Given that Perl 6 won't support an actual do-while loop a la C++ (and
yes, I know that Perl5 didn't either), how would you accomplish that?
That is, I'd like to have a loop that runs once, then checks its
condition to see if it should repeat and continues to repeat as long
as the condition is true.

I don't think this works, but here's what I'm look for:

{
  $foo = readline;
  ...do stuff with $foo...
} while ( $foo );

--Dks
