Re^5: What's wrong with Perl 6?by BrowserUk (Pope)
|on May 14, 2007 at 09:41 UTC||Need Help??|
An almost complete aside from the purpose of this thread, but it comes as a direct result of seeing a little real-world(ish) Perl 6 code posted here.
I can see that pieces of code like this from above are likely to be quite common in Perl 6 class implementations:
Ie. The assignment of batches of named formal parameters to instance variables with the same (similar, the $.pref/$cereal_pref disparity not withstanding) names. And vice versa.
Is there any shorthand available for this kind of 'batch assignment' from method parameters to instance variables?
I was thinking along the lines of $.= ( $name, $rank, $pref );
and say $= ( $.name, $.rank, $.pref );
Is there any mileasge in that?
