say Bool.pick Xxx ^5 will only ever output one of these two results (() (True) (True True) (True True True) (True True True True)) (() (False) (False False) (False False False) (False False False False)) If you place the left side in a list it does work say (Bool.pick,) Xxx ^5 (() (True) (False True) (False True False) (True True False True)) First came to my attention with this commit As far as I know it has never worked though The infix:<xx> operator has a thunky of 't.', and that code in the commit is looking for a thunky of '.t' or '.b' etc infix:<&&> has a thunky of '.t' and infix:<xor> has a thunky of '.b' A proper test would be something like the following my $count = 0; is-deeply ($count++ Xxx ^5).list, ((),(0,),(1,2),(3,4,5),(6,7,8,9)); is $count, 10;
