NAME

tools/dev/README.pod - Readme file for the Parrot Developer Tools directory.

DESCRIPTION

This directory is intended to hold programs, templates, and configuration files found useful to Parrot developers, excluding those which are (1) invoked via the default 'make' target ('make all') or (2) invoked by 'make install'.[1]

Parrot Developer Tools

Below, is a list of Parrot Developer Tools and a brief description of what they do:

dedeprecator.nqp

This utility scans your codebase for deprecated code and will warn you about it. For example, to find all deprecations in your PIR code, do the following:

    dedeprecator.nqp myproject/*.pir

It uses api.yaml by default, but can read alternate YAML configuration files:

    dedeprecator.nqp --apiyaml foo.yaml myproject/*.pir
show_deprecated.nqp

This utility nicely prints out all deprecations in api.yaml.

show_experimental.nqp

This utility nicely prints out all experimental stuff in api.yaml.

resolve_deprecated.nqp

Resolves deprecated features list in api.yaml by querying Trac.

NOTES

[1] These programs, templates, etc., occassionally require additional dependencies to function fully, such as CPAN modules or third-party programs, like 'valgrind'.
