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

A few comments:

$newgrid[$x][$y] = given @.grid[$x][$y] { when 0 { 1 if $live == 3}; when 1 { 1 if 1 < $live < 4 }: } || 0;

Is probably better written as:

$newgrid[$x][$y] = given @.grid[$x][$y] { when 0 { 1 if $live == 3}; when 1 { 1 if 1 < $live < 4 }; default { 0 }; };

However, the exact semantics of the given statement haven't been fully defined yet (as in, if it returns the return value of the last given), so it might not be good to rely on that. Chances are, if it is implemented as a builtin multimethod, it will, though.

? ... : is now ?? ... :.

<STDIN> should be <$*STDIN>, since filehandles are now scalars, and STDIN is a global. (<> might still default to STDIN, though.)

Pretty good tho.

Also, there are 2 working versions of life in the Perl6 compiler located in parrot/languages/perl6. (As if anyone cared. :-/)

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



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
