The languages left the nest with Parrot 1.0, and many libraries will
leave after 2.3.
My main goal is to build & test them without Perl5 dependency.
See runtime/parrot/library/distutils.pir & runtime/parrot/library/TAP.
My current needs are :
- a way to chmod file (see TT #1322)
- a TAR library (first creation)
- a zlib library (first compression)
I want to experiment the parallel build & test (option --jobs=Nb core).
With the subroutine run_jobs (see above), distutils is ready for a refactoring
.sub 'run_jobs' # serial build
.param pmc jobs
unless jobs goto L2
$S0 = shift jobs
system($S0, 1 :named('verbose')) # mainly, a spawnw $S0
but I don't known which parallelism model is supplied by Parrot.
