.NET & C#

weather: drizzling
outside: 9°C
mood: concerned
I'm writing from my Mac again. Not that that makes my entries more exciting... in fact, it's still as random and boring as it usually is. =S

I'm installing Visual Studio .NET on my P3. "This may take a minute or two" says Microsoft. *snark* It's an hour and a half according to everyone else who's installed it. So, yeah, I'm doing .NET/C# work now. I really don't know how much I'll get done before the end of this week. It should be cool.

I'm always inwardly freaking when I'm starting something I've never done before. And this is exactly the stupid, baseless fear that kept me from working with Perl earlier. It really shouldn't be that bad. I mean, it looks very familiar and works very familiar (in that Java/C++ way) when I was looking at it with the Kinda-Boss-ish-Like Person in his office.

I just realized this morning that I won't be seeing my Kinda-Boss-ish-Like Person for a loooong while. Our holidays overlap such that I won't be seeing him for over a month.

Perl 6.0
Did you mean Perl 5.6.0 or Perl 6.0?

Perl 6.0 doesn't exist yet. The language spec is in the middle of being done, and the underlying machine (Parrot) is currently being developed (and showing signs of being significantly useful before Perl 6.0 is completely specced out).

Or did I miss something?

Re: Perl 6.0
Which one is "the Object Oriented Perl"? I thought it was Perl 6.0 and I thought it was further along than that...

I just overheard a conversation somewhere and didn't think much about it, so I could be talking out my ass.

Re: Perl 6.0
I'm not positive, but I think that support for object orientation came in with Perl 5.0, along with packages and a bunch of other things.

But I'm not sure whether that is what was meant with "The Object Oriented Perl"; it's not OO in the sense that, say, Java or Smalltalk or even Python or Ruby are. It supports OO, but it's not built into the language to such a great extent and the internals are (or can be) more visible.

Re: Perl 6.0
Ah, okay that explains a lot.
