See for the history of this problem. This ticket is about this particular case: perl6 -e 'my $x = q:to/foo/; blah ' ===SORRY!=== Error while compiling -e Ending delimiter foo not found at -e:3 ------> <BOL>⏏<EOL> expecting any of: whitespace Arguably it shouldn't be hard to find “foo” in your code, but in some cases it may be more obscure. We can do better by mentioning where this construct was started, like we do in other cases: perl6 -e ' ( ' ===SORRY!=== Error while compiling -e Unable to parse expression in parenthesized expression; couldn't find final ')' (corresponding starter was at line 3) at -e:5 ------> <BOL>⏏<EOL> Also, it should either omit “expecting any of” section, or do something useful there.
