Hi all,

I would like to propose a challenge:

  Before next Wednesday's meeting:
   1. Choose a program from the Computer Language Benchmarks Game.
   2. Download the Perl 5 implementation.
   3. Write a Perl 6 version.
      (3.5. Build a recent Rakudo.)
   4. Run them and present your findings.

Optionally, first rewrite the Perl 5 version to be faster or more 
idiomatic.  Do it "more than one way" in Perl 5 and/or 6 for extra 
bonus points.

We'll spend 15-20 minutes at the beginning of the meeting reviewing the 
various entries.  It might help if you mail your entries to the list 
before the meeting starts.



Ready... Go!
