Package details

Summary: Implements the Perl 6 'form' built-in

Formats are Perl 5's mechanism for creating text templates with fixed-width

built-in formatting mechanism. Instead it has a module. And a
'form' function.

format (or "picture") strings, each of which is immediately followed by a
suitable set of replacement values. It interpolates those values into the
placeholders specified within each picture string, and returns the result:
