Running from command line
Save the text of the program in a text file, for example,
hello.raku and pass the path to the file to the command-line tool
raku (the dollar character indicates shell’s prompt):
$ raku hello.raku
If the program does not contain errors, it will be immediately executed, and if it generates any output, you will see the result in the terminal:
$ raku hello.raku Hello, World!
When working with Unix-based systems, you can add a shebang and make the file executable:
#!/usr/bin/env raku say 'Hello, World!';
The next steps are the following:
$ chmod a+x hello.raku $ ./hello.raku Hello, World!
