Do you know where your variables are?

Language support for:
  • A non-destructive s/// operator which returns the new string.
  • subs/methods with proper parameter lists (the usual stuff: names, Perl types, default values, basic type annotations)
  • Calling subs/methods with either positional or named arguments.
  • Declared methods, like "sub" but with implicitly declared $self.
  • Declared class methods, like "sub" but with implicitly declared $class.
  • Autoboxing which treats e.g. hashes and hashrefs in a similar way. This may remove the need to fix the ugly dereferencing syntax mess.
Many of these things seem fairly compatible with Perl 5. Some may just need a bit more support in core perl to be solid and/or fast enough to be usable.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
