3. Could I define primary key for a bag variable?


All items in a Bag are "primary keys", but there's no data additional
data associated with it.

    I mean whether I can see Set as a table  and Bag as a table with a
unique constraint? like:
       subset test of Bag(test_name Str, test_ID Int, primary key(test_ID))

I don't think you can really do something like that. Perl 6 as specified leaves many things up to libraries. Implementing a Table type will no doubt be one of those things. I would like to have a Table type that will work well with the Tree/Plex type that I am working on.

In the meantime, a table would need to be represented as an array of hashes, or a hash of arrays.

        HTH,
