I am looking for a way to append multiple values to an @array. The documentation points out that there is a method called .append that would do that job. but when I am doing something like this:
my @array = <a b>; my @values = 1,2,3; @array.append: @values, 17;
I am getting a nested result:
[a b [1 2 3] 17]
You need to slip the array as Perl 6 doesn't auto-slip ("flatten"), except if it's the only iterable in an a argument.
@array.append: @values; # will slip the array as it's the only parameter @array.append: @values,17; # does not slip @values @array.append: |@values, 17; # will slip the @values into @array
|@values, you could also
