Solution

Note:

This solution was written on an old version of Exercism. The tests below might not correspond to the solution code, and the exercise may have changed since this code was written.

Determine if a sentence is a pangram. A pangram (Greek: παν γράμμα, pan gramma, "every letter") is a sentence using every letter of the alphabet at least once. The best known English pangram is:

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

The alphabet used consists of ASCII letters a to z, inclusive, and is case insensitive. Input will not contain non-ASCII symbols.

Resources

Remember to check out the Perl 6 documentation and resources pages for information, tips, and examples if you get stuck.

Running the tests

There is a test suite and module included with the exercise. The test suite (a file with the extension .t) will attempt to run routines from the module (a file with the extension .pm6). Add/modify routines in the module so that the tests will pass! You can view the test data by executing the command perl6 --doc *.t (* being the name of the test suite), and run the test suite for the exercise by executing the command prove6 . in the exercise directory.
