I discovered in reading Synopsis 12 today that some code examples use
out of date syntax, as I understand it:
For example, look in the "Roles" main documentation section.
There are many places where the bareword "self" is used, whereas I
believe the current syntax is "$?SELF" for the same thing, and has
been for awhile.
any reference to C<self> or the type of the invocant
This problem may go beyond Synopsis 12, so I suggest doing a
search'n'replace in all the synopsis. Or at least in all of Synopsis
I'm fairly sure the "self" syntax is invalid.
Moreover, S12 explicitly says that Perl 6 has no barewords, save
package names in specific circumstances.
