The London Perl and Raku Workshop takes place on 26th Oct 2024. If your company depends on Perl, please consider sponsoring and/or attending.

Changes for version 0.29

  • Restore compatibility with certain older perl versions (5.10 and 5.12)
    • It seems that “ATTRS: lvalue” doesn’t work with older perls, but that you can forward-declare the method in Perl code with the :lvalue attribute with the same effect.
    • This version of Want is still broken with perl 5.8, for reasons I haven’t investigated.


A generalisation of wantarray
