Subject: Named enums don't work correctly with a quoted list

enum Phonetic ( :Alpha<A>, <Beta Charlie> ); say Phonetic.enums; # "Alpha" => "A", "Beta Charlie" => "B" I believe I have localized the problem to the line (3297) in src/Perl6/Actions.nqp that I have commented out below. The lines I have replaced it with make it work for the test case above. ( Of course it isn't general enough ) I don't know enough NQP to properly fix it myself. if $term_ast.isa(QAST::Op) && $ eq '&infix:<,>' { for @($term_ast) { if istype($_.returns(), $Pair) && $_[1].has_compile_time_value { @values.push($_); } elsif $_.has_compile_time_value { @values.push($_); } else { # @values.push($*W.compile_time_evaluate($<term>, $_)); @values.push( $_[0][0] ); # <==== @values.push( $_[0][1] ); # <==== } } }

This report predates the GLR where flattening behavior changed. Under GLR rules you'd have to flatten the quoted list. However, it appears flattening directly inside the enum arglist is broken: $ perl6 -e 'enum Phonetic ( :Alpha<A>, |<Beta Charlie> ); say Phonetic.enums'"A"),"Beta Charlie" => "B")) $ perl6 -e 'enum Phonetic ( :Alpha<A>, |("Beta", "Charlie") ); say Phonetic.enums'"A"),"Beta Charlie" => "B")) # Due to a different RT this workaround doesn't work around unfortunately $ perl6 -e 'enum Phonetic (( :Alpha<A>, |("Beta", "Charlie") )); say Phonetic.enums'"Alpha\tA" => 0,:Beta(1),:Charlie(2))) $ perl6 -e 'enum Phonetic (( :Alpha<A>, |<Beta Charlie> )); say Phonetic.enums'"Alpha\tA" => 0,:Beta(1),:Charlie(2))) Maybe repurpose this RT as "flattening/slips ignored inside enum value list"
