"perl Configure.pl --parrot-config <path>" looks for parrot-nqp in /usr/local/bin #737
I have parrot-4.1.0 untarred and built. While pointing to parrot_config in this folder I would expect parrot-nqp to be picked up from here. However, Configure.pl seems to be looking for parrot-nqp in /usr/local/bin instead.
I'm embarrassed to tell you this, but here and (probably) in #736 as well, you've been a victim of outdated and/or incorrect documentation.
Unfortunately, there is no
(See Configure.pl and lib/Parrot/Configure/Options/Conf.pm.) This is the case notwithstanding documentation to that effect in tools/dev/create_language.pl, docs/pdds/pdd30_install.pod and tools/dev/all_hll_test.pl.
The outdated nature of the documentation in tools/dev/create_language.pl is demonstrated by the references to 'svn' -- the version control system we haven't used since approximately October 2010.
The Parrot team will be looking into these documentation errors. In the meantime, if you use IRC, I'd recommend you log on to #parrot on irc.perl.org and discuss your language creation objectives with Parrot developers on that channel.
Thank you very much.
