in thread :punct: vs. {IsPunct} in 5.8

It's a bug alright. A documentation bug...

I checked the Unicode properties, and these are the results:

CodepointCharClass
0024$Currency Symbol
002B+Math Symbol
003C<Math Symbol
003D=Math Symbol
003E>Math Symbol
005E^Modifier Symbol
0060`Modifier Symbol
007C|Math Symbol
007E~Math Symbol

So those are not "punctuation" according to the Unicode standard... Time for a PunctPerl class, to keep company to SpacePerl?

Most of my code is tested...

Perl is strongly typed, it just has very few types (Dan)
