Note! This site is about Perl 6.
If you are looking for a solution for Perl 5, please check out the Perl 5 tutorial.
Numerical operator can be used on the scalar values.
my $x = 3;
my $y = 11;
my $z = $x + $y;
say $z; # 14
$z = $x * $y;
say $z; # 33
say $y / $x; # 3.66666666666667
$z = $y % $x; # (modulus)
say $z; # 2
$z += 14; # is the same as $z = $z + 14;
say $z; # 16
$z++; # is the same as $z = $z + 1;
$z--; # is the same as $z = $z - 1;
$z = 23 ** 2; # exponentiation
say $z; # 529
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.
