reimplementation of BioPerl classes in Perl6
|lib||s/\.pm/\.pm6/ to distinguish these from p5|
|t||remove 'our method' syntax, which breaks JVM tests; Range.t passes|
|.gitignore||add .pir files|
|Makefile||switch Makerfile over to target .jar for JVM|
|README||a few updates to get tests working, sorta|
|README.FIRST||push latest to branch, will clean up after|
=BioPerl 6 (bioperl-experimental)= The experimental classes in this directory are test implementations for Perl 6. Most of these are similar to perl5-based BioPerl with simple Perl 6 translations. Hear thar be dragoons. =Notes on Perl 6= Perl 6 is a specification and thus can represent multiple implementations. We recommend strictly following the Perl6 spec, defined in a series of synopses: http://feather.perl6.nl/syn/ Note that much of the specification is still in flux or is unfinished; much of this is due to changes from experimenting with several preliminary Perl 6 implementations, such as Pugs or Rakudo (Perl 6 on Parrot), and parsing Perl 6 using Larry Wall's STD.pm grammar. Once the Perl 6 specification is considered complete, BioPerl 6 would then be expected to run on any Perl 6 implementation passing the official Perl 6 test suite. Until then, we will recommend the latest Parrot build from subversion along with the latest Rakudo checkout (currently packaged with Parrot but soon to be located in a separate repository). For the time being the code in this directory will be targeting Rakudo (always the latest build). = Testing = For now I'm using a simple makefile to build and cleanup *.pir files. So: make make test No install target just yet...
