With the same technique like demonstrated in yield() one could simulate a syntac sugar function sig(), which would assign arguments from the upper caller sig( my($a,$b) ). sig could easily handle a lot more like:
But the need to declare each variable to be lexical is cumbersome, who really wants to constantly repeat my ?
so having a new keyword or syntax would facilitate things a lot
or even better
while I'm not sure if it's possible to use | w/o dangerous ambiguity.
