CAT announcement

The Community Affairs Team has published a report about an incident in the past week.

Did You Know?

That without actually also binds the operand container allowing its value to be set in block?

my %order;
without %order<processed-at> {
    process-order( %order );
    $_ = DateTime.now;          # yes, you can set it here
say %order<processed-at>.year;  # will print current year

It not only prevents repeating hash key name in logic, but at the same time is more readable than other commonly used pattern:

%order<processed-at> //= do {
    process-order( %order );

This week’s entry suggested by Pawel Pabian. Check out the “did you know” registry, started by Wenzel P.P. Peppmeyer. Suggestions as Pull Requests welcome!
