Description (last modified by coke) (diff)

All the pmcs that are intended to be invoked should have a provides clause - perhaps callable or invokable or even just sub.

(This corresponds to the rough provides that already exist for string, array, hash, etc.)

I've added "provides invokable" to all PMCs except Object in r46700. Not sure should about Object semantic.

Please can we consider spelling it "invocable" rather than "invokable"?

(Traditional English spelling only requires /k/ when followed by /e/ or /i/; otherwise the root spelling /c/ is used, as in "invocation". This isn't a US-vs-England thing; all the "in print" dictionaries such as OED & Websters agree on this; only Wiktionary and Aspell include spellings with /-ka-/.)

Sigh... English is my forth language only...
