A literal or an enumeration or constant is now allowed as a subset type of one. That is indeed fairly new. File a bug. That's one reason why the enumerations (e.g. True and False) got changed to capitalized, as they are grammatically types. That's straight from the camel's mouth: "basically any value can be used as a single-valued type in a signature ... and write the usual factorial with multi factorial (0) { 1 } etc"

So it was in there a month ago, at least. He shows the declarator form of constant in that discussion, so it might have been in his head before it was checked in to

Perhaps we could have a node here that runs P6 syntax through rakudo or the current treebuilder app.

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.
