Yes, that's more or less a list comprehension syntax. To make it a bit more concrete, let's suppose you only want unequal chars; you could do it any of these ways in Perl 6:
my @filtered = grep { .[0] ne .[1] }, do [ $0, $1 ] while $s ~~ m:g[(. +)(.)]; my @filtered = do [ $0, $1 ] if $0 ne $1 while $s ~~ m:g[(.)(.)]; my @filtered = ([ $0, $1 ] if $0 ne $1 for $s.comb(/(.)(.)/)); my @filtered = map -> $a, $b {[ $a, $b ] if $a ne $b }, $s.comb;
We get list comprehensions more or less for free in Perl 6 because loops are basically just maps in disguise, and because we allow conditional modifiers inside of looping modifiers. That modifier nesting is something that Perl 5 could easily steal back from Perl 6, even if the loop doesn't automatically return its values.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
