The co-owner of my company is a perlmonger, and it behooves me to learn a little perl, in case he becomes incompacitated or I have to use rebol to generate perl code (working on that now). I'm aware that perl 6.0 is meant to be a major revision and has been "pending" for a long time. It will be interesting to follow how backward compatible it is to v5.8.0. Major revisions can be headaches, methinks. tim
