Introduction to Perl6

This site is about Perl 6, the future version of Perl. If you are looking for a solution for the current production version of Perl 5, please check out the Perl 5 tutorial. This Perl 6 Tutorial is based on the training material used by me (Gabor Szabo) to teach Perl 6 in various training classes. It is a work in progress. If something is unclear or incorrect, please let me know. Start here reading the material or jump ahead based on the Table of Contents. If you need even more indexing, check out the index of all the Perl 6 Maven site.

The Perl 6 Tricks and Treats newsletter has been around for a while. Blog/unix/BinDirectoryOrigins. Once upon a time, Unix was very small and fit entirely in what is now the root filesystem, /; hence, among other things, /bin, which was where commands went.

blog/unix/BinDirectoryOrigins

This didn't last very long, and by the time of at least the Third Edition in 1973, there was an additional /usr filesystem with a /usr/bin for 'overflow' programs that didn't fit on the root filesystem any more. (As I heard the story, the root filesystem was deliberately set up to contain everything you needed to rebuild at least the kernel, in case you booted a kernel that couldn't mount the user filesystem. Hence as late as V7 Unix you could find the C compiler as /bin/cc and so on.) I'm not sure if very many things migrated from /bin to /usr/bin, or if it was just that after a certain point normal programs stopped being added to /bin. (Sun was a major contributor to the growth of /bin when they made it possible to have diskless machines, especially with NFS. Introduction to Perl6.

Perl 6 is the sixth edition of the Perl programming language, representing a major backwards-incompatible rewrite of the language.

Perl 6 Programming

It's a versatile and powerful multi-paradigm programming language. This book is going to introduce the reader to the Perl 6 language and its many features.
