  • Re: for =$*IN -> $guess { ... } versus for $guess in { ... }.
    IMHO the first form is fucking ridiculous.
    • You might be thinking of PHP, where that knee-jerk "we've put in absolutely milliseconds of design-in-the-small" sentiment has produced such a wonderfully cohesive and consistent gestalt.

      Do you know what the * twigil signifies in Perl 6? Do you know what any twigil signifies? If you don't know what $*IN means, how can you possibly have any hope of devising an alternate syntax? (Or does your example assume an implicit macro predeclaring a bareword?)

    • Dear ghod, it's only bloody syntax.
