Subject: LTA error message when using special colon method call form
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 417b
For example: class Foo { method bar { } } Foo.new.bar:; ===SORRY!=== Error while compiling <unknown file> Confused at <unknown file>:1 ------> F.new.bar:⏏; expecting any of: colon pair A seasoned Perl 6er will know what's wrong right away, but I'm concerned if newbies to the language will try the colon form of a method call as "how you do method calls sans parens".
