What is Parrot?

Parrot is a virtual machine aimed at running Perl6 and other dynamic languages.

Parrot 0.3.1 changes and news
  • Variable sized register frames are finished. Each subroutine gets the amount of registers that it actually needs. No more spilling.
  • Vastly improved PGE (Parrot Grammar Engine) including shift-reduce, precedence-based expression parser and support for matching of bracketed text delimited by e.g. ()[]{}'"
  • unicode character classification (is_upper ...)
  • support for heredoc syntax in assembler
  • improved examples, basic JSON support
  • debian packaging support
  • the usual improvements, bug fixes, and cleanup
  • test count exceeds 3000
After some pause you can grab it from CPAN.

As parrot is still in steady development we recommend that you just get the latest and best from SVN by following the directions at source.html.

Have fun!

  • i really like these progress reports (as well for p5p), but what i really miss is ability to see, that we are closer to p6 every week.
    i read these reports for several years and i'm not sure for how many years to come.
    i'd like to see whats missing in p6 effort and whether we are getting closer to "1.0" release.

    anyway, thanks to all of you for effort you put in p6 and this summary!
