Perk moved to github

[ #38455 ]

Today I moved Perk (a Java compiler targeting Parrot) to github. I do not intend to maintain the SVN repository at googlecode. Sorry for the churn, but better now than later...

I am working on converting the to be real Perl 6 instead of NQP. I submitted a prerequisite patch to Rakudo to support that (implement the 'make' builtin). But I'm getting mysterious runtime failures with basic PIR.

If you want to try Perl 6, just edit one line of the Perk Makefile to change "ACTION_COMPILER=nqp.pbc" to "ACTION_COMPILER=perl6.pbc".

Once I get that to work, I'll probably port perk.pir to Then we'll see about implementing more of the actions.
