I'm trying to build rakudo on a linux machine, the machine configuration isn't too great with just 512 MB of RAM and 2 Ghz processor. The problem is the build is simply too slow. And on reaching the following point, the system hangs.
../bin/parrot src/gen/perl6.pbc --target=pir src/gen/core.pm > src/gen/core.pir
I checked the src/gen/core.pm file its basically quite huge with and nearly 6000 lines long. Before this another command is run and core.pm gets generated using a large set of files.
I understand the system configuration isn't too great, but I build a lot of other open source software on it and they work. Please suggest a workaround for this problem, if its because the size of of core.pm then can't each file be processed individually and then aggregated into a pir. Else may be perl6.pbc is unable to handle large files, And thats not in a readable format ,And looks to be generated using another bunch of files. Has any body faced this issue before? What is the solution?
