considering its age, no wonder perl5 has many grammar in-consistence and pitfall. If you want a cleaner, more consistent language, perl6 is preferred.





I am trying to improve my English skills, if you see a mistake please feel free to reply or /msg me a correction

    The fact that a list of scalars isn't a scalar isn't an inconsistency, and it's not a factor of its age.

    Can you return multiple values from a Perl 6 sub? Can you assign those multiple values to one variable? How does one specify which value to get from that variable?
