  • I seem to recall the * operator being required for those parameter-binding semantics. Has the the unary splat been cancelled, or am I mistaken?
    • The unary splat * takes an aggregate, or reference to an aggregate, and flatten them out on the invocation list. Unary splat on hash arguments flattens it out as pairs for named bindings; splat on scalars deref it to find an array/hash reference; for code and non-reference-to-aggreate scalars it's a no-op.
