I wasn't critiquing your implementation of Perl6::Say, just the useability.

As you say, it's just one of those features that you cannot adaquately emulate at the Perl level. I'm having a go at trying my PP_say() wrapper around pp_print() in pp_hot.c--but it segfaults with my first attempt (and second:().


Examine what is said, not who speaks.
Silence betokens consent.
Love the truth but pardon error.
