( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
After a long forced break, I'm starting back up with Perl6 Rakudo.

I have stumbled into very minor character/grapheme issues as ASCII has fallen from its high station, but as a user not as a programmer. The occasional domino or html code has usually been understandable in context.

So I'm ill prepared to set up my Perl6 predominantly on Xterms and Gnome Terms 2.30.2 on i386 Debian 6 (squeeze), sometimes on virtual terminals, usually in Vim.

How do I set up my system so I can type&view those characters, like the one piece "<<"? For more context, my computer use follows a monolingual American pattern.

Be well,
rir

Perl6--less like line noise, but with extra crunchy characters.
