  • As an aside, Perl6 also doesn't seem to support symbols a la Ruby. But perhaps one can use the 36 radix form of number literal e.g. :36, :36. It's supposed to be ultra-fast cause it's nothing but number. But the caveats are: it's case-insensitive, you can insert "_" and 0 prefix without changing its value. But I think it's good enough and also rather cute.
    • Sorry, the formatter ate my symbols. Pretend [] are the correct braces: :36[MySymbol1], :36[Your_Symbol2].

      The "_"-insensitiveness can (and should) be viewed as a feature :-)
