in reply to Why doesn't Perl 6 have -V ?

Try $ perl6 --version

docs/running.pod for a list of available options.

We know that Rakudo's command line parsing isn't great yet, particle worked on it for a while, but got distracted by real-life things :(

Perl 6 - links to (nearly) everything that is Perl 6.

    --version gives even less detail than "-v"!
      And just to confuse you further:
      parrot -V
      (uppercase) gives the version, but:
      parrot -v
      (lowercase) turns on verbose mode. Before you try, -Vv does not appear to do anything special.
