```This is a place where .comb() is likely much better than .split() -- .comb()
allows you to specify what you're wanting instead of what you're wanting to
avoid:

\$ raku -e "say sqrt(2).comb(/\d/).join(', ');"
1, 4, 1, 4, 2, 1, 3, 5, 6, 2, 3, 7, 3, 0, 9, 5, 1

If you want only the first 10 digits, then:

\$ raku -e "say sqrt(2).comb(/\d/)[^10].join(', ');"
1, 4, 1, 4, 2, 1, 3, 5, 6, 2
