Perl 5.12 introduces an experimental mechanism for extension modules to hook into the Perl parser and define new syntax. This was inspired by the revolutionary hackery of Devel::Declare. This talk, by the author of the new mechanism, will explore its capabilities and current limitations, and explain how to develop syntax plugins. The talk will present novel techniques for getting the most out of the new facilities.
