Perl 6 Tricks and Treats newsletter

Note! This site is about Perl 6.
If you are looking for a solution for Perl 5, please check out the Perl 5 tutorial.

Are you interested in Perl 6? Do you want to be notified when there is a new article on the Perl 6 Maven web site? Maybe some other, Perl 6 related news?

This newsletter started on in March 2009 on my personal web site ( but as I am moving over all my Perl 6 related content to this new site, I am going to move the mailing list as well.

Regarding privacy and your e-mail address: I will make all I can to protect your information. The fact that you trust me by providing it in the subscription form makes me feel proud and committed to keep it safe. After all, I don't want to lose your trust.


Originally I set up the list on 11th March 2009. The first message and the first post was about Arrays with unique values

I was not sure how I'd like to call this newsletter. I started with Perl 6 code and then other ideas such as bread crumbs and bait came up. At one point I was even thinking about Gragger, as I opened the list on the day of Purim, but then my sister suggested treats and so we arrived to the expression Trick or treat.

I loved the idea but I thought in our case tricks are also treats so we should use and between the two words.

Anyway, tips would be also a good name but I did not want to call it Perl 6 Tips as there already was a good Perl Tips list focusing on Perl 5.

The Perl 6 Tricks and Treats newsletter has been around for a while. If you are interested to get special notification when there is new content on this site, it is the best way to keep track:
Full name:
This is a newsletter temporarily running on my personal site ( using Mailman, till I implement an alternative system in Perl 6.
