make perl6 works now with pugs (with php bonus included)

perl6 is now self hosted in the next parrot release 0.5.2


Now you check out the parrot vm from svn and test the perl6 vm/compiler


here is the quote from the NEWS file



New in 0.5.2


- "make perl6" now builds a Perl 6 executable


Here is the howto


1.check out the code


svn co https://svn.perl.org/parrot/trunk parrot


2.run the Configure script


cd parrot


perl Configure.pl --prefix=/opt/parrot


3. Make the perl6


make perl6


.... [skip the compile lines]...


languages/perl6/perl6 -e'say "Hello, world!"'


Hello, world!


4 Make perl6 to be executable file and then run the hello world again :)


chmod +x perl6


./perl6 -e'say "Hello, world!"'


5. create an file goodbyeworld.pl with this content


vim goodbyeworld.pl


say "Hello, world!"


./perl6 godbyeworld.pl


All you need to do now is to test the new mod_parrot apache module or the .... php compiler for perl6!!!


cd languages/plumhead


make ; make test


go to the parrot root source directory


cd ../../


./parrot languages/plumhead/plumhead.pbc languages/plumhead/t/hello_1.php


Hello, World!
