My first attempt to read Damian Conway's Exegesis 3 left me with a spinning head and serious doubts about Perl 6. Piers Cawley's Not just for Damians acknowledges that a lot of people feel the same way but makes a good case for the new features and inspired me to have another go at Exegesis 3. I liked what I found: the features discussed in the Exegesis have a distinctly functional flavour to them that will make it possible to write Perl code that is more concise but also more readable.
