extending a bit more this off topic thread about nice perl modern tools, just 
mention  for the adventurous that you would be able, next month, to test porting 
some bioperl to perl6 if you wish:


I have not tried the inline-Rakudo yet but seems a nice way of start to test 
perl6 inside your perl5.

Have a good weekend
