“Using Perl 6” is a work-in-progress. Perl 6 is versatile, intuitive, and flexible. It embraces several paradigms like procedural, object oriented, and functional programming, and offers powerful tools for parsing text. Perl 6 is the newest member of the family of languages known as Perl. It represents a major break in syntactic and semantic compatibility from Perl 5, thus the increase from 5 to 6.
This book is primarily for people who want to learn Perl 6. It is a series of tutorials, not a comprehensive reference. We expect some experience in another programming language, though no prior knowledge of Perl is necessary. After working through this book, you should have a solid grasp of the basics of Perl 6 sufficient to solve your own problems with Perl 6.
