Course of Raku / Essentials / Running programs

Using docker

A Rakudo Star docker image can be used for both running a REPL shell and executing a program from a file.

To start the shell, run the following command. It will pull the latest rakudo-star image if needed.

$ docker run -it rakudo-star

To run a program, use the following command:

$ docker run -v "$(pwd):/script" rakudo-star raku /script/hello.raku

Add the --rm flag if you want to clean up the container and remove the file system when the container exits. Find more instructions on the project page.
