I went to announce on #perl6 that I had Last of the Careless Men’s Vector class running on modern Rakudo (finally), and literally in the middle of typing the announcement there was a massive net spasm of some sort and I was kicked off the channel. Sigh.
Anyway, thanks to a timely patch from jnthn++ and a bit of rearranging things on my part, Vector.pm works again, or at least passes all the current tests in its 01-basic.t. I will try to get the rest of the code in that package working again in time for R*. The only major caveat at this point is that the
op= metaoperator does not work for the Vector-specific operators. Apparently this is because of a known bug.
