Perl 6
Using Perl 5 Embedding: Revision 7
Currently, Perl 5 embedding is enabled by default in Pugs. This allows to you use some Perl 5 modules from Perl 6. Here's a basic example:

use perl5:CGI;
my $q ='a=Hello');
say $q.param('a');

Using "{}" for a hash reference also works:

use perl5:CGI;
my $q = { a => "Hello" } );
say $q.param('a');

Notice that add the prefix `perl5` when "using" the module, but otherwise use normal Perl 6 object notation. In that example were just passing the string 'a=Hello' to Perl 5. Sometimes additional effort is needed to successfully pass a more complex data structure from Perl 6 to Perl 5.

However, if you want to pass anything more than strings between Perl 6 and Perl 5, you may soon run into trouble. For example, Perl 6 does not allow named arguments to start with a dash but Perl 5 does. The general tool here will be to find a way to to apply eval('some code',:lang<perl5>), so that it returns some Perl 5 code at the appropriate spot.

Here's an example of using it to pass a named argument starting with a dash:

use perl5:CGI;
my $q =;
my $cookie = $q.cookie( %( '-name' => 'Hello', value => 'World' ).kv );
print $cookie;

^^ Importing from Perl 5

Currently explict imports work, but implicit ones to not. This works:

use perl5:Time::gmtime <gmtime>;
say gmtime.mday;

^^ Examples

* ""<> is a Perl 6 program that uses several Perl 5 modules
* "t/perl5"<> is the code in the test suite that tests Perl 5 embedding
