=encoding utf8 =head1 TITLE [DRAFT] Synopsis 31: Pragmatic Modules =head1 AUTHORS Tim Nelson <email@example.com> Larry Wall <firstname.lastname@example.org> =head1 VERSION Created: 24 Feb 2009 Last Modified: 24 Feb 2009 Version: 1 The document is a draft. If you read the HTML version, it is generated from the Pod in the specs repository under L<https://github.com/perl6/specs/blob/master/S31-pragmatic-modules.pod> so edit it there in the git repository if you would like to make changes. =head1 Overview It is a general policy in Perl 6 that any pragma designed to influence the surface behavior of a keyword is identical to the keyword itself, unless there is good reason to do otherwise. On the other hand, pragmas designed to influence deep semantics should not be named identically, though of course some similarity is good. All floating point IEEE modes must be lexically available via pragma except in cases where that would entail heroic efforts to bypass a braindead platform. XXX FIX: I (Tim Nelson) have no clue as to what the above entails, so the spec does not reflect this XXX =head1 Pragmata =over =item use autoindex -- see S09-data.pod =item use bytes -- see S05-regex.pod =item use chars -- see S05-regex.pod =item use codes -- see S05-regex.pod =item use graphs -- see S05-regex.pod =item use m :foo -- see S05-regex.pod =item use MONKEY_TYPING -- see S12-objects.pod =item use PDL -- see S09-data.pod =item use regex :foo -- see S05-regex.pod =item use rule :foo -- see S05-regex.pod =item use rx :foo -- see S05-regex.pod =item use s :foo -- see S05-regex.pod =item use self -- see S06-routines.pod =item use token :foo -- see S05-regex.pod =item use oo :closed :final -- see S12-objects.pod =back =head1 Additions Please post errors and feedback to perl6-language.
