When was Raku released? Is there a Raku version 6.0.0? When was v6.d released? As a Raku user, what should I install? As an advanced user I want to track Rakudo development. Where can I find good documentation on Raku? Can I get some books about Raku? What is the Raku specification? Is there a glossary of Raku related terms? I'm a Perl programmer. Where is a list of differences between Perl and Raku? I'm a Ruby programmer looking for quickstart type docs? Modules Is there a repository of third party library modules for Raku? Is there a perldoc (command line documentation viewer) for Raku? Can I use Perl modules from Raku? Can I use C and C++ from Raku? Nativecall can't find and I only have! Where have all the traditional UNIX library functions gone? Does Rakudo have a core standard library? Is there something like B::Deparse/How can I get hold of the AST? What is precompilation? Can I have circular dependencies between modules? Common operations String: How can I parse and get a number from a string? String: How can I check if a string contains a substring and if so, how can I get indices of matches? String: How can I get the hexadecimal representation of a string? String: How can I remove from a string some characters by index? String: How can I split a string in equal parts? Language features How can I dump Raku data structures (like Perl Data::Dumper and similar)? How can I get command line history in the Raku prompt (REPL)? Why is the Rakudo compiler so apologetic? What is (Any)? What is so? What are those :D and :U things in signatures? What is the --> thing in the signature? How can I extract the values from a Junction? If Str is immutable, how does s/// work? If Int is immutable, how does $i++ work? What's up with array references and automatic dereferencing? Do I need the @ sigil? Why sigils? Couldn't you do without them? "Type Str does not support associative indexing." Does Raku have coroutines? What about yield? Why can't I initialize private attributes from the new method, and how can I fix this? How and why do say, put and print differ? What's the difference between token and rule ? What's the difference between die and fail? What's the difference between Pointer and OpaquePointer? You can have colonpairs in identifiers. What's the justification? How do most people enter unicode characters? Raku implementation What Raku implementations are available? What language is Rakudo written in? What language is NQP written in? Is Raku Lisp? Can I compile my script to a standalone executable? Raku distribution When will the next version of Rakudo Star be released? Metaquestions and advocacy Why was Raku originally called Perl 6? When will Raku be ready? Is it ready now? Why should I learn Raku? What's so great about it? Is Raku fast enough for me?
