There is a "Perl 6 One-Liners" presentation by Andrew Shitov
on the web at
I recommend it.  My advice---puzzle out the easy stuff, if something
looks hard skip it until you have more experience with Perl 6.

William F. Buckley Jr. knew lots of English words and could use the most
appropriate tool (word) for a task.  He wasn't afraid to use sharp tools
among not-so-sharp company.  Perl 6 has many more tools than Perl 5 and
is joy to use.  The new operators are arranged into groups that make
sense and can be combined in---in my opinion---natural ways.  I urge you
to learn the new vocabulary but not abuse it by trying to be too clever.
Programming involves typing and thinking, Perl 6 allows me to do less of
each.  I well-written Perl 6 programs much easier to read than Perl 5.
