Internally, however, there are still kinks and stumbling blocks that developers need to sidestep, long-abandoned features maintained only for backward compatibility, misdirected phrasings that hinder more intuitive syntax structures, and a cacophony of modules that sometimes work well together, but occasionally don't. Perl 5 continues to have a strong following devoted to its development, but in the meantime, a core group of Perl developers has begun work on Perl 6, a complete rewrite of the Perl language. While Perl's creative philosophy and common-sense syntax are sure to remain in Perl 6, everything else in the language is being reexamined and re-created.

Want to learn how to program and think like a computer scientist? This practical guide gets you started on your programming journey with the help of Perl 6, the younger sister of the popular Perl programming language. Ideal for beginners, this hands-on book includes over 100 exercises with multiple solutions, and more than 1,000 code examples so you can quickly practice what you learn. Experienced programmers—especially those who know Perl 5—will also benefit. Divided into two parts, Think Perl 6 starts with basic concepts that every programmer needs to know, and then focuses on different programming paradigms and some more advanced programming techniques. With two semesters’ worth of lessons, this book is the perfect teaching tool for computer science beginners in colleges and universities. Learn basic concepts including variables, expressions, statements, functions, conditionals, recursion, and loops Understand commonly used basic data structures and the most useful algorithms Dive into object-oriented programming, and learn how to construct your own types and methods to extend the language Use grammars and regular expressions to analyze textual content Explore how functional programming can help you make your code simpler and more expressive

Write good regexes and parsers with the Perl 6 programming language. You’ll see how regexes are used for searching, parsing, and validation: in particular the grammar extension makes them uniquely suitable for parsing, the main focus of this book. Written by Perl 6 expert Moritz Lenz, a core contributor of Rakudo, Parsing with Perl 6 Regexes and Grammars starts from the very basics of regular expressions, and then explores how they integrate with regular Perl 6 code. Then follows a deeper exploration of how regexes work under the hood and a discussion of common techniques for constructing regexes and exploring the data under scrutiny. Later material goes beyond relatively simple formats to reusable named regexes and grammars, which permit code reuse in grammars, and shows how to write parsers for more involved data formats. Error reporting and case studies wrap up the topic. While regexes allow you to search for patterns in text and validate input, Perl 6 regexes advance that concept: you’ll see how they are easier to read, yet much more powerful, than the traditional "Perl-compatible regular expression". With improved reusability and backtracking control, you will be able to write complete parsers with the help of this book. What You'll Learn Discover the building blocks of Perl 6 regexes Handle regex mechanics and master useful regex techniques Extract data and work with patterns among these use cases Reuse named regexes and other grammars as components or templates Write full parsers, including advanced error reporting and data extraction Learn how to parse nested scopes and indention-based formats Who This Book Is For Those with at least some prior experience with Perl programming, but who may be new to Perl 6 as well as searching and parsing.

Perl 6 is a moden language that has been designed with the current computers, operating systems and the Internet in mind. It is very expressive, allows to transcribe mathematical thought to program very easily, and also has a thriving and helpful online community. It is good for this community to grow, and the best thing is to try and learn this language as your first, or maybe 0.5th, language. The basic prerrequisite for this book is to want to learn to program, and the second is to be curious and not afraid of testing new things. It is probably also OK if you already know a bit of programming, but you do not need to know Perl specifically. If you do, this book will try to teach you idiomatic Perl6 and also help you through some good practices when learning, or teaching, a new language. This is also a free as in free speech book, with a creative commons license. Check out its GitHub repo for updates, examples and some other goodies (including a play).

Object-oriented language for others. It is used for everything from performing quick global replacements on text files to crunching huge, complex sets of scientific data that take weeks to process. Perl is what you make of it, but regardless of what you use Perl for, this book helps you do it more effectively, efficiently, and elegantly. Learning Perl Objects, References, and Modules is about learning to use Perl as a programming language, not just a scripting language. This is the book.
