Technical Overview - Perl 6
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 1 September 2002I've just posted up a technical article on Perl 6 to our main web site as it's really rather too long to have it as a regular posing on the board. See:
Really exciting stuff ..... looks like it's another winner!

I just skimmed the text, looks good!
But you're wrong where you state:
It won't print out alternately, it will print the contents of @x and then the contents of @y.
Will print out alternately.
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 12 October 2002Welcome to the board, Bernd - that you for posting and commenting and please carry on doing so. It looks to me that you're already well read in Perl, but do feel free to contribute (and ask questions) on the other forums too.
The case in point - yes, I'm sure you're right. The , is used to join (concatanate ) lists and so the example I gave would give all elements of one followed by all elements of the other. I'll take it from you that I should have used a ; and I've already corrected the source on our development web serever so that the URL referred to will be corrected witihin a few days.
A note to other readers - in this case, my slip up is clear but there are elements of Perl 6 that are still deveopling / being finalaised. Expect the final Perl 6 languge to look pretty d**n close to what I wrote, but odd little things may change before you see a test version. I will continue to provide updates from time to time on Perl 6, and they'll get more frequent once it's nearer to being available.
