@samebchase What do you mean you like "desert island" programming languages and what makes Raku one of them?

@profoundlynerdy Meaning if you had to choose JUST ONE language if you were on a desert island. I feel languages like Common Lisp and Raku are multi-paradigm kitchen-sink-ey enough to cover a lot of PL-features.

Now, another programmer might ask for C so that they could bootstrap their programming infrastructure from first principles, but that requires serious skill, so I went with languages which have a laundry list of features and are flexible enough to not come in the way with their opinions
