README

We are writing a book about Perl 6.

It will be some kind of example-driven introduction to Perl 6, and at
the same time showing off the reasons why we love that language.

We plan to have monthly releases, see docs/release-guide.pod

"We" are Carl Mäsak, Jonathan Worthington, Patrick Michaud, Moritz Lenz,
Jonathan Scott Duff (Scott) and anybody who's willing to work on it.
If you're not on that list yet, you're still very welcome to join us.

You can find us on #perl6book on irc.freenode.net.

To build the book, you need to have the following software installed:

    * GNU make
    * perl 5.10
    * the Perl 5 module Pod::PseudoPod::LaTeX version 1.101050 or newer
    * inkscape (for svg -> pdf conversion)
    * xelatex
    * the 'bera' font as a LaTeX package
    * the 'fancyvrb' package for LaTex
    * recent Pygments syntax highlighter (http://pygments.org)

      In Ubuntu 10.04 the last three bullet items are available from 
      the texlive-latex-base, texlive-fonts-extra, and 
      texlive-latex-recommended packages.

Just type 'make' on your command line, and the book should be built in
build/book.a4.pdf, with an A4 paper size; to get U.S. letter size, type
'make SIZE=letter'.
