Did anyone yell at you because the experimental signature implementation breaks anything?
Yes they did as a matter of fact. (Off the top of my head, lvalue subs got broken).

It's just syntactic sugar injecting pure Perl code in the body
No it isn't. Both perl (5.26.0 onwards) and cperl added specific new ops internally to support signatures.

Anyway, I'm not arguing with you any more. I've explained at great length to you various technical and logistical reasons why perl hasn't been getting lots of new features, and you just keep repeating your original complaints.

Bye!

Dave.

    OK, ... B::Deparse shows injected code according to Brian. I checked it once and found it too.

    I could say the same thing. I keep telling that we need a strategy and syntactic sugar and you keep repeating arguments (most probably from other discussions) around new OP-Codes.

    I didn't mean to make you angry.

    Thanks for the conversation, I learned a lot! :)

    And thanks for your hard work!
