doing maths with my kid, i just translated his spreadsheet with those
lines of haskell:
rebonds height loss = height : rebonds (height - height * loss) loss
main = print $ takeWhile (> 2) $ rebonds 116 0.6
then i wanted to make it as short as possible in perl6, i'm almost
(116, * * .6 ... * < 2 ).say
but the first $_ < 2 remains in the list. the only one alternative i see
is a gather/take loop but i really expect something shorter from perl6
any idea ?
