in reply to Thoughts on Perl6 - Love it? Hate it?

I need some help with perl6.

I'm using a module that employs the following statment:

$stuff = 3.14;

Question: Has anyone heard of the 14 method? Anyone else had any similar trouble with the 3 object?

Yuk, yuk. ;-)

Jest aside, I've always liked the -> notation merely because it *was* different and, once explained, made perfect sense to me.

Having said that, I doubt I'll be heartbroken or anything once it goes away.

    Yay. I'm not the only guy that likes the arrow notation! The "dot-notation" doesn't bother me in a big way though.

    What still kind of wrankles me (for no real reason I could articulate) is the sigil issue. I liked the fact that the sigil was different based on context.
