in thread white spaces between the sigil and the variable ( $ x = )

$foo{ three } = $doit->( 1 ); $quux{ two } = get_that( 25 );

There. All better now :) (And (probably?) compatible with Perl 6)

I personally believe that it strongly depends on how you're interpreting "compatible:" in fact the new dereferencer is a single dot and not an arrow any more - something that as far as I'm concerned (FWIW) seems reasonable and desirable 95% of the times and will make me regret the arrow the remaining 5% - but then think of the usefulness and clarity of dereferencing the implicit topicalizer (which is $_ as usual) and how ugly that would be if an arrow were to be used instead! Oh, and again I for one cherish the arrow now used for pointy subs, but that's mainly in connection with an RPL thingie that's very personal and possibly uninteresting to annoying for others so that I'm not repeating it here once more...

[perldigious]: Nice erix... perldigious' legs are so sore from portaging his kayak from place to place last weekend he can barely hobble 12m. :-)
[erix]: you're faster than me then :)
[erix]: well, at the moment, that is :)
[erix]: I should lose some weight although I keep telling myself that I'm doing extra training by lugging it along
[erix]: I saw a common kingfisher and a couple of bullfinches
[erix]: bullfinch ( a male and a female )
erix learned the word 'portaging' not so long ago (from vikings lugging their ships from one river-system to another)
