Perl 6
perl6 tasks: Revision 4

This page is just a scratchpad of key tasks that are high priority for the perl6 on Parrot compiler.

  • simplified command line interface: Currently the most frequently asked question (by far) about perl6 is "how can I just get an executable that I can use to run Perl 6 programs?" At present this isn't possible, the best we can offer is "/path/to/parrot/parrot /path/to/parrot/languages/perl6/perl6.pbc hello.pl", which is a pain. So, we need a way to package this up into a simple shell script, executable, or other item that can be placed in a PATH and executed directly. Some ideas:
    • a perl6 or perl6.bat shell script
    • add some smarts to Parrot to allow it to find .pbc files (RT#47992)
    • convert perl6.pbc to a C executable
  • begin refactoring test suite
  • document/explain the perl6 architecture, and how the Parrot compiler tools work
