Print thelist of the first ten prime numbers. In Task 27, Prime numbers, we’ve seen how to check if the given number is prime. To print the list of the first ten numbers, organize a lazy list.The code is quite compact and Perlish by nature: my @numbers = grep {.is-prime}, 1..*;say @numbers[^10]; The first line has to … Continue reading “📘 Printing a list of prime numbers using Perl 6”

Decide if the given number is a prime number. Prime numbers are those that can be divided only by 1, and by themselves. Perl 6 provides built-in support, using the is-primeroutine, for checking if the number is prime. There are two ways of using it. First, as a built-in function: say ‘Prime’ if is-prime(17); Second, as a … Continue reading “📘 Testing prime numbers using Perl 6”

Welcome to Day 17 of the Perl 6 One-Liner Advent Calendar! Today, we’ll have two one-liners, both generating some prime numbers. Part 1 First, let us solve Problem 7 of Project Euler, where you need to print the 10001st number (having the first being 2). Perl 6 is good at prime numbers, as it has … Continue reading “🎄 17/25.

This is article about programming. This solves Task 1 of the Perl Weekly Challenge 027. The so-called sexy prime pairs are pairs of prime numbers that differ by 6.

Find the prime factors of a given number. Prime factors are the prime numbers that divide the given integer number exactly. In Task 28, List of prime numbers, we’ve seen how to make a lazily evaluated list of prime numbers. This list is used in the program as a generator of the factor numbers for the … Continue reading “📘 Finding prime factors using Perl 6”

In this chapter, we will extend the Lingua language with aggregate data types: arrays and hashes. From this point, we will call variables that contain numbers and strings scalar variables.

The Int type is intended to host integer variables of arbitrary size. For example, no digit is lost in the following assignment: my Int $x = 12389147319583948275874801735817503285431532; say $x; A special syntax exists for defining integers with an other-than-10 base: say :16<D0CF11E0> Also, it is allowable to use the underscore character to separate digits … Continue reading “📘 Int type in Perl 6”

Today, the journey to the internals of Int continues and first let’s make a deep dive into one on of the fascinating methods, is-prime. If you never used it, this is a great method that implements the logic, which is usually not built-in in a programming language. It is also great because primality is an … Continue reading “🔬29.
