Transition of CPAN to Perl6 ?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View

Greetings.  What's intended to happene to all the Perl5 CPAN modules ?
Will there be big push for authors to translate their stuff into Perl6 ?
Can the translation be automated ?
In fact will it be done automatically anyway ?
Or is the intention to prune out some less
approved modules and reorganise the namespace ?

(Hope these aren't FAQs somewhere... :-) )

Regards, Peter

The latter sounds very interesting, but is probably a huge undertaking.

You will be able to use Perl5 modules within Perl6:

  use perl5:Some::Module;

But there are also plans for a "cpan6", which will allow modules of
several programming language (Perl5, Perl6, JavaScript, ...) to be hosted:
