in thread Perl 6 ... dead?

Unfortunately, time, willingness and enthusiasm are not enough. Not only must you have these, and C skills, a hi-speed link that doesn't bill you by the minute, you must have a complete understanding of:

  1. CVS
  2. rsynch
  3. diff
  4. patch
  5. Configure
  6. (g)make
  7. yacc
  8. lexx
  9. gcc extensions to standard C.

Basically, being a fully paid-up unix system programmer is the base criteria.

And that's before you start trying to understand pir, pasm and pick your way through a directory structure that is twice the size it could be because it contains everything including a gob load of stuff that is completly irrelevant to the basic parrot code. Compilers for half a dozen, half completely irrelevant languages amongst other stuff.

And woe betide you if you mention that your trying to build parrot on a Win32 system.
