Is perl6 actually compiled then ran similar to java
or is the script ran and then compiled at run time?

It supports either, but defaults to single-step compile-run (like Perl 5).

I think that a transparent cache is envisioned for the future,
so that a compiled version is silently saved during the first compile- run, and future runs check the timestamps of the source and compiled versions,
skipping the compile if the source has not been updated.

Hope this helps,
Bruce Gray
