in thread Yet Another Rosetta Code Problem (Perl, Ruby, Python, Haskell, ...)

I remember suggesting that it would be nice if Perl 6 would allow a scalar to be treated syntactically as a list of chars: $scalar3 = 'x'; etc. It would allow a single routine to be polymorphic to arbitrary lists and scalars and simplify the above, but I guess it wouldn't work for many other cases. And funny thing, ruby gives me idea on adding some for my handmade jewelry. lol
