One of the biggest changes between Perl5 and Perl6 is a much more robust and fully featured signatures system. Combine this with the languages type system and multi methods and you have a multitude of different options for specifying how a function can be called.
This talk will take you through the various options including :
- Signatures and Parameters
- Typing, Sub Typing and where clauses
- Multi Methods and the call chain
By the end of the talk you'll have a thorough understanding of the intricacies of Perl6 functions and methods.
