How to Help

One way to contribute is to pore over Appendix B taking note of the various links to the main Index (Appendix A). When you see a Perl 6 term in Appendix B without a link, find its corresponding anchor in the Index, then (in Appendix B) create a link to it.

Rules for Anchor Names

  • 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 double-equal, "===" is "triple-equal"
  • A secondary anchor can dexribe the name of an operator.

Format Rules for Index A

  • Perl 6 builtins are bold (**...**)
  • terms and Perl 5 builtins are italic (*...*)
  • code snipptes are in (`...`)
  • between item name, its explanation and additional infos is an — (&mdash\;)

Generating the html

After updating any .txt files, to regenerate the corresponding html files, run ./ in the docs directory.

Publishing the Tablets

scp the docs/*.html files and the styles.css file to the web.
