  • Let me jump on this bandwagon and ask you to use Padre [perlide.org] for writing Perl 6 code.

    As of version 0.22 Padre [cpan.org] supports Perl 6 syntax highlighting [szabgab.com] via its Perl 6 plugin [cpan.org] and execution on Rakudo via the Parrot plugin [cpan.org].

    Using this you will almost directly use the STD.pm for syntax highlighting, which is just the definition of Perl 6.

    Obviously if you encounter issues with that you are welcome to the #padre IRC channel to discuss it.

  • There was a lot of good Perl 6 examples, programs, modules (with test suites even), etc in the Pugs project. I suspect they would require some amount of cleaning up, but most of the work would already have been done.

      Aye. If I understand correctly, the aim of Perl 6 Examples [github.com] is to salvage scripts from the Pugs repo, and cleaning them up to work either with general Perl 6, or specifically with Rakudo.

  • I'm currently working on a Hangman program in Rakudo. It mostly works, but the latest builds of Parrot broke on my Mac. Seems I needed a fresh checkout and all is good. Maybe I'll be able to post it soon.
