54 [*] What's the difference between the Rakudo compiler and the Rakudo
55 Star distribution?
56
57 The Rakudo compiler is a compiler for the Perl 6 language.
58 Nothing else.
59
60 The Rakudo Star distribution is the Rakudo compiler plus a selection
61 of useful Perl 6 modules, the most recent incarnation of the "Using
62 Perl 6" book, and other software that can be used with the Rakudo
63 compiler to enhance its utility. Rakudo Star is meant for early
64 adopters who wish to explore what's possible with Rakudo Perl 6 and
65 provide feedback on what works, what doesn't, and what else they
66 would like to see included in the distribution.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
