Disabling the interpretation of diamond <> operator in package?by LanX (Sage)
|on Apr 09, 2018 at 20:46 UTC||Need Help??|
LanX has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm experimenting with some operator overloading and I'm getting bitten by the diamond operator. A numeric "less-then" < in list context is parsed as the start of a diamond glob <>
I'm aware that I could give bla an empty prototype in line 9 or call it with an empty list (like in line 11), or embrace it in brackets, but I need it to swallow a list of args in other parts.
I'm not very confident there is a way but the almighty monastery is always able to surprise me... ;-)
for those wondering, other operators "work"
