That's the distinction, yes. The article mentions both in a way that makes me unsure if Perl 6 confused the terms (or maybe it's just the

But how would you "focus" on one or the other?
Is there any operation that works differently on graphemes than on grapheme clusters? Counting/skipping/extracting graphemes is the same as counting grapheme clusters, no?

Eg it says ".chars returns the number of characters (aka graphemes)"

Does this count the number of graphemes, or the number of grapheme clusters? Later on with \r\n it pretty much says that it counts grapheme clusters. Here it says it counts graphemes.
