Assignment Operators

Note! This site is about Perl 6.
If you are looking for a solution for the current production version of Perl 5, please check out the Perl 5 tutorial.

We are used to the shortcut opertators from many languages. They change the value that would have not been changed by merely participating in an operation.


#!/usr/bin/env perl6
use v6;

my $num = 23;
say $num + 19;     # 42
say $num;          # 23

$num += 19;
say $num;          # 42
