Raku port of Perl's built-ins


    use P5built-ins;   # import all P5 built-in functions supported

    use P5built-ins <tie untie>;  # only import specific ones

    tie my @a, Foo;


This module provides an easy way to import a growing number of built-in functions of Perl in Raku Currently supported at:

    abs caller chdir chomp chop chr closedir cos crypt defined each endgrent
    endnetent endprotoent endpwent endservent exp fc fileno getgrent getgrgid
    getgrnam getlogin getnetbyaddr getnetbyname getnetent getpgrp getppid
    getpriority getprotobyname getprotobynumber getprotoent getpwent getpwnam
    getpwuid getservbyname getservbyport getservent gmtime hex index int lc
    lcfirst length localtime log oct opendir ord pack pop print printf push
    quotemeta rand readdir readlink ref reset reverse rewinddir rindex say
    seek seekdir setgrent setnetent setpriority setprotoent setpwent setservent
    shift sin sleep sqrt study substr telldir tie tied times uc ucfirst undef
    unpack unshift untie

The following file test operators are also available:

    -r -w -x -e -f -d -s -z -l

And the following terms:



Please look at the porting caveats of the underlying modules that actually provide the functionality:
