parrot-handler requires an installed Perl version 5.10.0 or greater. It assumes it is being installed on a UNIX or UNIX-like system such as Linux or OS X, and that you have installed the tools you need to build Parrot. Later versions will be more flexible about operating system, but will always assume you have installed the tools you need to build Parrot.
Usage example (details may change without warning):
$ parrot-handler install supported Fetching http://www.parrot.org/release/supported Extracting supported parrot.2.9.1.tar.gz Configuring supported Building supported Testing supported Installing supported Done! Parrot supported is available to use. $ parrot-handler use supported Using supported (v2.9.1) as default parrot. $ which parrot /home/brian/.parrots/used/bin/parrot $ parrot-handler install from ~/Projects/parrot as alex Fetching ~/Projects/parrot Configuring alex Building alex Testing alex Installing alex Done! Parrot alex (v2.8.0) is available to use. $ parrot-handler list Available parrots: alex (v2.8.0) supported (v2.9.1)
To install this module, run the following commands:
$ perl Build.PL $ ./Build $ ./Build test $ ./Build install
The tests run by
Build test are mainly just about sanity checks - seeing whether parrot-handler thinks it
can do the things we claim it does. The full tests are not run by default, because they rely on external
factors such as your connection to the Internet or your build chain. It will take a while if you want to test
If you want to run every single test, have a little spare time, and your machine looks exactly like mine, you
can set the
TEST_EVERYTHING environment variable to 1.
$ TEST_EVERYTHING=1 ./Build test
There are also specific flags you can set within the test files themselves. See the
test_* subroutines in
the various test classes under
t/Test/App/Parrot/ for specifics.
After installing, you can find documentation for this module with the perldoc command.
