Implements the Perl 6 ‘gather/take’ control structure in Perl 5
Perl 6 provides a new control structure – gather – that allows lists to be constructed procedurally, without the need for a temporary variable. Within the block/closure controlled by a gather any call to take pushes that call’s argument list to an implicitly created array. take returns the number of elements it took. SyntaxKeywordGather implements that control structure.
