Purdue Perl Mongers,

Larry Wall's (author of Perl) Linux Showcase talk is available at .

Summary: Perl 6 will probably be very different from Perl 5.  Perl 6
will probably not grok Perl 5 programs directly but they'll be some
way to translate Perl 5 programs to Perl 6.

Thought you might be interested.
