Seems like the method display as written would actually print all the cells in one row -- method iterate doesn't have an explicit hook for "reached end of line". That's fine, since we have $.max available within the object.

I think method display should actually look like this:

method display { iterate { print $.grid[$^x][$^y] ?? '+' :: '.'; print "\n" if ($^x == $.max); # print each row on own line } print "\n"; # blank line follows grid print "Turn $(++$.count), press enter to continue" print " or ctl-c to quit"; <$*IN>; .calculate(); } # end method display

A separate style comment: wouldn't it be a bit cleaner to remove the .calculate(); line from method display and change the loop at the top so that it reads:

loop { $life.display(); $life.calculate(); }
Then there's no nasty surprise when someone does:
# somewhere far, far, away $life.display; `shell-script;clear`; # weird stuff on screen tty $life.display; # refresh terminal *only*
later. I recognize that's personal preference, but Side Effects Are Scary.
