in thread The Future of Perl 5

Function signatures are long overdue, but why the hack do we need to wait for a fast implementation? We could start with a slow one like shown in Function::Parameters , stabilize the API ASAP and implement the fast version afterwards?
My current intention is to have *all* of that done by the time 5.30 is released.

    Dave that would be great, thanks! :)

    Not sure what "*all*" means, but if it includes named arguments I'm happy already!

      At the very least I expect to have done named parameters, container and value aliasing, and some form of constraints.


        That's an excellent news. Thanks, Dave, for your efforts.
