"The Once and Future Perl6, or Everything I know about Perl6
I learned from Damian and Larry in the past two weeks"
My summary of what I know about Perl6, including how it got here,
what's happening right now, and where it's likely to go.
Randal L. Schwartz is a two-decade veteran of the software
industry -- skilled in software design, system administration,
security, technical writing, and training. He has coauthored the
"must-have" standards: Programming Perl, Learning Perl, Learning
Perl for Win32 Systems, and Effective Perl Programming, as well as
writing regular columns for WebTechniques, PerformanceComputing,
SysAdmin, and Linux magazines. He's also a frequent contributor to
the Perl newsgroups and the Perl Monestary (perlmonks.org), and
has moderated comp.lang.perl.announce since its inception. His
offbeat humor and technical mastery have reached legendary
proportions worldwide (but he probably started some of those
legends himself). Randal's desire to give back to the Perl
community inspired him to help create and provide initial funding
for The Perl Institute. He is also a founding board member of the
Perl Mongers (perl.org), the worldwide Perl grassroots advocacy
organization. Since 1985, Randal has owned and operated
Stonehenge Consulting Services, Inc. Randal can be reached for

questions on Perl and other related topics.
