RFC: general feedback on module port
Message ID:
If any of you are willing, I would appreciate any general feedback on 
my first complete module port to Perl 6, including test suite, 
particularly if any parts don't look like proper Perl 6.

I haven't tried executing it yet, since Pugs lacks some features. 
But it will be easier on them if what they try to execute is correct 
in the first place.

I am referring to any file in the Pugs version control under this directory:

You can browse the whole Pugs source tree on the web here:

Alternately, the core module itself is visible here:

I have already applied or considered everything said on this list in 
answer to my questions.

On a side note, I also decided to apply one of Larry's style 
preferences to all of my Perl 5 modules (and the above Perl 6 
module), which is to not use parenthesis with 'return'.

I will start porting another module that is about 25 times larger in 
a week or two; any feedback I get meanwhile may also aid that task 
being done correctly.

Thanks to the rest of you who are working on driving Perl 6 in some 
fashion; we're much better off for your contributions.

Have a good day. -- Darren Duncan Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
