Hi there,

is this a bug?

> perl6 -Ilib -e 'require Bailador; say Bailador.^ver'
No such method 'ver' for invocant of type 'Perl6::Metamodel::PackageHOW'
  in block <unit> at -e line 1


> perl6 -Ilib -e 'use Bailador; say Bailador.^ver'

it seems that there a 2 different metaclasses being used:

> perl6 -Ilib -e 'use Bailador; say Bailador.HOW'

> perl6 -Ilib -e 'require Bailador; say Bailador.HOW'

See I'm using mi6 to generate my META6.json file from the report and it picks the version up from the module file. Other options like that seem sensible to me.

    but your approach means you have to state the version in the
    META6.json AND in the Module.pm6 file again. This would be the
    similar to having $VERSION in perl5. Shouldnt there be a simpler way?

    Hi Martin,

    This works for me:

    File mytest.pm6

    use v6;
    unit module mytest:ver<0.0.1>;

    sub myver is export

    File mytest.p6

    #!/usr/bin/env perl6
    use lib '.';
    use mytest;

    say myver;

    Console output:


    I this what you meant?

        Hello everyone,

        I wanted to repeat the question that I asked today on #perl6.
        I am looking for a way to retrieve the version of a
        Perl6-Module from within the module itself.

        <ufobat> there is often a our $VERSION in perl5 modules. is
        this still idiomatic/a good way to go in perl6
        <timotimo> i think the version is meant to be part of the
        meta info and such?
        <ufobat> but that means the module itself does not know about
        its version, just e.g. zef does?
        <timotimo> i'm convinced there ought to be a way to get the
        full meta info from whatever installation your script was
        grabbed from
        <timotimo> but i don't know what or how
