I'm still a bit scared off by Perl 6 and haven't yet done much investigation. What would thaw the ice quite a bit is if there were a website that catalogued example code for doing basic things like,
- opening a file, writing something to it, and closing it
- reading in the list of files in a given directory
- doing search/replace on a string
- sorting and uniq'ing a list of strings
- basics of using hashes
- reading user input from stdin
- writing a function
- writing a simple class
- accessing environment variables
My guess is that Perl 6 can do all sorts of amazing things, but I'd just like to see that it still makes easy things easy.
