Description

Track new experimental parrot runtime library module.

Change History

Changed 4 years ago by fperrad

  • summary changed from Archive::Tar in parrot library to Archive::Tar & Archive::Zip in parrot library

Changed 3 years ago by jkeenan

  • cc jkeenan added
  • component changed from none to library

Are these modules still considered experimental?

If they are, that fact is not mentioned in their POD.

$ perldoc runtime/parrot/library/Archive/Tar.pir | grep -i experiment
$ perldoc runtime/parrot/library/Archive/Zip.pir | grep -i experiment

If they're no longer experimental, can we close this ticket?

Thank you very much.

They're still listed in api.yaml

If we don't need them in core, I'd recommend pushing them out into a library.

These libraries are used by distutils tools.

I want to see both of these better documented before we call them non-experimental.

Changed 3 years ago by fperrad

documentation was added by  https://github.com/parrot/parrot/commit/8cc26e4a562cd565a4da9596d716fd981275a813

Archive/Zip is broken and no longer used by distutils.

So, I propose

  1. Archive/Tar will no longer experimental
  2. Archive/Zip will destroyed (and TT#2171 TT#2172 closed)
Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
