Build Status

NAME

P5built-ins - Implement Perl 5's built-in functions

SYNOPSIS

use P5built-ins;   # import all P5 built-in functions supported

use P5built-ins <tie untie>;  # only import specific ones

tie my @a, Foo;

DESCRIPTION

This module provides an easy way to import a growing number of built-in functions of Perl 5 in Perl 6. Currently supported at:

abs caller chdir chomp chop chr closedir cos crypt defined each endgrent
endnetent endprotoent endpwent endservent exp fc fileno getgrent getgrgid
getgrnam getlogin getnetbyaddr getnetbyname getnetent getpgrp getppid
getpriority getprotobyname getprotobynumber getprotoent getpwent getpwnam
getpwuid getservbyname getservbyport getservent gmtime hex index int lc
lcfirst length localtime log oct opendir ord pack pop print printf push
quotemeta rand readdir readlink ref reset reverse rewinddir rindex say
seek seekdir setgrent setnetent setpriority setprotoent setpwent setservent
shift sin sleep sqrt study substr telldir tie tied times uc ucfirst undef
unpack unshift untie

The following file test operators are also available:

-r -w -x -e -f -d -s -z -l

And the following terms:

__FILE__ __LINE__ __PACKAGE__ __SUB__ SEEK_CUR SEEK_END SEEK_SET
STDERR STDIN STDOUT

PORTING CAVEATS

Please look at the porting caveats of the underlying modules that actually provide the functionality:

P5chdir       | chdir
P5defined     | defined undef
P5each        | each
P5fileno      | fileno
P5getpriority | getpriority setpriority getppid getpgrp
P5length      | length
P5localtime   | localtime gmtime
P5math        | abs cos crypt exp int log rand sin sqrt
P5opendir     | opendir readdir telldir seekdir rewinddir closedir
P5pack        | pack unpack
P5print       | print printf say
P5readlink    | readlink
P5ref         | ref
P5reset       | reset
P5reverse     | reverse
P5study       | study
P5tie         | tie, tied, untie
P5times       | times
