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.

examples/scalars/add.p6
#!/usr/bin/env perl6
use v6;

my $a = prompt "First number:";
my $b = prompt "Second number:";

my $c = $a + $b;

say "\nResult: $c";
