Actually, it would make for more readable code if Perl6 made it so that:
$obj a b c(d,e) f

meant the same as Perl5's
$obj->a->b->c(d,e)->f

or the proposed
$obj.a.b.c(d,e).f

I hope that perl6 drops the confusing bareword notation for functions (as opposed to method calls), though. Having a b c d mean the same as a(b(c(d()))) causes you to have to suddenly start reading from right to left to track the order of program execution, even though the rest of Perl is left-to-right.

Title:
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.
