Extending Syntax - Signatures, Operators and Compound Statements


60 minutes



At the London Perl Workshop 2014 we demonstrated how to combine functional programming (for syntactic sugar) and a macro mechanism (for speed) to extend Perl in a "smarter" way.

That means with low investments, backwards compatibility and a strategic perspective to include the product into CORE after a sufficient testing phase.

Now we want to present some hands-on examples demonstrating the realization of

- Function Signatures
- Meta Operators like functions
- Compound Statements

Last 10 minutes will be reserved for discussions.
