[rakudo] new perl6doc executable

Journal written by particle (3326) and posted by brian_d_foy on 2008.02.01 15:28   Printer-friendly
i want very much for rakudo to feel like perl, as soon as possible. therefore, i've been concentrating on adding command-line options and utilities that perl programmers expect. yesterday, i added a first approximation of 'perl6doc'.

view the patch here: http://perlsix.org/svn/parrot/revision/?rev=25389

it's far from complete. however, it should provide a start to folks interested in hacking the POD grammar. jeff horwitz would like to work on a pod2html mod_parrot handler. what would you like to see? we need your help.

you can create a perl6doc from a parrot working copy with the following commands, after compiling parrot:

    cd languages/perl6 && cd src/utils && make perl6doc
    # that's probably 'perl6doc.exe' if you're on windows

try running it on some of the files under languages/perl6. see what you find. ask questions. fix what's broken. get involved!
