Make $?ROLE, $?MODULE and $?CLASS available
rakudo/rakuast: 24a66ea055 | (Stefan Seifert)++ | 2 files
Properly support access to role attributes from role methods

When a role's method tries to access the role's attribute, we need to generate a runtime lookup for $?CLASS, as attributes will be found on the concrete class instead of the role's type, i.e. nqp::getattr(self, $?CLASS, '$!attr') instead of nqp::getattr(self, MyRole, '$!attr')
rakudo/rakuast: 8ef48b0390 | (Stefan Seifert)++ | 3 files
Fix $?CLASS et al leaking outside the package's scope

In addition to adding generated lexicals for $?CLASS, ::?ROLE, etc. to a package's block, we need to declare those lexicals at BEGIN time, so they are available to traits, signatures, the parser etc. However doing so in PERFORM-BEGIN would get them added to the surrounding scope, thus making them still visible after the class body was finished. ...

Make coercions up to 1.6x as fast

  - calling method named after type, e.g. Int() -> .Int: 1.6x as fast
  - calling .COERCE: 4% faster
  - calling .new: 3% faster
This has been achieved by breaking up the large "coerce" method into ... (15 more lines)

Make unsuccessful connect fail rather than die

Spotted in stackoverflow.com/questions/726398...socketinet
There is no documentation or tests covering the behaviour of a failed connect. It is actually the nqp::connect that throws (which turns out also to be not documented BTW).
Having it return a Failure feels more natural indeed.

Xliff Hmmm... I get "Signature constraint check failed in binding to parameter '&c'; expected :(|mallocParams) but got :(NativeCall::Types:..." 11:27
That almost looks like a way to attach function pointers to a symbol, which I desperately need. What kind of changes would it take to make it work? 11:28
^^ lizmat vrurg jnthn MasterDuke
lizmat Xliff: that's really outside of my mindset atm, MasterDuke is moving house and only online occasionally, and jnthn is not on this channel anymore 11:29
so maybe ask it on #moarvm

Geth rakudo/lizmat-optimize-native-substr: 714eb6e832 | (Elizabeth Mattijsen)++ | src/core.c/Str.pm6
Add native candidates for sub substr

This makes:
   my str $a = "foo bar baz";
   my int $f = 4;
   my int $c = 2;
   say substr $a, $f; # bar baz
   say substr $a, $f, $c; # ba
about 2.8x as fast.
