David Storrs skribis 2005-06-19 13:45 (-0400): > Seriously. Are default invocants really such a good idea?
Yes, as long as the default is $_. ./method doesn't use a default invocant. It calls method on the current invocant, which happens to be available as $?SELF: that doesn't mean it defaults to $?SELF. The term "default" is inappropriate if there is no way to specify anything else: $object./method is still invalid syntax. > All that said, I still agree with John... './' does not look like > method call syntax to me. That's good, because it's different from all other method syntax anyway, because it does not have any left hand side -- not even implied.
