Perl 5 implementation of the Perl 6 'form' built-in


Formats are Perl 5's mechanism for creating text templates with fixed-width fields. Those fields are then filled in using values from prespecified package variables.

Unlike Perl 5, Perl 6 doesn't have a C<format> keyword. Or the associated built-in formatting mechanism. Instead it has a module. And a C<form> function.

The Perl6::Form module implements virtually all of the functionality of the Perl 6 module.
