Subject pretty much says it all. Does perl6 support a LISP-like linked-list data type (i.e. a CONS cell)?
There are probably a couple of different aspects to what I mean by 'support'. For instance, CONS cells can be implemented in perl5 by using two-element arrays, but that's not very efficient. Also, it would be nice if all the list processing operators worked on CONS cells as well as on arrays, i.e. map, grep, etc.
All of the major scripting languages seemed to have overlooked this data type.
