Official Mirror:
Formats are Perl 5's mechanism for creating text templates with fixed-width fields. Those fields are then filled in using values from prespecified package variables. Unlike Perl 5, Perl 6 doesn't have a 'format' keyword. Or the associated built-in formatting mechanism. Instead it has a module. And a 'form' function. Like a Perl 5 'format' statement, the 'form' function takes a series of 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:
