Perl 6 Rakudo Star

Software

So it looks as though Perl 6 might be coming soon… again!

#!/usr/bin/env perl -wT
use strict;
&sayWooHoo("again");
sub sayWooHoo {
    print ("Hey, 6 might be coming soon, $_[0]!");
}

My first job out of high school was writing Perl programs. Was the happiest time of my life, because university hadn't crushed my spirit yet. Perl is awesome. CPAN is awesome! And don't believe what they say, it is possible to write Perl programs that you and others can understand later, provided you follow the conventions :).
