Subject: [LTA] Pointless to P5-warn on % sigil interpolation which Perl5 does not do
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 642b
Since Perl5 does not interpolate %-sigiled variables in quotes, it is kind of pointless to warn on use of Perl5 symbolic variables when they are being considered for interpolation by a qlang. $ perl -e 'print "%+ "' %+ $ perl6 -e 'print "%+ "' ===SORRY!=== Error while compiling -e Unsupported use of %+ variable; in Perl 6 please use .to method at -e:1 ------> print "%+⏏ " Better behavior is to just use it literally as we do with, e.g.: $ perl6 -e 'print "%= "' %= (This ticket addresses a side-issue raised by a bunch of auto-generated RTs from S32-str/sprintf-b.t, so we don't lose that information while cleaning the tests up.)
