100 Programming Challenges Solved with the Brand-New Raku Programming Language

About the Book

In this book, you will find 100 solutions of different common programming challenges that are written in Raku. Once you already know some of the basics of the language, it is a good idea to spend some time trying to do some exercises and the most popular tasks, which will vary from displaying the ‘Hello, World!’ greeting, to creating a parser for the command-line calculator.

The seven chapters are divided into two parts, which cover the essential parts of the language; firstly, the strings, numbers, and aggregate data structures, and secondly, of Raku in particular, namely, the new regexes, grammars, and parallel computing.

Each of the 100 tasks presented in the book demonstrates the main idea of how to approach a problem; big chunks of code are avoided, as much as possible.
