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.

[marto]: 5 is an Odd_number
[Corion]: That could fix itself within the next 24 hours :)
[marto]: we should blame LanX
[marto]: purely because he isn't here :P
[Eily]: marto oh ok, since normally it would have been 1, which is odd as well, I didn't think this was what you were refering to
[Eily]: what? Does that mean we can't blame LanX when he's there?
[marto]: but 5 in total, is odd, where as 10 is even
[marto]: sure, we can blame LanX when he is around, but he is more likely to moan about it :P
[Eily]: there's 6 in total though :P
[Eily]: unless LanX did something to maths when I wasn't looking
