I can ask for a slurpy hash of named arguments with '*%args', or a slurpy array of non-named arguments with '*@args', but I want an ordered list of Pairs (specified with 'name => value'). Is there a good way to get that?
class testing { method newhash(*%args) { for %args.kv -> $k, $v { say "Hash Key $k => Value $v"; } } method newarray(*@args) { for @args -> $k, $v { say "Array Key $k => Value $v"; } } } my $x = testing.newhash(a => 1, b => 2); # Messes with specified ord +er my $y = testing.newarray(c => 3, d => 4); # Looks good, but doesn't w +ork my $z = testing.newarray('e', 5, 'f', 6); # Works, but ugly
Hash Key b => Value 2 Hash Key a => Value 1 Array Key e => Value 5 Array Key f => Value 6

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
