in thread Perl6: S2 identifier and $ special var questions

Thanks, the code is explained.

How would I declare and use $MyClass::-O'malley's as indicated by the quoted spec?

Be well,
rir

    You may not start an identifier with - like that; hyphens and apostrophes are only allowed internally.

    In theory one can declare or use any name you like using Perl 6's explicit symbolic ref notation:

    my $::("-O'Malley's") = 42; say $::("-O'Malley's");
    However, neither implementation does constant folding well enough yet to recognize these as a static variable names.
