Simple Number Theory in Perl 6

Number theory is the basis for much of modern cryptography, but it is also provides many interesting small problems for programmers to solve. From one of the oldest algorithms to some new ones, we'll look at some ways to implement them in Perl 6 and how the language helps makes this easier for us. Some of the topics covered will be primality, prime generation, factoring, and RSA.
