$foo:bar and Foo:bar are variable/package names with an colonpair appended. The entire thing is then called a longname, at least internally.

Test:ver(v1) makes it clearer what it does. You $abc:def example boils down to $abd:def(True) btw.

I'am a bit confused about the use of ':' in an identifier. I've read a bit about the ':' twigil but that seems to be used at the front of the id giving it a special use. Under 'identifiers' on the syntax page I couldn't find any about it. So I am referring to things like $abc:def and the like. Is there information in the synopsis documents?

Thanks in advance
