Like others, I'm a little confused by the purpose of your post, but one word of warning that may upset your assertion: Perl 6 roles aren't stateless

From Synopsis 12:

Roles may have attributes:
role Pet { has $.collar =; method id () { return $.collar.tag } method lose_collar () { undefine $.collar } }

Of course, whatever state they have becomes a part of the instance into which they are composed (Can roles have Class attributes?), which in a way is a little similar to the way Functors acquire transient access to the values they are applied to, but still that state persists.

Given my previously declared (and sometimes comprehensively proven!) lack of Haskell-fu, I'm loath to draw conclusions, but I think that somewhat queers the pitch as far as comparisons between Functors and Roles are concerned.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

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