Re^2: [perl6] More Inline::Perl5 musingsby syphilis (Bishop)

Thanks Corion, Tux, duelafn.
Not much to add except that the level of support for perl5 extensions seems pretty good.
In general, I haven't yet found a way to access overloaded operators directly.
Instead I'm calling the overloading subroutines by name - eg:
I was hoping to be able to do something like:
but that doesn't work, so I have to resort to calling Math::Float128::_overload_div() by name.
That's no big deal, but it still puzzles me that say "# $f3"; apparently manages to access the Math::Float128 overloading of "" without any need for me to call Math::Float128::_overload_string() by name.
Yet for all other overloaded operators I'm having to call the relevant subroutine.
The penny will drop when it's ready to fall ;-)
I'm also wondering whether Inline::Perl5 will work on MS Windows. Any experience of that here ?
I think it should be ok:
At some stage I'll grab a Windows version of perl6 ... and find out ...
