    Hi Yuki,

    We're trying very hard to avoid overloading the meaning of existing Perl features, so we deliberately didn't go with the word package. The package keyword simply declares something as being in a given namespace. The class keyword in Corinna does the same thing, but it's a historical accident in Perl that classes and packages are sort of the same thing.

    In reality, a class is a data type, not a namespace. They're fundamentally different. While I don't know if it can be fixed, in the long-term, I would love to see the…

  • Better performance for most method calls
  • Compile-time checking for at least one common type of error
  • Built right into the language, so no need to rely on external modules …
