Using Rakudo

To run a Perl 6 program with Rakudo, issue a command like: perl6 hello.p6. To enter an interactive mode where each line of code is evaluated as soon as you enter it, run perl6 without any arguments.

You can try out Rakudo Perl 6 without installing anything, using online code execution services like Glot.IO and TIO
