Thanks for this thread.

It's incredibly heartening to those of us who are grinding away at designing the next generation of Perl to know that at least some folks "get" it.

Apocalypse 5 ("Regexes and Parsing") will be released in the next day or so and it's going to be a prime example of that "stealing from the rich" philosophy. Regexes are going to change Big Time (e.g. imagine having the full power of yacc/RecDescent native in Perl!)

There will no doubt be much kicking and screaming about some of the fundamental changes we're planning. But we're doing it precisely because certain other languages currently do some aspects of pattern matching and parsing very much better than Perl. So we'll steal their ideas, perlize them, and end up surpassing the originals.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
