That's the $message parameter.

It signals that that parameter is a named parameter / adverb; if you want
to set it, you make the call like
$smtp.send($from, $to, $msg, :keep-going)
$smtp.send($from, $to, $msg, :keep-going(True))
3) not finding how to attach a file
Strictly speaking, that is not an SMTP function. You would use a MIME
module to generate $message with an attached file. (This would likely be an
example of $message not being a Str; it would be some kind of MIME object
which let you add or reference attachments, and had a .Str method to
generate the actual encoded message to be sent over SMTP.)
(SMTP is a network protocol. It doesn't even necessarily need to be mail,
although that is by far its most common usage. It only handles plain text.
MIME is the specification for including attachments and formatted text /
HTML / etc., and how those things are encoded as plain text and decoded for
viewing or extraction.)
