WITCH: Revision 8
What Is This Character Here?
This is (to become) mostly a bunch of hyperlinks that allows one to find operators, special variables and other documentation based on a single "mystery character" whose usage is unclear. Start by clicking on the character you do not understand the usage of. You will be brought to a page that tells how the character is used and/or can point you to compound operators containing the character.
If a character is not linked/there, feel free to help flesh this resource out (and of course to add to the linked pages as well.) Keep in mind the objective here is to link to other existing documentation (within the Wiki if possible) not to actually write documentation for operators -- though mnemonics do count as "mental hyperlinks."
In addition to a handy way to find out what an operator does, it also helps show how Perl 6 tries to allocate characters to uses that have similar or related semantics, by collecting a list of the various uses of a character in one place. Feel free to document the Perl 5 uses of characters, and perhaps even character uses from other languages, so the index can also be used in a "how do i?" fashion. Just set them apart clearly.
I'll be pecking away at this as I learn more Perl 6 myself, at a leisurely pace. Early vistors lurking the changes page before I link this to a parent, please give me a day or so to put in a few sample entries and some templates for starting a new page -- BS
