Nice to see more Perl 6 tasks[edit]

Glad to see another person entering Perl 6 tasks, hope you have the inclination to keep on doing so. If you do, a small request: When you add/edit a task, put a short summary of what you've done, even just 'added Perl 6', in the 'Summary' line. It helps people viewing the recent change get a sense of what languages are being worked on. Additionally, I get automated notifications based on that summary, which helps me keep my smoke-testing archive up-to-date. --SqrtNegInf (talk) 19:34, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

I'd like to add few other notes. Please be sure that you have permission to post third party code. You are attributing things nicely so not really a problem yet, but I'd like to keep it that way. Also, try to be sure that the code actually solves the task. Specifically, in the Send email task, the Perl 6 code generates an email, but doesn't actually have any mechanism to send it. Thanks! --Thundergnat (talk) 19:59, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

Also, it is much better to post examples that actually work. Median filter tries to use methods that aren't actually implemented yet. Speculatively they may be in the future, but they aren't at this point. --Thundergnat (talk) 13:30, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

Problems with 'Addition chains' task[edit]

Can you double-check that the 'Addition chains' task you posted is based on a correctly functioning local version? For starters, you have $num = $nbLimit, which is an assignment, not a test/comparison (should be $num <= $nbLimit). But with that fixed, it reveals that the routine 'findNonBrauer' is not working. I'd be happy to take a further look at this if you get stuck while debugging. --SqrtNegInf (talk) 15:32, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

Perl 6 treatment of '\r\n'[edit]

That pairing gets special treatment (handled as a "single grapheme") precisely because of it's role in line-termination. Here's one place that's documented: Perl 6 / Str data type --SqrtNegInf (talk) 00:28, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
