I can't imagine why I would want to put a space between an aggregate and its index (personally, YMMV). That makes it appear as if there are two entities there, when in fact it is one. I can imagine why I would want whitespace in a regex though (and the proposed RE system looks really great). I'm also under the impression that disallowing a space between %hash and {key} allows %hash {block} to perform a block action. The big mistake here is not a whitespace issue, though-- or an inconsistency WRT whitespace. It's a symbol issue.

Apparently Larry has a {} fetish. There is not a single reason why %hash[key] is less acceptable than %hash{key} in Perl6, yet it looks as those the latter will be the way to go. If you kick out %hash{key} in favor of %hash[key], you immediately open up the possibility that %hash [key] can be allowed (unless I've missed something that indicated [key] on its own to mean something the way {key} on its own means something).

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
