Hi Ask, perl6-meta, and perl6-stdlib,
Today at YAPC in the Perl 6 session there was some discussion of modules
and what work needs doing in that area for Perl 6.
Basically it breaks down the following two topics:
WHAT goes into the core? (covered by perl6-stdlib)
HOW do we write Perl 6 modules?
My notes can be found at
http://infotrope.net/opensource/software/perl6/modules/ where I discuss
the work that needs to be done on the "how" side, particularly the issue
of a style guide documenting "best practice" for Perl modules and how we
can hopefully apply this best practice as we rewrite modules for Perl 6.
I would like to set up a perl6-modules to discuss this topic, which I
believe is separate from the question of "what goes into the standard
Discussion should probably be on -stdlib until -modules is set up.
Thanks in advance,
