| Speaking of string turning into numbers ...
| It's bothered me that I can write 100_000 in my perl code, but if I have
| a string "100_000" it'll evaluate to 100 when numerified. It would be
| really weird if "10indigo" became 10i, "1e3foobar" became 1000, and
| "10_000" became 10 in Perl 6 IMHO.
]- Agree if u want this in strings then use :
"$( 10i ) ndigo"
"$( 1e3 ) foobar"
