Ticket #1961 (new deprecation)
[DEPRECATED] X-to-Y native pbcs
|Reported by:||plobsing||Owned by:|
In the past, Parrot has voiced supported reading of PBC files created on, and optimized for other platforms.
In practice this usually only worked for PBC files created on x86-linux boxes.
This support will be removed in favour of a PBC format specifically designed for network transport and portability. Every Parrot, regardless of platform, shall be able to create and read PBC files in this format. Native-optimized PBC will still exist, but will not be readable on other platforms.
