I just spent a couple of hours playing around with (née ) and I've got to say, it's *really* cool.

It has a lot of features that remind me of in the best possible way.

For example, the APL expression


(which evaluates to 55)

can be written in Raku as


which is *almost* as concise, and *just* as powerful.

Any Raku/Perl6 fans out there? I'd love to hear if my first impressions match your experiences

@codesections I've written a wiki in Perl 6; I don't know how well the code would run on Raku. I haven't updated in a while.

@codesections I'm a big #rakulang fan, but I'm not familiar with doing anything in APL, sadly.
