=title Automatically convert string to number
As we can see - in this case - Perl 6 does not care that you typed
in a string, the numeric + adds together the two numbers.
my $a = prompt "First number:";
my $b = prompt "Second number:";
my $c = $a + $b;
say "\nResult: $c";
The Perl 6 Tricks and Treats newsletter has been around for a while.
If you are interested to get special notification when there is new content
on this site, it is the best way to keep track:
This is a newsletter temporarily running on my personal site (szabgab.com) using Mailman,
till I implement an alternative system in Perl 6.
