Don't ask to ask, just ask

( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
  • Time
  • I also have no time and yet I find myself porting small pieces of p5 code to p6 just to see how to do it. Since I am not yet taking advantage of the new features, it really is quite straight forward and doesn't take a significant amount of time.
  • Reference Material
  • Have you seen Perl6::Bible? It should help a bit as a reference guide when things are unclear. I know the hassle of joining p6.l to try and get a single question answered so if it isn't in the "book" yet, you might consider joining #perl6 on IRC. Just have a window open lurking and if you have a question, ask and it will be answered or someone will go find the answer for you.
  • P6 Rules/OO
  • Well, as much of PGE (rules) that exists to date from pmichaud is available to Pugs and p5 regexen via PCRE are also available. While full OO support isn't in yet, a great deal is. And when you find something missing that you want - ask for it (really). Having a real need for something is usually motivation enough for the people with time to implement it.

See Get Involved With Pugs for more information. Oh, by the way - Pugs can use CPAN modules now!!

Cheers - L~R

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.
