Admittedly, that wasn't particularly germane to the perl6 mailing list; but it did bring up an issue that's been bothering me for a while.
I would like to see Perl6 handle the equivalent of IPC::Open2 using the same sort of syntax and semantics that it uses for sockets, by default. That is, I'd like to be able to say something like: $fh = "filename".open :rw; # same as open2 "filename", $in, $out; $line = =$fh; # same as $line = =$in; $fh.say "rewrite!"; # same as $out.say "rewrite!"; -- Jonathan "Dataweaver" Lang
