While Raku is generally slower than other languages, there are times when it is is faster than those same languages.

There was even one report of it being faster than C/C++.

(My guess is that the C/C++ code was doing a lot of string copies and/or scanning for a null terminator. The MoarVM backend doesn't generally do either of those things.)
