Parrot Babysteps Sample Code

This is the sample code for my Parrot Babysteps tutorial. I'm putting it into a repository so that it will be easier for you to follow along, and harder for me to lose these files.

Mostly so I don't lose these files.

What's in here?

  • A lot of simple Parrot PIR code.
  • hygxyz.csv: A catalog of stellar data from the Astronomy Nexus.
  • Some tests to make sure the examples stay sane.

What can I do with this?

Pretty much anything you want. The code is public domain. Feel free to extract whatever value you can from it. If you want to do something special with the star catalog, you may want to double-check with the Astronomy Nexus site maintainer. He's pretty casual about usage, though.

With Perl installed, you can prove the examples work yourself:

$ prove -Ilib


$ make test

Note that I use Modern::Perl and IPC::Run in my code, so that's a dependency for the tests.

$ sudo cpan Modern::Perl
$ sudo cpan IPC::Run

I have questions!

Don't we all? You can find details about contacting me at my page.
