  • Commented on Is Perl 6 Being Renamed?
    I think the renaming is long overdue. I hope it's for the good. As for the new name I don't particularly like Raku. For a Brazilian Portuguese speaker it sounds harsh. But I think it's mostly about having time to...

    I love the basic construct, but I feel reusing the keyword 'esle' could lead to confusion when quickly scanning the code. Perhaps something slightly distinct, 'forelse' or 'felse'?
