in reply to P6: how to <strike>supercede</strike> supersede

It helps if you spell it right :-)
$ ./perl6 -e 'supersede sub a { }' ===SORRY!=== "supersede" not yet implemented at line 1, near " sub a { }"

... for some value of "helps".

What works today is hiding outer sub in an inner lexical scope:

sub asub ( $ace, $deuce?, $trey? ) { say "$ace $deuce $trey"; } use Test; plan 1; { sub asub( $ace, $deuce?, $trey? ) { 'asub' }; is asub(1), 'asub', 'lexically hiding works'; }
Perl 6 - links to (nearly) everything that is Perl 6.

    If you secede on spelling "supersede", you cede success and seed duress, successively and successfully.

    Well, um, um, ah, yes. Good point, thanks and for the work around.

    It is nice to see improved error messages in the pipe.

    Be well,
