Welcome to the Parrot Developer Wiki
This wiki is a workplace for developers of the Parrot virtual machine and related languages, tools, and applications. If you aren't a developer, you may be looking for the main Parrot website.
The current status and plan is available at the Parrot Roadmap.
If you have resources to contribute to Parrot this week, please ask on the mailing list or in the IRC channel if you need assistance. Our tasks are:
- HLL interoperability (talk to Tene and pmichaud)
- improving the Parrot debugger documentation (talk to dukeleto)
- working on Parrot standard library (talk to japhb)
- building a framework for testing bytecode
- pruning C structures (talk to chromatic)
Our weekly hackathon will take place Saturday, 03 October. Our focus is on the PCC branch.
Older content might be still in the old Parrot wiki, which is in the process of being [MigrateTheWiki migrated to this wiki].
