Book Description

Gain the skills to begin developing 6 applications from the ground up in this hands-on compact book, which includes a foreword from Larry Wall, creator of . You’ll learn enough to get started building with 6, using 6’s gradual typing, handy object orientation features, powerful parsing capabilities, and human-usable concurrency. After a short introduction, each chapter develops a small example , explaining the 6 features used. When the example is done, you’ll explore another aspect, such as optimizing further for readability or testing the code.

Along the way you’ll see Perl 6 basics, such as variables and scoping; subroutines; classes and objects; regexes; and code testing. When you’ve mastered the basics, Perl 6 Fundamentals moves onto more advanced topics to give you a deeper understanding of the language. You’ll learn, amongst other things, how to work with persistent storage, how to generate good error messages, and how to write tricky applications such as a file and directory usage and a Unicode tool.
