Perl 6 Mode
Perl 6 mode lets you edit Perl 6 code with GNU Emacs 24.
This mode needs GNU Emacs 24.4.

- ETags support
find-file-at-pointfor module names
- Electricity (
electric-pair-modeneeds some context-sensitive help)
- Unicode character map
- Syntax checking (use flycheck-perl6)
use-package in your init file:
(use-package perl6-mode :ensure t :defer t)
Or in your
(source melpa) (depends-on "perl6-mode")
Or manually from MELPA with M-x package-refresh-contents and M-x package-install RET perl6-mode.
Just visit Perl 6 files.
The major mode will be autoloaded whenever a Perl 6 file is visited.
This includes any file with
perl6 in the shebang, as well as any file
.pl6 extension. It also applies to any
.t files whose first line of code looks like Perl 6.
Use M-x customize-group RET perl6 to customize Perl 6 Mode.
Pull requests are welcome.
