And there's already 467 Perl 6 modules on the new archiveat (though Perl 6 will also be able to load modules written in other languages). "Perl has a huge community of avid users that continues to thrive in spite of detractors," says one developer, pointing to new applications for big data, in a new articlereporting that over one million people have downloaded ActivePerl's own Perl distribution just in 2015.
