Hello everyone, I was toying around with Pugs and I tried the following Perl 5 list assignment
my ($a, undef, $b) = 1..3; Which gave me the following error message: Internal error while running expression: *** Unexpected "," expecting word character, "\\", ":", "*" or parameter name at <interactive> line 1, column 14 I had a quick discussion on #perl6 with TimToady++ during my lunch hour, and he said that assignment to undef was no longer valid. His suggestion was to use the whatever operator (*) instead. Now, this isn't implemented and my Haskell skills and knowledge of Pugs' internals aren't really advanced enough to implement this feature, however I can surely contribute the tests. Here's what I have right now in my working copy, let me know if this seems reasonable. my @a = 1..3; my ($one, *, $three) = @a; is(~($one, $three), "1 3", "list assignment my ($, *, $) = @ works"); my (*, $two) = @a; is($two, 2, "list assignment my (*, $) = @ works"); my (*, *, $three) = @a; is($three, 3, "list assignment my (*, *, $) = @ works"); my (*, @b) = @a; is([EMAIL PROTECTED], "2 3", "list assignment my (*, @) = @ works"); Any input would be very much appreciated (and some links to documents that could help me contribute to the internals of Pugs), Vincent.
