That's not what `indir` does

What it does is change the current working directory inside of a block

    put $*CWD; # /home/brad
    indir "/tmp", {
        put "in directory $*CWD"; # /tmp
        .put for dir()
    put $*CWD; # /home/brad

Also this

    $ perl6 -e 'for dir() -> $x { my $y="$x"; say $y };'

can be simplified to any of:

    $ perl6 -e 'for dir() -> $x { say ~$x }'
    $ perl6 -e 'for dir() -> $x { put $x }'
    $ perl6 -e '.put for dir'
