Squawk

[ #5776 ]
Yes, I have built parrot on WinNT! Now to try on my Win2K system at home.

A couple of oddities, like the syntax for calling assemble.pl from the examples/assembly directory:

perl ..\..\assemble.pl -o queens.pbc queens.pasm  perl ..\..\assemble.pl queens.pasm > queens.pbc

parrot queens.pbc

The first assemble works OK, whereas the second form (recommended in the docs) doesn't work (parrot dies with

PackFile_Constant_clear: Unrecognized type '
' during unpack!
PackFile_unpack: Error reading constant table segment!
Parrot VM: Can't unpack packfile queens.pbc.

)

This caused me to tear my hair out at first. Interestingly enough, it doesn't happen with all files, (e.g. with stack.pasm no problem)
