution, but I would suggest that the Perl 5 -> Perl 7 bump should happen only when there is at least something notable to include in it that would otherwise justfy the change. (Native OO system, non-experimental signatures with named parameters, something like that.)

    I mean, the big user-visible improvement in Perl 5.30 was "The upper limit 'n' specifiable in a regular expression quantifier of the form '{m,n}' has been doubled to 65534", which was pretty underwhelming. And so far, the most notable …

    Hi Yet,
    thank you very much for your input. I thought, when considering how to solve the task, about whether doing it backward would help, but could not see any benefit of doing so at the time. Right now, it is almost midnight here and I'm just coming back from a Paris Perl Mongers social meeting, meaning that I had some glasses of wine.

    Yeah, well, I understand what you mean and I mostly agree, Yet, but, strictly speaking, this is true only for x > 0. You have to add or subtract pi when x

    Oops, messages are cut off when there is the smaller than symbol in it.

    I try again:

    Yeah, well, I understand what you mean and I mostly agree, Yet, but, strictly speaking, this is true only for x > 0. You have to add or subtract pi when x is negative, and atan2(y, x) is usually defined for x == 0 (at least for values of y other than 0), even though y/x would lead to an exception when x = 0. I chose to give a geometrical interpretation of atan2 (the rectangular coordinates of a point in the plan) in my update to avoid having to deal with all these edge-case difficulties in al…
