on perl5 if someone want to parse binary file he has the pack/unpack utiltiy where he can convert binary structure to perl variables and vice verca ,
is there now a production equivlant for pack/unpack on perl6 ,as from the documentation i found that there are pack/unpack methods for Perl6 but they are experimental ,
does anyone know the status of those functions and if there are alternative to parse binary file which contains a list of records on perl6 ?
You are correct, the pack/unpack methods are experimental; there is currently no other method that is recommended in their place, however.
The experimental flag indicates that the Perl 6 dev team may change the interface. pack & unpack were marked in this way because there was not enough time to review and update the interface before the Christmas release in 2015-12.
