Ask the user what's her name
When prompting the user with a question it is probably the best to use the prompt function.
Similarly to say it prints to the screen, but without the newline at the end.
Then it waits for the user to type in something.
It reads up to the ENTER the user presses, but passes over only the the part before the
newline. (Perl 5 users could think about it as having autochomp)
my $name = prompt("Please type in yourname: ");
say "Hello $name";
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.
