in thread ~~ and list literal

TIL that parentheses don't imply a list context. Also these don't:

"x" ~~ qw(x y z) "x" ~~ sort(x y z)

I find that only this do: "x" ~~ @{["x", "y", "z"]}

Any other which I missed?

    TIL that parentheses don't imply a list context

    Ofcourse, I never said parentheses imply a list context, it's the comma operator that does.
    But, what I did say/wrote is that the smartmatch ..infers contexts from the actual types of its operands and uses that type information to select a suitable comparison mechanism...

    Please, check perlop for detailed information

    If you tell me, I'll forget.
    If you show me, I'll remember.
    if you involve me, I'll understand.
