  • This is quite a nice language upgrade!
    • Thanks. The plan is to prototype it out in Method::Signatures and then implement it in 5.12.

      • You mean, there are already plans to fold the Devel::Declare magic into 5.12. At least supporting subroutine signatures would be great.

        • I mean put in a real method keyword and function signatures straight into the language. No screwing around with tokenizer hacks.

          And by "the plan" I mean "my plan". rgs might have something to say about it. :)

          • I frankly get more excited about this kind of evolution that the full Perl 6 upgrade, which I expect will take years longer before I can use it for real work with reasonable performance.

            Thanks for the clarification!
