This used to be my attempt at improving the Perl 6 highlighter over the builtin one for Atom. I have since lost almost all of my time for programming. Thankfully the Perl 6 community has taken it upon themselves to continue where I left off and make it an official project. Please use the official atom-language-perl6 highlighter going forward and not my own as this package is not maintained.
Derived from the builtin language-perl package but with many bugfixes and additions. You might ask why I didn't just add a PR there but I feel that this package adds quite a bit more that it might not be everyone's cup of tea.

This package will also soon contain support for many popular atom packages that have service hooks like autocomplete+ and linter I'd like to add a builtin REPL eventually
Here's a few more examples:
Good catch. Let us know what about this package looks wrong to you, and we'll investigate right away.
