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 are developing (or thinking of developing) a high-level language on top of Parrot, the HLL Resources page is for you.
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:
- HLLInteroperability (talk to Tene and pmichaud)
- improving the Parrot debugger documentation (talk to dukeleto)
- RTEMS port (dukeleto)
- Converting the test suite from Perl 5 to PIR (dukeleto)
- working on Parrot standard library
- building a framework for testing bytecode
- pruning C structures (talk to chromatic)
- security subsystem, PDD 18 (dukeleto)
- deprecated vtable function removal (cotto)
- cleanup the build process (coke)
