I fully expect that Raku will be as influential a language as Perl was before it.


JavaScript has a `"use strict"` mode, that was copied from Perl5.

PowerShell has a `$_` variable that was copied from Perl.

Every language that has a regular expression engine that it comes with has Perl to thank/blame.


Raku has a fair few neat ideas that it would be a shame if no one copied them into other languages.
