Aiui you can now use this module to introduce SalesReport as
a module name and SalesExportGram as a grammar name.

As Brandon noted, SalesReportGram is misspelled in this case.
Aiui SalesExportGram ought to work.

Is SalesReport resolving to the module (which does not have
a method 'parsefile')? To see if this is so, try:

    say SalesReport.HOW      # how is SalesReport handled?

What version of Perl 6 are you using? If I correctly understand
what I just checked, SalesReport.parsefile() should work.

The best place to get answers to these sorts of questions is
the freenode IRC channel #perl6. Feel free to email me if you
would like help getting going with IRC.

If you really want/need to use a mailing list, consider posting
to the perl6-users list. This perl6-language list is intended for
posts related to language design. (Which is why just about
the only traffic is the slow trickle of updates to the language
specification, which is relatively stable, and a very occasional
burst of discussion about some topic. It may get noisier in the
second half of this year when concurrency starts to get a work
through, but I think most of that will be on #perl6 too.)
