  • I'm not sure I like the assumption there. For a C<loop or C<while , I'll agree that Perl does not know when you are at the end -- it must test the condition (that you have specified); and it must ...

    Everyone, Please correct me if I am emailing the wrong address/list. Thanks. I have an idea for the int() function. I think it would be cool if it returned false/undefined when the argument passed to ...

  • I'm sort of side-tracking from the trend of discussions, but I was just thinking that I always found it annoying how you had to double backslashes in single-quoted strings. I like the bash's behavior ...

  • Hi, I was reading Damian's new excellent diary entry in which he explains the new currying syntax for Perl6. (For the lazy ones it's reachable at http://www.yetanother.org/damian/diary_latest.html) ...

  • I've always liked how VB allowed you to define "instance methods." Basically a more elegant way of doing callbacks, plus allows some structure within your callbacks. Will Perl6 allow this (Perl5 ...

  • One of the little bugaboos that got me a lot my first N years of doing Perl was that {m,} is a quantifier meaning "m or more", but {,n} is *not* a quantifier meaning "up to n". People like symmetry, ...

  • I was wondering how perl6 would stringify (as in Data::Dumper): 1) objects with 'my' and 'our' variables 2) $.property 2) subroutines (and coderefs) 3) properties (both is/has) Right now, the fact ...

  • While thinking Eiffel-ish thoughts the other day, I began to wonder if Perl6's classes could go beyond the simple private/public/protected scheme by optionally allowing for a property or method to ...

  • Consider the following. sub foo {...} foo *@ary; foo * @ary; Is this another place where whitespace will have meaning? Or should I add parentheses to disambiguate? Enquiring minds want to know. -- ...

  • Which brings up something I've been wondering about. Will there be a standard way in Perl6 to get meta-information about a given .pl or .pm file? The reason I ask is because I'm very interested in ...

  • I think maybe what you're looking for is another Eiffel/Sather-ism. I know Eiffel at least has both pre and post-conditions that look something like this(it's been a while, so if this isn't quite ...

  • The first one works because the return-value from the eval is undef if the block fails. The second one is because $@ is true if it failed, and false if it succeeded. I would imagine that you would do ...
