Howdy, peoples! I've written a few more posts on my blog about my adventures exploring Perl 6.
After a remarkably long wait, several false starts, and an unfathomable amount of work by the community, Perl 6 is here. Let's see just how easy it is to get up and running and to write a few simple programs.

I recently started using Jeffrey Thalhammer's excellent Stratopan to manage CPAN dependencies for a new Perl project. I had played a little with Stratopan before, but now that I'm starting to get some use out of it, I am even more impressed with Jeffrey's work.
Stratopan allows you to create your own CPAN-like site in the cloud, which you can use to maintain a stable basket of dependencies for your project. You won't have to worry about new versions of distributions sneaking onto your private CPAN and breaking your stuff. Even better, you can upload your own, private CPAN-like distributions, and now you have the entire CPAN toolchain available to manage your internal codebase.

use feature 'signatures'; use feature 'postderef'; no warnings 'experimental::signatures'; no warnings 'experimental::postderef';
That can be abbreviated a bit by passing a list to feature and just turning off the entire experimental class of warnings:
