+# Using
Once built, Plumage is relatively easy to use, especially if you've used
another install tool such as apt-get or yum. For example, to install
Rakudo (a Perl 6 implementation), run the following command:
- $ ./plumage install rakudo
+ ./plumage install rakudo
This will automatically install any dependencies that Rakudo may need.
To see what those dependencies are, try this:
- $ ./plumage showdeps rakudo
+ ./plumage showdeps rakudo
To see what other commands and options are available, ask for usage info:
- $ ./plumage usage
+ ./plumage usage
If you have any problems, just come by #parrot at and ask.
We're happy to help!
