(Whiteknight) (Discuss) (Book Foundry) (Current Books) (VBD Edit)

The current Perl Programming book only covers Perl 5. I would like to create this, a parallel book, to cover the Perl 6 language. Since there are such significant differences between Perl 6 and Perl 5, I think it warrants having two books. This book will not necessarily cover material in the same order that it is presented in the Camel book (and therefore in the Synopses). I would like to have a template that shows the list of implementations and whether they support particular features. --Whiteknight (Page) (Talk) 19:06, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
