Inline::Pugs - Inline Perl 6 code in Perl 5


    use Inline Pugs => '
        sub postfix:<!> { [*] 1..$_ }
        sub sum_factorial { [+] 0..$_! }
    print sum_factorial(3); # 21


Is it Perl 5? Is it Perl 6? It's neither, it's both. It's Inline::Pugs!

The Inline::Pugs module allows you to insert Perl 6 source code directly inline in a Perl 5 script or module.


Currently, only the Perl 5 side can invoke subroutines defined from the Perl 6 side, but not vise versa. This whole thing is just a proof of concept -- use it at your own risk. :-)
