in thread SOLVED: Perl6, latest Rakudo bug or error on my part?

Valid point, entertainingly made, and I am entirely sincere in my gratitude for the work you and others have put into Rakudo. It just seems strange, coming from Perl 5. that }else{ isn't parseable as I would expect.

I spent a very educational weekend however and may even attempt, in my limited way, to contribute to the project.

print "Good ",qw(night morning afternoon evening)[(localtime)[2]/6]," fellow monks."

    Perl6 use the dot for method invocation and underscore for concatenation!!!!! Please adjust your expectations :)

      I think perl6 use tilde(~) for concatenation not underscore ;)

        IIRC in the year 2003 it was underscore :)

    In all seriousness, there's a point at which disambiguation in the parser (whether software, hardware, or wetware) is just too much work, and a bit of punctuation makes that pain go away. You can take that too far (and in the case of Python, I have to read very carefully to figure out the relationships of blocks separated by vertical whitespace) but sometimes a little consistency is not a bad thing.
