Book Description

You are reading a book about the Raku programming language. This language has appeared as a rename of Perl 6 in October 2019.

Like its parent, Perl 5, the Raku language keeps the spirit of being a powerful tool in many areas, from devops programs for configuration management through different command-line applications to concurrent web servers.

In this book, you will find a number of short programs that you may want to use in your daily practice. You will also find a number of one-line snippets that can enter into your bigger programs.

The goal of the book is not to give a copy-and-paste list of coding examples, but to explain the various bits of Raku that help to use the language more efficiently.
