Purdue Perl Mongers,
You can get a preview of how Perl 6 will be different from Perl 5
by reading Larry Wall's Apocalypses (there are three so far):
Apocalypse 1 http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2001/04/02/wall.html
Apocalypse 2 http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2001/05/03/wall.html
Apocalypse 3 http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2001/10/02/apocalypse3.html
Damian Conway, globe-trotting Perl evangelist has had his teaching
contract at Monash University bought out for another year to do all-Perl
stuff. Here are his comments on Apocalypses 2 and 3 along with sample
Perl 6 code.
Exegesis 2 http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2001/05/08/exegesis2.html
Exegesis 3 http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2001/10/03/exegesis3.html
Is there any interest in having meetings, offices, etc? I could give
a "Beginning Perl" talk or "Beginning mod_perl" talk. Would any one
else like to volunteer to give a talk?

p.s. Our web page (in need of updating) is at http://purdue.pm.org.
If you have ideas regarding it or would like to work on updating it
please contact me---I'm temporarily busy working as a technical editor
for two mod_perl books for Sams Publishing and coordinating remodeling
my home. It will be a while before I have much time to spend on it.
