Binary Parsing in Perl 6

When parsing things like binary file format headers, you generally need to know three things for each data field:

  • how many, and what kind of, bytes to gobble
    (e.g. input stream --> Buf:0x<0b 00>)
  • how to unpack those bytes into a number, or other low-level type
    (e.g. Buf:0x<0b 00> --> 11)
  • how to transform that number into meaningful data

Variables/containers/objects in Perl vs Perl 6

## Storing three integers in a variable in Perl 5 ##
my $a = [2, 4, 6]; # a scalar variable aliased to a reference to an ARRAY object containing three SCALAR objects
my @a = (2, 4, 6); # an array variable aliased to an ARRAY object containing three SCALAR objects
## Storing three integers in a variable in Perl 6 ##
my $a = (2, 4, 6); # an item variable bound to a Scalar object containing one Parcel object containing three Int objects
my $a = list 2, 4, 6; # an item variable bound to a Scalar object containing one List object containing three Int objects
You can’t perform that action at this time.
