As an aside, I've always found Perl's treatment of sigils confusing - especially when using hash slices! So I applaud Raku's more uniform approach, amusingly explained by Damian Conway in this youtube talk (9:45-10:40) in the following two tables of which sigil to use when:

Full contents$@%
Individual element$$$
Multiple elements@$@@
Multiple elements with keys%$%%

Full contents$@%
Individual element$@%
Multiple elements$@%
Multiple elements with keys$@%

I especially enjoyed TheDamian's quip at the 10:30 mark:

It really does make everyone's lives easier ... except for people who are coding in both Perl 5 and Perl 6 at the same time. Your lives will be misery. :)

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