2022.13 Roadmapping

Jonathan Worthington announced an updated Comma Roadmap. With native support for the Mac M1 processor, more module creation / maintenance support and lots of interesting new debugging facilities. All made possible by those of you buying a Comma Complete edition!

Wenzel’s Corner

Wenzel P.P. Peppmeyer had trust issues this week (/r/rakulang comments).

Did You Know?

Sometimes you want to store the logic for some action in a variable, and then call that. By giving that variable the &-sigil, you don’t even need to specify that sigil when calling that logic. For example:

my &surprise = Bool.pick
  ?? -> $value { $value * 2 }
  !! -> $value { $value / 2 }
say surprise(42);  # 84 or 21


Weekly Challenge #158 is available for your perusal, with a Happy 3rd Anniversary.
