$ ./perl6 -e 'say Real.new'
Like Numeric.new + 0 [perl #126112], there's a hang on a basically
“Real.new.Num" infiniloops because:
.Num calls .Bridge.Num
This is the ground cause of “say Real.new” infinilooping, because:
.gist calls .Str
Since I never understood the use of .Bridge in these parts of the setting, I’m hoping that someone else with some more background in this part of the code that is mostly from 2011/2012, and this predates my involvement.
Yary++ for reporting, BenGoldberg++ for following up.
