in reply to Environment for Perl6 Unicode

Gnome Terminal is certainly Unicode-aware. What you probably want to do to make it easier to type characters not on your keyboard is to set up a compose key. That is, you sacrifice one of your keys to be used to compose interesting characters. (Personally I use Caps Lock for this purpose, as I find I never use Caps Lock for typing capitals.)

Once you have a compose key set up, you just hit Compose, then "<", then "<", and you get "". Or hit Compose, then "a", then "^", and you get "". There are all kinds of useful characters you can type with a compose key.

package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name
