There are, of course, changes in the syntax between perl 5 and Perl6. Obviously. Some are for the better, some will take getting used to. What will become of our favoured idioms? We don't want to end up like middle-aged parents tutting at their childrens' txtspk, but we want to stay cool without having to write k3wl.

As Larry himself is a linguist, this is a cultural look at how language changes, is changed and changes the users.
