Larry Wall presents the State of the Onion 2003, which may eventually tell you something about Perl 6, but if you can get to the end of it, you're a better person than I am.
Actually, it's only eleven pages, and if you read it backwards (I think Larry Wall would probably understand and appreciate that method) it's not so hard. After shaking my head through the first three pages, that's what I did: skipped right to page eleven and read page ten after reading that, and continued in that manner. I don't know if that counts as reading the whole thing, because I never did read several of the middle pages. None of it really helped me understand what's going to happen with Perl 6, but fortunately O'Reilly has recently published Perl 6 Essentials, which I suspect is probably a better way to find out.
Got something to add? Send me email.
