So, you're implying that it will be illegal to use 'list' as an array name in Perl6? What on earth are you talking about?

Also, he was backslashing the @ because \@list.min was in an interpolating heredoc.

    No, I usually don't imply anything. I'm just saying that naming an array "list" is misleading. It is neither wrong nor illegal. Just misleading, as it might strengthen some people's beliefs that arrays and lists are the same things.

    Also, he was backslashing the @ because \@list.min was in an interpolating heredoc.

    I hadn't thought of that. I always use quotes around my heredoc terminator specification and thought non-interpolating was the default.

    For a moment, I thought so too. But then I dismissed it, as he didn't escape the $ sigils.

      Well, he changed the code example at this point, so who knows what he was thinking? :)
