Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Rebuilding Parrot

[ #38290 ]

I've gotten tired of rebuilding parrot only to find out, once again, that I've broken it with local changes. Thus, my 'reparrot' script:


cd ~/code/parrot
make realclean
svn up
if svn status | grep -E "^(M|C)"
    echo Local changes found.  Aborting.
perl && make test;
cd languages/perl6/ && make perl6 && make spectest

This should save me a lot of grief.

  • Other than the ability to barf on local changes, this is a subset of the already existing languages/perl6/tools/ . Would you mind merging your idea into that script, for example by adding a new option?

    • Ahh! I should check out this directory. Thanks for the tip.

      I'll be on holiday for the next couple of weeks, though, and won't have much free time for this (entertaining a friend from the States).
