  • Maybe I'm behind the times and this works, but lately it seems like enough of Perl 6 is there for me to mess around and have fun, except for one thing: I don't think I can do 'make install' and have it in my path, which leads to a few annoying patterns of behavior being required.

    I hope that whatever else you do, we end up with an installable Rakudo.

    Good luck!

    • I'm pretty sure that will be done, because we have a branch for that already.

      If you want to help us, check out rakudo, then run 'git checkout ins2', and follow the usual build instructions. Then tell us if that worked for you, and if you can run a simple Perl 6 program with it (perl6 -e 'say "Hello, world"' or so).

      (I checked that it works for me with an installed parrot, but I didn't try to install Rakudo itself)

      • ~/code/hub/rakudo/parrot$ cd ../parrot_install/
        ~/code/hub/rakudo/parrot_install$ ls
        bin/  include/  lib/  share/  src/
        ~/code/hub/rakudo/parrot_install$ ./bin/perl6 -e 'say "hello world"'
        hello world

        Works. I should look harder at how to have it install to /usr/local, but cool.

        • You'll be pleased to know that the ins2 branch has been merged into trunk, and that the August release of Rakudo can now be installed.
