How to Start a Perl 6 module project: Revision 3

If you would like to start or work on Perl 6 module project, it's fairly easy to do, whether the module is stored without the pugs repository or not.

Preparations

Get familiar with util/prove6, the basic test tool to run tests with. Put a symbolic link to it somewhere in your path so it's convenient to run, if it's not already installed there:

  ln -s ~/pugs/util/prove6 ~/bin/

Typical usage in a module tree is:

  # one run test, assuming modules are in './lib'
  prove6 -lv t/test.t

  # run lots of tests
  prove6 -lv t/*.t

If your module depends on other Perl 6 modules, you'll need to be able make sure prove6 can find them. you can set PERL6LIB in the environment to the colon seperated paths that you need for one solution.
