Hi,
｢gather｣ should work. What version of Perl 6 are you using? (run perl6 -v)

## Advertising

I may be wrong, but I think the code should be:
my \golden = (1 + sqrt 5) ÷ 2;
my \fib = 1, 1, * + * ... ∞ ;
my \approx = gather for fib.rotor(2 => -1) { take .[1] ÷ .[0] };
my \distances = approx.map: (golden - *).abs;
say distances[^1000];
