  • On Linux:

    > rpm -ql libicu-devel | ack libintl.h
    > locate libintl.h | xargs rpm -qf
    glibc-devel-2.9-2.12.1

    Interpretation: That header file does not belong to libicu, but to the C library instead. It feels strange to me that installing libicu fixed this dependency for you; can you explain that?

    • Thanks for the observation. The comment:

      That appears to be "libintl.h." perhaps it's related to the dependency on the ICU library mentioned at: http://rakudo.org/how-to-get-rakudo [rakudo.org]

      Was merely a wild stab in the dark, perhaps based on me assuming it might have something to do with unicode from a possible "intl" angle.

      So - explain - no. A wild guess rather than a result of analysis, and not a particulary good one by the sounds of your studies. At some point after that, I gave up on the windows binary distribution of parrot, and switched to compiling the sources - also changing the location of them to ensure the directory containing the source didn't contain spaces. After that, most of the errors and mistakes were just down to my distracted state, and messing up environment variables - which could have had a contributory effect to the earlier problems.

      Hope that explains things - I'm very sorry if you've wasted time as a result of my notes...
