NOTES ^

Perl 6 developers are refactoring relevant introductions, tutorials, specifications into the Perl6::Doc namespace; expect to see this module subsumed by it in the near future.

If you are interested in helping out the documentation project, please contact us on irc.freenode.net #perl6 or perl6-compiler@perl.org.

Synopses

The document codes S01 - S33 refer to the Perl 6 Synopses.

The Synopsis documents are to be taken as the formal specification for Perl 6 implementations, while still being reference documentation for Perl 6, like _Programming Perl_ is for Perl 5.

Note that while these documents are considered "formal specifications", they are still being subjected to the rigours of cross-examination through implementation.

In other words, they may change slightly or radically. But the expectation is that they are "very close" to the final shape of Perl 6.

Apocalypses (outdated)

The document codes A01 - A33 refer to the Perl 6 Apocalypses.

Larry Wall started the Apocalypse series as a systematic way of answering the RFCs (Request For Comments) that started the design process for Perl 6. Each Apocalypse corresponds to a chapter in the book _Programming Perl_, 3rd edition, and addresses the features relating to that chapter in the book that are likely to change.

Larry addresses each relevant RFC, and gives reasons why he accepted or rejected various pieces of it. But each Apocalypse also goes beyond a simple "yes" and "no" response to attack the roots of the problems identified in the RFCs.

Exegeses (outdated)

The document codes E01 - E33 refer to the Perl 6 Exegeses.

Damian Conway's Exegeses are extensions of each Apocalypse. Each Exegesis is built around a practical code example that applies and explains the new ideas.

METHODS ^

Perl6::Bible provides a class method to get the raw text of a document:

    my $text = Perl6::Bible->get_raw('s01');
