Routines supplied by class Uni

NFD inherits from class Uni, which provides the following routines:

(Uni) method new

method new(*@codes --> Uni:D)

Creates a new Uni instance from the given codepoint numbers.

(Uni) method NFC

method NFC(Uni:D: --> NFC:D)

Returns a NFC (Normal Form Composed)-converted version of the invocant.

(Uni) method NFD

method NFD(Uni:D: --> NFD:D)

Returns a NFD (Normal Form Decomposed)-converted version of the invocant.

(Uni) method NFKC

method NFKC(Uni:D: --> NFKC:D)

Returns a NFKC (Normal Form Compatibility Composed)-converted version of the invocant.

(Uni) method NFKD

method NFKD(Uni:D: --> NFKD:D)

Returns a NFKD (Normal Form Compatibility Decomposed)-converted version of the invocant.

(Uni) method codes

method codes(Uni:D: --> Int:D)

Returns the number of codepoints in the invocant.

(Uni) method elems

method elems(Uni:D: --> Int:D)

Returns the number of codepoints in the invocant.

Routines supplied by role Positional

NFD inherits from class Uni, which does role Positional, which provides the following routines:

(Positional) method of

method of()

Returns the type constraint for elements of the positional container. Defaults to Mu.

(Positional) method elems

method elems()

Should return the number of available elements in the instantiated object.

(Positional) method AT-POS

method AT-POS(\position)

Should return the value / container at the given position.

(Positional) method EXISTS-POS

method EXISTS-POS(\position)

Should return a Bool indicating whether the given position actually has a value.

(Positional) method STORE

method STORE(\values:$initialize)

This method should only be supplied if you want to support the:

    my @a is Foo = 1,2,3;

syntax for binding your implementation of the Positional role.

Should accept the values to (re-)initialize the object with. The optional named parameter will contain a True value when the method is called on the object for the first time. Should return the invocant.
