$text =~ /<Diff.file>/; # Invoke through grammar
In Apocalypse 5, Larry uses ::, not . to separate grammar and rule names.

This is a method call.

Update: As Juerd rightly points out, there is a distinction between a grammer and a class, and their rules and methods. However, the same syntax is used to call a rule from a grammer, as a grammer can inherit from other grammer(s), delegate to other grammers, and possibly even autogenerate rules. In these cases, the rule needs to be treated as a method call.

    file is a rule, not a method. (Diff is a grammar, not a class. -- There is a parallel, but Damian and Larry interpret it differently)

[Corion]: Hi marto!
[Corion]: I hope all is well marto! ;) My godson had a surprise visit to the hospital yesterday because he fell and had cut his skin besides his eye, but everything was glued together again and all is well
[marto]: good grief, that's not fun, glad to hear all is as well as could be :)
[Corion]: marto: Yeah - their mother picked all three of them up at the kindergarden to then go to the hospital, and all three of them were well behaved, and all also were quite obedient when they came home, so they recognized the situation
