but when you follow a how-to which tells you commands to run in the 
terminal leaded by the user you don't do program in Raku

a) the typical user don't program at all
b) i expect from programmers some sense for context
c) # is typcally a comment
d) $ leads a variable in PHP, but we don't talk about PHP
e) the typical user won't remember what # and $ means

however, in the real world just write "sudo command" is the best you can 
do - for the average user it's complete and leaves no questions

for power users which don't like sudo it should be no deal-breaker to 
type the command without "sudo" in a root shell

case closed
