( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Periodically, I dip into perl6, but haven't now in quite some time. However, I do vaguely recall being bit by this, and I believe I got the answer on IRC.

I can't find any clear documentation that states that <> doesn't interpolate, other than a very vague portion of the Class Hash doc:

The general Subscript rules apply providing shortcuts for lists of lit +eral strings, with and without interpolation. my %h = oranges => 'round', bananas => 'bendy'; dd %h<oranges bananas>; # OUTPUT: «("round", "bendy")&#9252;» my $fruit = 'bananas'; dd %h«oranges "$fruit"»; # OUTPUT: «("round", "bendy")&#9252;»

So it appears as though one needs to use <<>> for interpolation if you're using <> notation.

There's no mention explicitly that <> does not interpolate, unless I'm searching incorrectly.
