Read/write attributes and accessors

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

Setting the "rw" trait on the attribute will also generate a read-write accessor that is an lvalue so you assign to it.


use v6;

class Point {
    has $.x is rw;
    has $.y is rw;

my $a = => 23, y => 42);

say $a.x;   # 23

$a.x = 10;

say $a.x;   # 10
