in thread hash deref confusion: Intermediate Perl

That's not specific to slices though. In Perl 6 sigils are not context-dependent; they are variable-dependent and context-invariant. In Perl 5, where sigils are used to indicate context, using @ for hash slices is pretty consistent with the rest of the language.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    It is, but its still quirky, look, there is a list on the right side:

    %hash = @list;

    @list = %hash;
