I thought it would be a good idea to take the benchmarks from the Debian
language shootout and port them to Perl 6. That would test several
aspects of the language and later in the future they could be useful
locate performance problems.
I have only done *one* benchmark so far. The regex-dna benchmarks. You
use regexes to analyze DNA code. Currently Rakudo is very slow at it,
but that's not surprising at this stage.
