Re: are signatures still experimental?
Message ID:

Yes, they are

Try this snippet
perl -E 'use feature 'signatures'; use warnings; my $a = sub ($b,$c) { 
return $b + $c; }'

You can find current status for your perl with `perldoc feature` command 
and then find signatures section.

I expected attempts to make them stable from 5.30 version but looks like 
perl core team focused on different things. So signatures are still in 
5.26 state.
