Cool! Welcome -- we're a motley bunch of ants, but somehow we manage to cooperate (sort of) to haul food toward the nest (on average). :) By the way, try the #perl6 channel on freenode, if you haven't already. It's very friendly. > Is there something like a usuable CPAN for perl6? Kinda. The two projects I know of that might be worth knowing about are proto and Plumage. The former knows about virtually all Perl 6 projects out there, but isn't for keeps. The latter targets all of Parrot, and is actually built to be more than a stop-gap solution. <http://github.com/masak/proto> <http://gitorious.org/parrot-plumage> > Any database API like DBI? You might want to check out Squerl. It's no DBI, but I expect that people will be able to do non-trivial things with it. <http://use.perl.org/~masak/journal/39686> <http://use.perl.org/~masak/journal/39894> <http://github.com/masak/web/blob/master/lib/Squerl.pm> If you find it's not enough for your needs, please let us know. // Carl
