But to date most Perl programmers donıt program Perl inside an IDE, although it would be nice if Perl 6 had an IDE coming out of the box. My point was simply that people who program are in general more technically savvy than those who donıt. That doesnıt mean they use the command line exclusively, or at all, but it does mean that they should be capable of understanding visual metaphors other than those of the GUI world.
