19:55 vktec Hi
19:56 vktec I'm just getting started with Parrot, and I'm trying to run some Python code. I've tried `parrot hello-world.py` but it fails with an error. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
20:21 rurban parrot is just a vm. for python search for it. http://www.parrot.org/languages doesn't have it.
20:21 rurban pynie is the name of the implementation
20:22 rurban this is what I've found: https://bitbucket.org/allison/pynie
20:23 rurban But I don't think that it will work. development on it stopped around 2011
20:23 rurban explanation: http://pyvideo.org/pycon-us-2010/pycon-20​10--pynie--python-3-on-parrot---148.html
21:12 vktec rurban: From the Parrot website:
21:12 vktec > Parrot currently hosts a variety of language implementations in various stages of completion, including Tcl, Javascript, Ruby, Lua, Scheme, PHP, Python, Perl 6, APL, and a .NET bytecode translator.
21:12 vktec I'm interested in how I translate one of those languages into Parrot bytecode
21:12 vktec It seems to imply they're all officially supported
21:18 rurban No. parrot supports no single language implementation. they are all external.
21:19 rurban We don't host them anymore. And even rakudo/perl6 support was dropped by them.
21:19 vktec Okay, that makes sense
21:20 vktec What's a good language to try out parrot with?
21:20 rurban parrot supports PIR and PASM
21:21 vktec I'll take a look at them. Thanks
21:21 rurban I think the only language in parrot itself is nqp-rx, which is the old version of nqp from perl6.
21:22 rurban and then there are also examples/languages/abc and sqaak
21:23 rurban winxed is a good language to try out also
21:24 vktec Thanks for the suggestions
