Rakudo * DATA filehandle syntaxby thundergnat (Deacon)
|on Aug 11, 2010 at 15:18 UTC||Need Help??|
thundergnat has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've been playing around a bit with Rakudo * and haven't been able to figure out the syntax to use the DATA filehandle. I'm beginning to suspect that it hasn't been implemented yet.
Google yielded meager results; the most promising was the preliminary "Learning Perl6" book by merlyn and brian_d_foy. It was written in 2007 however, based on pugs, and syntax has drifted since then.
I checked the Rakudo test suite to see if I could find a test using a DATA fh but didn't turn up anything.
Anyone have any pointers to documentation about this? (Even documentation saying "It isn't implemented yet."?)
