  • ok, cool, I'm beginning to understand perl6 patterns a bit better. Just a tiny request though (and I seem to remember this being discussed) - I wish that there was an easy syntax to turn regexes ...

  • Speaking of subs, and especially recursive ones which have been mentioned en passant earlier, I have another question "of mine": I know that in the vast majority of cases this won't be useful in any ...

  • Dear all, I've recently thought of a possible syntax extension for (Perl5's) [un]pack() and I posted my "RFC" to clpmisc where it didn't have much success, I must say. However I'm not interested in ...

  • In perl 6, the statement @foo = (1.. 5) ; is equivalent to @foo = (1, 2, 3, 4, 5); Is there similar shorthand to set @foo = (5, 3, 3, 2, 1) ? I know you can go @foo = reverse (1 ..5); but this has ...

  • Maybe I'm wrong here, but I'd get $str = "abracadabra"; bracadabr cadabr dabr br (so far identical), but then I'd also expect bracad cad d brac c br which gets me to the question, if there'll be some ...

  • I know that, you know that ... but the synopses never actually say it. It's evident from context, but it's never said explicitly. I would *think* that should be in the "Operator renaming" section of ...

  • Like this? (Assuming single quotes don't interpolate @foo[...]) @a = ('a', 'b', 'c'); '@a[0]' ~~ m:/ @a /; # true '@a[2]' ~~ m:/ @a /; # true '@a[9]' ~~ m:/ @a /; # false If so, that seems pretty ...
