  • In Perl 6, the equivalent form for $$/ is $(), not $/() -- there's currently no defined semantics for using $/ as a Code; $() works because it's defaulted to mean $($/), just like @() means @($/), and %() means %(). I'm really excited about the Match unification. Once that happens and ratchet matching becomes stable, there's a lot of production uses I can think of for it... :)
