[Purdue-pm] installing new Perl 6 instructions

I like the new Perl 6 language much better than Perl 5.
See https://perl6.org for some of the reasons why.
I installed the new Perl 6 using a normal Linux account by
downloading rakudo-star-2017.10.tar.gz from
cd sw (I already had a sw directory---short for "software")
tar xf ~/Downloads/rakudo-star-2017.10.tar.gz
perl Configure.pl --backend=moar --gen-moar
This put the perl6 executable in
for more information.
