flamey has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm trying out Rakudo*, and when I "use LWP::Simple;" I get

"load_bytecode" couldn't find file 'MIME/Base64.pbc' in main program body at line 1:C:\Rakudo\lib\parrot\2.6.0\languages\ +perl6\lib/MIME/Base64.pm6

What's that?

WinXP & Vista, Rakudo*



C:\Rakudo\lib\parrot\2.6.0\languages\perl6\lib\MIME contains Base64.pir & Base64.pm6
There's no Base64.pbc anywhere in Rakudo installation folder

    Looks like Perl6-MIME-Base64 issue, which is pre-requisite for LWP::Simple. Is Rakudo* for Win32 includes wrong file?
