Perl 6
Perl 6 Tutorial Part 1: Revision 5

Syntax Basics

Motivation for a new Tutorial

Perl 6 appears slowly before the wondering eyes of the curious, but if they grab Rakudo and the dokumentation (aka synopses) and try to write there first programs, they often don't get too far. The languages changes a bit every week and Rakudo nor Pugs know every command. The synopses aren't an easy read either. They are huge and contain a lot of nifty words. More written to clear edge cases to computer science students than to help the noobs to get a grasp. Therefore we would need a tutorial that introduces the reader slowly into the world of Perl 6 and prerequests as little knowledge as possible. Of course some basic Perl 5 wisdom is needed but everything else will be explained on the way. Every chapter of this tutorial is focused on one topic and containes many examples so you can start to play with the languages.

Denn Perl war immer darauf aus, dem erfahrenen
Codepoeten die Arbeit zu erleichtern und ist deswegen nicht an einem Tag vollständig
erlernbar. Auch darin ist Perl 6 eine Steigerung von Perl 5. Um diesem Kurs einen
größeren Nutzen zu entnehmen, empfehle ich es, beim Lesen die Beispiele,
oder eigene Abwandlungen davon, mit Pugs auszuprobieren. Pugs findet ihr auf oder über Hilfreich ist es auch, vorher den zweiteiligen
Perl 6-Artikel gelesen zu haben, der in den vorigen beiden Ausgaben abgedruckt war.
Dort wurde von der Entwicklung des Projektes und den linguistischen Konzepten der
Sprache berichtet.
