perl6 on Parrot: Revision 2
The Perl 6 Compiler for Parrot is called "perl6", and it currently
lives in the languages/perl6/ directory of the Parrot repository.
To build the perl6 compiler, first "get a working copy of Parrot"<http://www.parrotcode.org/source.html>,
then change to the languages/perl6/ subdirectory and type "make".
This will build the compiler into a file called "perl6.pbc".
The ".pbc" stands for "Parrot bytecode", and represents an
an executable Parrot module.
To run a program with perl6, one then issues a command like
$ parrot perl6.pbc hello.pl
Parrot does not yet support a #! syntax that allows us to run
Perl 6 scripts directly from the command line, but that will
undoubtedly be coming soon.
