Subject: whatever auto closure fails with smartmatch with regex
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 357b
When using smartmatch against a regex, auto-whatever closure generation does not work whereas manual pointy closure does work. A '{ * eq $match}' behaves differently than a '{ * ~~ /<$match>/}'. However, '-> $x { $x ~~ <$match>}' behaves as expected. For a test case: https://gist.github.com/zengargoyle/5a14f01a35918f6c3391b90e9b85a22a ---- zengargoyle
