Note! This site is about Perl 6.
If you are looking for a solution for the current production version of Perl 5, please check out
the Perl 5 tutorial.
Perl 6 has a built in mode to slurp in files, that is to read
the contents of a whole file into a scalar variable.
my $filename = $*PROGRAM_NAME;
my $data = slurp $filename;
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.
