in thread [Perl 6] Any provision for a "dereferencing object"?

We made it really easy to write closures and deref them in Perl 6 so that people would not feel the need to invent special syntax for deferred evaluation. So basically, you use curlies to delimit any kind of "tail without the animal", and calling a closure is how you add the animal back in. And closures have the advantage of taking additional arguments if you want multiple degrees of "animal" freedom in your locator. S12 is now clarified to indicate that $object.$methodname() is able to call into a closure as well as into a named method. Thanks.

    "Thanks"? No, thank you! (I added a link to the quote above and I'm reporting hereafter the relevant part of the Synopsis.)
