(Str) routine uniparse

sub    uniparse(Str:D $names  --> Str:D)
method uniparse(Str:D $names: --> Str:D)

Takes string with comma-separated Unicode names of characters and returns a string composed of those characters. Will fail if any of the characters' names are empty or not recognized. Whitespace around character names is ignored.

say "{uniparse 'TWO HEARTS'} Perl"# OUTPUT: «I 💕 Perl␤» 
'TWO HEARTS, BUTTERFLY'.uniparse.say# OUTPUT: «💕🦋␤» 

Note that unlike \c[...] construct available in string interpolation, uniparse does not accept decimal numerical values. Use chr routine to convert those:

say "\c[1337]"# OUTPUT: «Թ␤» 
say '1337'.chr# OUTPUT: «Թ␤» 

Note: before being standardized in 2017.12, this routine was known under its working name of parse-names, which will be removed in 6.e language.
