  • Can it be installed under Windows at this point? If not, how about under Cygwin?

    • Certainly I've tested it on WinXP + MS VC++ and it seems to work fine. The release didn't quite work on MinGW if you wanted to compile with ICU, but we've had a patch submitted/applied to fix that since. Cygwin, I'm afraid I'm not sure about.

      Thanks,

      Jonathan

      • I apologize. I should have been more specific, though I just visited the "How to get Rakudo Perl 6" and got an answer to my question.

        I (like most Windows users) don't have a C compiler and have never been a C/C++/C# developer. I was a Perl/DB/Network developer for a long time and, since moving out of development, have continued using Perl to create tools and systems to help me in my work, which requires Windows. Oh well.

        • Ah, I see. fperrad++ does produce binary builds of each Parrot release and the Rakudo development release that matches up with it. You can find the Parrot build and the Rakudo add-on (two downloads, Parrot-1.5.0 and Parrot-1.5.0-Rakudo-20) at:

          http://sourceforge.net/projects/parrotwin32/files/

          Hope this helps,

          Jonathan
