Symbol::Scan - list types or classes currently in use
use Symbol::Scan; my @type_names = SymbolScan.list_core_type_names; my @type_objects = SymbolScan.list_core_type_objects;
The SymbolScan class provides a number of methods that list things currently defined for your perl6-- types or classes, either just for CORE:: or including the user defined ones, in the form of either objects or names (or pairs of both):
list_core_type_pairs list_all_type_pairs list_core_type_names list_core_type_objects list_all_type_names list_all_type_objects list_core_class_pairs list_all_class_pairs list_core_class_names list_core_class_objects list_all_class_names list_all_class_objects
These two act to filter a given sequence of pairs (they're primarily for internal use):
This module is essentially a repackaging of a solution by "smis", posted to stackoverflow:
Brandon Allerby offers an opinion as to why trapping errors from gratuitous *.gist calls can improve reliability:
This is needed for the Augment::Util recompose_core routine which in turn is needed to cover for a bug in using augment.
There are 12 main entry-point methods that cover all permutations of these three choices:
what we list: 'type', 'class' scope we search: 'core', 'all' form we report: 'objects', 'names', 'pairs',
A few more options might justify a different interface where you expicitly set options on the SymbolScan object.
