Yes, Raku has a Rat type which stores (and normalizes) numerator and denominator. Legend has it they only did that so they can have a .nude method (which returns a Pair).

    I find it confusing that a bareword of 1.15 can be assigned exactly as the rational 115/100 rather than as the approximated double.
    But I guess that one would adapt quickly enough to the change of mindset, if one had to.

    Cheers,
