`I think I found a Synopsis fossil, in light of revision 29931, but wanted to be`

Modified: docs/Perl6/Spec/S02-bits.pod Log: [S02] remove 1/2 and +2-3i literal forms, now rely on angle dwimmery for literals, or constant folding otherwise.

<snip>

Complex literals are similarly indicated by writing an addition or subtraction of -two real numbers without spaces: +two real numbers (again, without spaces around the operators) inside angles:- 5.2+1e42i- 3-1i + <5.2+1e42i> + < -3-1i >As with rational literals, constant folding would produce the samecomplex number, but this form parses as a single term, ignoring surrounding precedence.

<snip> Basically, I found this line in Synopsis 2, in the section talking about unspace: 1+3\ i;

`So the question is about whether this example should be kept as still valid code`

`or whether it is now invalid and a fossil?`

I suspect it *is* still valid, at least if this by itself: 3i ... is a valid literal denoting <0+3i>, but wanted to check. -- Darren Duncan
