13:51 Harzilein hi
13:52 Harzilein can i augment the paths for runtime/library files with an environment variable? the manpage only mentions switching the runtime path
13:53 Harzilein i.e. i want to install something with setup.pir install --root "$HOME"/.local, then add an environment variable in my shell startup configuration
14:47 Util Harzilein: Some combination of these four env vars may do what you need:
14:47 Util PARROT_DYNEXT PARROT_LIBRARY PARROT_INCLUDE PARROT_RUNTIME
14:47 Util Search for them in t/library/lib_search_path.t
14:47 Util and docs/deprecations/deprecations.pod for a little clarity.
14:47 Util And thanks for pointing out this weakness in the doc!
15:01 Harzilein is there a minimal pir program that prints the library path?
15:03 Harzilein oh well, i'll look at the test
15:06 Harzilein now to set up plumage so it finds the actions i guess
15:06 Harzilein hrm
15:06 Harzilein plumage> help
15:06 Harzilein Method 'usage' not found for invocant of class 'Undef'
15:09 Harzilein hmm... there's a plumage.1 that is installed by parrot btw, while not shipping the program itself
15:14 Harzilein seems that it worked though, i'll use 'usage' instead of 'help' for now
15:15 Harzilein oh, and when i exit with ^D i get a stacktrace too :/
15:19 Harzilein thanks for the pointers anyway :)
15:26 Harzilein 1|harzi@toybox:~ $ plumage -c .config/plumage/config.json
15:26 Harzilein plumage> fetch lua
15:26 Harzilein Fetching lua ...
15:27 Harzilein [...]
15:27 Harzilein Successful.
15:27 Harzilein :D
15:41 Harzilein have languages ever used the PARROT_LIBRARY path or why is that explicitely tested for?
15:50 Harzilein harzi@toybox:~/.local/lib/parrot/8.1.0/languages $ parrot-lua
15:50 Harzilein Unknown PMC type to thaw 99
15:50 Harzilein current instr.: 'main' pc 4 (lua.pir:96)
15:50 Harzilein called from Sub 'main' pc 7 (lua.pir:98)
