From @geekosaur

[25 00​:11​:06] <ToddAndMargo> What is wrong with this one​:
`&​::($RunSpecific)();` No such symbol ''
[25 00​:11​:45] <ToddAndMargo> I don't see me using any single quotes
[25 00​:13​:23] <geekosaur> it's an empty string, with the single quotes part
of the error message to set off the symbol it's looking for?
[25 00​:15​:11] <geekosaur> hm, actually it says that for any not found
symbol, so that may be showing a bug
[25 00​:15​:57] <geekosaur> m​: my $RunSpecific = 'glup'; say
&​::($RunSpecific)();
[25 00​:15​:58] <camelia> rakudo-moar e9351cbaa​: OUTPUT​: «No such symbol ''␤
[25 00​:15​:58] in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1␤
[25 00​:15​:58] ␤
[25 00​:15​:58] »
[25 00​:15​:59] <geekosaur> m​: sub glup { 1 }; my $RunSpecific = 'glup'; say
&​::($RunSpecific)();
[25 00​:16​:00] <camelia> rakudo-moar e9351cbaa​: OUTPUT​: «1␤
[25 00​:16​:00] »
