keutoi Is there a reason this docs.raku.org/type/Metamodel::Documenting kind of documentation is not used within rakudo impelementation? 08:40
lizmat keutoi ?? 08:41

keutoi m: say 1.WHY 08:42
camelia No documentation available for type 'Int'. Perhaps it can be found at
lizmat Ah, that!
that kind of documentation is not used in the setting because of bootstrapping issues 08:43
well, historically anyway
keutoi So using it within external modules is encouraged?
lizmat yes! 08:44
keutoi lizmat: Thank you.

tbrowder i found what is to me a trap while porting some old perl code. i was trying to demo it above 12:36
the docs don't say a lot about qq quotes which i use a lot for file generation. 12:37

tbrowder the code above works great in perl but the $a needs to be inside curly braces. the docs don't mention the simple case above but show various similar situations that don't require the braces 12:38
*needs to be inside curly braces in raku 12:39

tbrowder anyway, the error mentions strings can't be indexed, probably due to the left angle bracket immediately following the $a in the case above. i'll file a doc issue 13:12

Xliff Is there any way to get the implementing class from a method? 16:55
Especially if the method belongs to a role?
m: role A { method this-one { 1; }; }; class B does A { }; A.^lookup('this-one').package.^name.say 16:56
camelia A
Xliff I want a way that will report "B" 16:57
Especially if I can get the type object as opposed to the string.
Above example isn't quite true to form. 16:58
m: role A { method this-one { 1; }; }; class B does A { }; my &m = ('this-one'); &m.package.^name.say
camelia Type check failed in assignment to &m; expected Callable but got Str ("this-one")
in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1
Xliff m: role A { method this-one { 1; }; }; class B does A { }; my &m = A.^lookup('this-one'); &m.package.^name.say
camelia A
Xliff m: role A { method this-one { 1; }; }; class B does A { }; my &m = B.^lookup('this-one'); &m.package.^name.say 16:59
camelia A
Xliff I only have access to &m in my situation.
