Why not try crafting those and posting the attempts?

I'm not sure that answer makes sense here. If I was asking how to write something substantial, or even just something novel that requires a few lines of code, then it makes sense to ask me try things and post. But I'm just expressing a little curiosity about some rudimentary features of the language -- nearly trivial things to use as a reference point comparing how you'd do them in other languages. And also, making a thread about "Is this what an array looks like in Perl 6?" would probably not be of much general interest.

Yeah, I guess I could start poring over the Synopses and figuring them out. But at that point I'd have invested some substantial time when all I really had been curious about was what the Perl 6 rudiments looked like.

I guess I'm your typical "on the fence customer". If I can quickly see how easy things are easily done in Perl 6, then maybe I'll put in some time and give it a try. But at the moment, Perl 5 is working for me, and it's not easy to make free time, so I'll probably pass.
