You need to have an old version of Rakudo installed (say, the 2010-01
release), and available in your path under the name 'alpha'.
+== Building Yapsi
+
+This assumes that you have a working installation of alpha somewhere in
+your $PATH. Yapsi currently works on top of alpha, an older branch of rakudo.
+If you have not built alpha yet, please build it by doing a git clone from
+<git://github.com/rakudo/rakudo.git> and "git checkout origin/alpha".
+
+To build Yapsi:
+ * type make in the directory where you've cloned Yapsi.
+ * copy the generated lib/Yapsi.pir to $PERL6LIB or ~/.perl6/lib folder.

+
+== Features currently available in Yapsi

Right now you can do things like this:
$ ./yapsi -e 'say 42'
