Thank you for trying!

FWIW, there's nothing special about Perl 6 source code: when you run a script, it's basically


or if you're more procedurally inclined

EVAL slurp ""

So the source code is handled exactly the same as any other source of text: assumed to be encoded in UTF-8 (by default) and thus normalized using synthetic graphemes if necessary. Also note that CRLF is such a synthetic grapheme

say "\r\n".chars; # 1
