I’ve got my fork of Panda working on Niecza. There are two major issues which remain to be resolved, and they are both related. Panda assumes that the Perl 6 executable is named
perl6, and modules should be installed to
~/.perl6. That’s great if you have just one Perl 6 on your system.
But in this crazy modern world, I really want both Rakudo and Niecza on my system. And so assuming that everything can be named “perl6” is a big problem.
I’m hoping the community can put their heads together and figure out a solution. I guess the obvious one (which would only need sorear to buy in) would be installing Niecza modules to
~/.niecza, and creating a “real”
niecza executable. (It might well be as simple as a one-line script “mono path-to-Niecza.exe”.)
Good idea or bad idea?
