There were 137 messages across 44 threads, with 41 authors contributing.
(10 posts) Piers Cawley gave a huge list of slice examples, wondering what the expected context would be.
(33 posts) There were several threads centered around getting
make to work everywhere - with
nmake being the most problematic.
Jaen Saul had not one, but two major threads on
nmake incompatibilities in the Parrot makefile, causing a failed build on Win32. Both Jeff Goff and Robert Spier are working on a complete Perl replacement for the build process. (With Jeff having already committed a preliminary one.)
- Jaen Saul provided a temporary solution one of his problems.
- Andy Dougherty and Garrett Goebel both tentatively fixed some of the other Win32 problems.
- Robert Spier patched
distcleanto keep any CVS-related files.
(1 post) Jeff Goff also turned in the aggregate keys code, leading the way for development on arrays and hashes.
(7 posts) Bryan C. Warnock posted his thoughts on Parrot bytecode.
Dave Mitchell has finally been given a PDD number (7) for the coding standards, so they should be up on dev.perl.org soon.
