The scary man...

Some interesting stuff:

I like the fact that hash's and arrays are going to use their own symbols
for stuff like slices, should make explaining things a lot easier in the
future!

Exegesis unimatrix-1:

   print Hello, World!\n

RFC28 hard at work here!

Great minds thinking in parallel there, Marcel.

My first draft of Ex2 started like this:

Here's the very first Perl 6 program ever written:

#! /usr/local/bin/perl6 --warnings

$*::OUT.push(q()/Hello, World!\X{newline}/.stringify());





Only joking!


But, given the sky-is-falling angst that fills perl6-language these days,
I felt the humour might not be universally appreciated.
