1D cellular automata in Perl 6

Spotted over in the Perl 6 Advent Calendar blog: Day 7 – Automatic on a Cellular Level:
It's primarily about 1D CAs, but mentions Conway Life and others. Hashlife and the OCTA metapixel get a shout-out, too.In today’s advent calendar post we’ll explore what you might call the simplest automatons. We’ll string the fields up like beads on a string, and we’ll try a neighborhood or two and a few different state sets.
To make things interesting for those at home, I’ll be giving you links that let you run example code right here in your browser, or at home with your local perl6 compiler!
