  • Hi Is there any chance that in perl6 there will be the possibility to write if/else statements without {}s with the condition at the beginning? Like if (condition) statement; In order not to break ...

  • I use over and over this idiom in perl5: $a{$_}++ for @a; This is nice and perlish but it gets easily pretty boring when dealing with many list/arrays and counting hashes. I thought overloading the ...

  • There's a subtle problem / feature resulting from the "is rw" trait that may be so obvious that I'm making a fool of myself, or it might be that it's not yet occurred, but I don't recall seeing ...

  • All - Awhile back, I saw Larry Wall give a short talk about the current design of Perl 6. At some point he put up a list of all the operators - well over a hundred of them! I had a sudden ...

  • Would it be a good idea to make ==, and other numeric comparators polymorphic so they can be used also for string comparisons? Or the will is to keep eq, gt and the others. (not very nice emho). ...

  • Actually, can't we just use the . for s///? You'd then use $foo.s/// to get the new string ang $foo.=s/// to mutate $foo. For bare s///, I think copying is more useful than mutating. I'm not sure, ...

  • I was looking at *Unit the other day, and at the very satisfying "Mock Objects" systems that have grown up around them for automated testing. In a Decorator/delegation context, it seems like yet ...

  • As I try writing P6 programs I do find myself needing required named params, and I thought I'd like something like ++$named_req for myself as a shorthand for "+$named_req is required" or whatever is ...

  • Is it possible to "hyper" a hyper operator? For example, given: my @m = ( [1,2], [3,4], [5,6] ); my $a = @m + 1; my $b = @m +« 1; my $c = @m +«« 1; is it true that: ok($a == 4); ok($b »==« [ 3, 3, 3 ...

  • Funny you should ask! It is clear that there is a missing "list concatenate" operator, and that its spelling should be ~~. Alas, that is already taken by "smart match". On the other hand, perhaps ...
