Don't miss the next issue!

Hi there

This seemed to be a calm week, though Jonathan lit up my Perl 6 feed.

BTW I am looking for examples on how Jenkins is being used. If you have any examples you can share. e.g. you can send me your Jenkinsfile for private reading or you know about an open source project with an interesting Jenkinsfile, please let me know!

Enjoy your week!

How would you solve this very simple programming problem in Perl?

A set operation disguised as a list operation. OT asked for a solution. Interesting that some people immediately start talking about efficiency. Is it immature optimization or is it the right thing to consider?
