( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Like many monks here, I suspect, I've become used to Perl-5 and have to an extent disbelieved in the advent of Perl-6. However, due to the poll and constant references to Rakudo in some monks posts, I am spending this weekend playing with it rather than pottering in the garden.

I got the latest from github built and installed and I'm working my way through "Using Perl 6" at the moment.

So may I extend a hearty thanks and congratulations to all involved, and request they undo the terrible damage they have caused in my household by popping over and doing the lawns ;)

Now, on to the question, The following code gives me the error stated, is there something obvious I'm not getting WRT blocks in Perl 6?

#! /usr/local/bin/perl6 #vim: filetype=perl6 use v6; my $var="Does this work"; for $var.split(' ') -> $word{ if $word eq 'work'{ say "That worked we reached the end of the string";
        }else{
say "Getting there..."; } }
Gives the error:
===SORRY!=== Missing block at line 8, near "else{\n\t\tsa"
print "Good ",qw(night morning afternoon evening)[(localtime)[2]/6]," fellow monks."
