I read in Apocalypse 4,
But I've come to the conclusion that I'd rather screw around (a little) with the "insignificant whitespace" rule than to require an extra unnatural delimiter. If we observe current practice, we note that 99% of the time, when people write a hash subscript they do so without any whitespace before it. And 99% of the time, when they write a block, they do put some whitespace in front of it. So we'll just dwim it using the whitespace.

... Therefore, we will make the rule that a left curly that has whitespace in front of it will never be interpreted as a subscript in Perl 6. (If you think this is totally bizarre thing to do, consider that this new approach is actually consistent with how Perl 5 already parses variables within interpolated strings.)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.

    [1nickt]: I just got my feet wet with some DBIC coding this last week. I feel "meh" about it so far. It was pretty easy to add a sub to the DBIC class to filter search results ...
    [1nickt]: ... in the calling code ... $rs = $rs->maturity(" stable");. But I don;t enjoy feeling that far away from the SQL and the DB, really.
    [1nickt]: The same project (CPAN Testers API) is using experimental signatures (and therefore 5.024) ... which is what replaced Method::Signatures , afaict.
    [1nickt]: But the new $job is on an older Perl and therefore using M::S, the syntax of which looks clunky to me, so far.
