Perl 6 Mode

License GPL 3 MELPA Status travis

Perl 6 mode lets you edit Perl 6 code with GNU Emacs 24.

This mode needs GNU Emacs 24.4.



Not planned


With use-package in your init file:

(use-package perl6-mode
  :ensure t
  :defer t)

Or in your Cask file:

(source melpa)

(depends-on "perl6-mode")

Or manually from MELPA with M-x package-refresh-contents and M-x package-install RET perl6-mode.


Just visit Perl 6 files.

The major mode will be autoloaded whenever a Perl 6 file is visited. This includes any file with perl6 in the shebang, as well as any file with a .p6, .pm6, or .pl6 extension. It also applies to any .pm, .pl, and .t files whose first line of code looks like Perl 6.

Use M-x customize-group RET perl6 to customize Perl 6 Mode.
