Write to a file

Note! This site is about Perl 6.
If you are looking for a solution for Perl 5, please check out the Perl 5 tutorial.

In order to write to a file first we need to open the file for writing with the :w mode. If this is successful we get back a file handler on which we can use the regular output methods such as print(), say() or printf().


#!/usr/bin/env perl6
use v6;

my $filename = "temp.txt";

my $fh = open $filename, :w;
$fh.say("hello world");
