ideas and/or links here

  • Embed parrot in Inkscape (
  • Emit Bytecode from PAST/POST
  • TapTinder ( milestone M5 and others)
  • Adding something like as UNIX command (/usr/bin/ is free); let it be installed; Linux distribution packages could add it
  • Extend the documentation in "docs/b693714589ook/pct/ch05_nqp.pod" by adding some initial examples, show the use of grammar in NQP programs, may be some cross-references to the PCT-Tutorial could added
  • Examples to use different HLLs and to execute it as one program on top of Parrot. Calling a lua subroutine from Rakudo. How could the assembler- or byte-code from different HLLs be put together.
  • Implement the transformation from the Perl6 POD specification (Synopsis 26 - Documentation) to LaTeX, man pages or text as a language with PCT. (should be to difficult and take more then 2-3 month, may be it could divided)
  • Expand on parrot-instrument, build awesome tools on top of it, get it fully working again.
