These are the Perl Tablets, written in Pandoc-Markdown.
They are available online at http://tablets.perl6.org.
How to Help
Just start reading and report issues if your not sure.
Please pore over Appendix B taking note of the various links to the main Index (Appendix A). When you see a Perl 6 term without a link, find its corresponding anchor in the Index, then (in Appendix B) create a link to it.
Several it terms in the glossary (Appendix G) are still unexplained.
The Tablet 1: History needs a lot of help, especially information from people who were involved in the subprojects.
Rules for Anchor Names
- Index A has following rules:
- Anchors are case sensitive, if the term is "BEGIN", the anchor is also "BEGIN".
- Parts of the anchor name are divided by a minus ("-").
- None alphanumeric chars are descibed as lowercase name.
- But use for that only one word, "=" is "equal" not "equal sign".
- "==" is equal-equal, "===" is "equal-equal-equal"
- A secondary anchor can dexribe the name of an operator.
- Index G has following rules:
- Anchor uses always the abbreviation, acronym or short form.
- Acronyms are uppercase rest is always lower case.
Format Rules for Index A
