Correct -- there are some excellent REPLs for perl5 such as Devel::REPL and tinyrepl.

The advantage for Perl 6 will be (but is not yet) it's multi-threaded friendliness. I am slowly working on the tools to build something like clojure's nREPL -- a client/server repl where your console, editor, and even front-end world can all be talking to an interactive instance of your application with deep introspection and cool coordination through middleware.

Once it is working, rakudo-js will then allow this to get some really sweet workflows going, where you can edit code in your editor, have it pushed up to your browser, and use a console on the server to inspect and manipulate the state on the browser during interactive development.

    Although REPL really provide greate help for people to get start in
    learning a new language, I don't think we should call the REPL a
    feature. It's just a implementation feature. I believe one can
    easily add
    a REPL for perl5(anyone here did?).

    I would vote for the concurrency feature and the so called
    built-in OO.

    By the way, can I have a chance to watch this talk? Would it be
    uploaded to
    Youtube in the future ?
