NAME ==== Raku port of Perl's __FILE__ and associated functionality SYNOPSIS ======== use P5__FILE__; # exports __FILE__, __LINE__, __PACKAGE__, __SUB__ DESCRIPTION =========== This module tries to mimic the behaviour of Perl's `__FILE__`, `__LINE__`, `__PACKAGE__` and `__SUB__` functionality as closely as possible in Raku. TERMS ===== __PACKAGE__ ----------- A special token that returns the name of the package in which it occurs. ### Raku $?PACKAGE.^name Because `$?PACKAGE` gives you the actual `Package` object (which can be used for introspection), you need to call the `.^name` method to get a string with the name of the package. __FILE__ -------- A special token that returns the name of the file in which it occurs. ### Raku $?FILE __LINE__ -------- A special token that compiles to the current line number. ### Raku $?LINE __SUB__ ------- A special token that returns a reference to the current subroutine, or "undef" outside of a subroutine. ### Raku &?ROUTINE Because `&?ROUTINE` gives you the actual `Routine` object (which can be used for introspection), you need to call the `.name` method to get a string with the name of the subroutine.
