in reply to
comments and qw
TimToady had not seen this thread otherwise he would
have advertised that was a no-brainer in Perl6.
I asked him but could not find that thread again.
Hopefully I crossed again it in "best nodes"
So from the mouth of the horse^Wcamel and some other
#perl6 usual suspects:
Feb 23 00:05:33 <cognominal> recently in perlmonks someone wanted a
+ qw() that supported comments, is there an idiom for that in perl6?
Feb 23 00:06:02 <Juerd> cognominal: <<>>, IIRC
Feb 23 00:06:43 <cognominal> I was surprised not to see TimToady pu
+shing a Perl6 solution :)
Feb 23 00:07:10 <TimToady> cognominal: I don't think we actually sa
+id anything about comments, but considering that it's "shell quoting"
+, and shells have comments, they could sneak in there...
Feb 23 00:07:12 <Juerd> It could still happen
Feb 23 00:07:45 <Juerd> TimToady: But let's not have \\\n :)
Feb 23 00:07:55 <TimToady> Didn't see that PM thread...
Feb 23 00:08:03 <audreyt> shells have line-terminated comments
Feb 23 00:08:13 <Juerd> audreyt: That was implied :)
Feb 23 00:08:21 <TimToady> So put line breaks in.
Feb 23 00:08:36 * audreyt purrs randomly
Feb 23 00:09:51 <audreyt> my @x = <<
Feb 23 00:09:59 <audreyt> This is some splitted words # but not
Feb 23 00:10:05 <audreyt> and this too # but not this
