Re: Perl6, modifying @*INC

in reply to Perl6, modifying @*INC

BEGIN{ push @*INC, 'C:\Rakudo\lib';}

Add a space before the opening curly: BEGIN { @*INC.push( 'C:\Rakudo\lib' );}

The reason is that {...} directly after a statement is parsed as a postcircumfix, which is very handy if you want to access hash elements like %hash{$key} (but which is intentionally not special-cased to hashes).

The error message could be improved, though.

    Thanks!

    I also noticed that the indirect method syntax for push doesn't work inside the BEGIN block. I wasn't sure if that was a feature or something still to be done.
      It's a well-known bug. Unfortunately we have some roadmap items to complete before we can fix that - we need to have static lexical pads at compile time to make built-in functions available in BEGIN blocks.

        Thanks.

        I was just curious. I can't complain because I haven't helped develop Rakudo. :)

        Thanks for all of your work on Rakudo.

[Mj1234]: Hello Monks, I have installed Active perl 5.16 and 5.14 but I dont find Devel::GDB package when I try to install through ppm
[Discipulus]: i'v installed ubuntu 16.04lts and i'm quite disappointed: is deadly simmilar to new win osses where you cannot find even simple things...
[Corion]: Hi Discipulus ;)
[Corion]: Mj1234: Maybe Ubuntu didn't package Devel::GDB? In that case, consider using local::lib and install the module from CPAN
[Corion]: But a quick Google search turns up this page, which seems to suggest that it should be packaged
[Discipulus]: iirc active perl has repositories only for last 2 o 3 major release of perl Mj1234. I strongly suggest portable version of strawberry perl and use cpan client to install modules
[choroba]: Also, who needs GDB when there's hdb?
