Panda is an implementation of a Perl 6 module manager specification.
Pies is a module management solution for Perl 6. Pies itself is a specification (like masak's Pls, and cannot install anything itself. The project ships two implementations: ufobuilder, being an extremely simple example implementation of Pies, and Panda, being the actual module manager to use.
To install Panda along with all its dependencies, simply run the script bootstrap.sh in the root of the panda git repo. You must have a perl6 binary in your $PATH for bootstrap.sh to work correctly.
This works good in *NIX environment. However, some problems exist with installation in Windows environment at the moment.
git clone git://github.com/tadzik/panda.git cd panda sh ./bootstrap.sh
One way to run the test suite is with prove from TAP::Harness
prove -e perl6 -lrv t/
Panda can be used like:
panda install Acme::Meow
Note that ~/.perl6/bin has to be in your $PATH for you to be able to use panda from the command line.
If you use bash, you can accomplish this with
echo 'export PATH=$PATH:~/.perl6/bin' >> ~/.bashrc source ~/.bashrc
