Subject: Push versus append decision needed for feed taps
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 706b
Feeds recently got changed so the arrow operators follow GLR one-arg semantics. The discussion on this was here: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/perl6/2015-11-06#i_11492848 What this also changed is the function called on a feed tap object, so... my @a <== $t <== 1,3,4; Now calls $t.append. The former will require some fixes to examples in the design docs surrounding '<<==' and '==>>', and it should probably be decided whether the feed operator should be internally calling .append, or implementing its own single-arg-rule processing and still be calling .push. Or if something entirely different is liable to happen, the design docs on feeds should probably be re-marked as conjectural-till-post-6c.
