in thread In base 1, the number after 0 is:

You're not alone in having the idea of zero not being a number, but merely a digit. Many great mathematicians and philosophers have shared this idea.

However, they've mostly been dead for centuries. Since the 17th century, the idea that zero is a number has been fairly uncontroversial in mathematical circles.

If you want something that is not a number but kinda like a number, I can offer you ∞. And really, you can't ask for more than that, can you?

use Moops; class Cow :rw { has name => (default => 'Ermintrude') }; say Cow->new->name
