  • Speaking of "CPAN for Perl 6" (or "CP6AN", or "6PAN"), what's the status of this effort? Do we even have a vague idea of the requirements? Or does everyone think CPAN (and module ...

  • I'm still unclear as to how you implement lex-like longest token rule with P6 regexes. If the | operator grabs the first one it matches, how do I match "bacamus" out of this?: "bacamus" =~ / b.*a | ...

  • Now that it seems that Parse::RecDescent and, ultimately, Parse::FastDescent, will be subsumed into the Perl 6 regex/grammar system, I've been thinking about how to implement P::RD directives such as ...

  • First, a slight clarification: if I say: m:w/ %foo := [ (\w+) = (\w+) [ , (\w+) ]* ] / does this give me a hash of arrays? (i.e. is the rhs of a hash processed as a scalar context) When I look at ...

  • I'd like to be able to use REs to generate lists of strings. For example, it might be nice to create a loop such as: for $i (sort(p:p5|[0-9A-F]{2}|)) { # "p" operator for "production"? and have $i ...

  • Larry discounted RFC261 in A5, but I think there's some good in it. The biggest problem is not that it's hard to do in Perl6, but that 80-90% of it is ALREADY done in Perl5! Once you peel away that ...
