Pkgsrc changes:
 * Adapt to changes in list of installed files
 * Remove a now-irrelevant patch, add another as a workaround
   for a timing-dependent patch (done differently in later revisions)

Upstream changes:

- Core
   + The mark VTABLE was added to the Select PMC
   + The Parrot::Embed Perl 5 module was removed from parrot.git and now lives
   + A set_random method was added to the Integer PMC, so random numbers can
     be generated without needing to load math dynops
   + A new implementation of green threads was added to Parrot, in preparation
     for a robust hybrid threading system. Green threads are currently
     not available on Windows.

   submitted upstream.
 * Adapt to changes in the set of installed files.

Upstream changes:
- Core
  + The whiteknight/kill_threads branch was merged, which removes
    the old and broken thread/concurrency implementation. Better
    and more flexible concurrency primitives are currently being
    worked on. This also involved removing some of the last vestiges
    of assembly code from Parrot as well as removing the share and
    share_ro vtables.
  + random_lib.pir was removed, since better alternatives already exist
  + The freeze and thaw vtables were removed from Default PMC,
    because they weren't useful and caused hard-to-find bugs.
  + A new subroutine profiling runcore was added. It can be enabled
    with the command-line argument of -R subprof. The resulting
    data can be analyzed with kcachegrind.
  + Added get_string VTABLE to FixedIntegerArray and FixedFloatArray PMCs
  + The update() method was added to the Hash PMC, which updates
    one Hash with the contents of another. This speeds up rakudo/nqp
    startup time.
- Languages
  + Winxed
    - Updated snapshot to version 1.3.0

    PCT in Winxed:
- Documentation
  + We are in the process to migrating our Trac wiki at to Github at
  + Packfile PMC documentation was updated
- Tests
  + Select PMC tests improved to pass on non-Linuxy platforms

Update parrot from version 1.7.0 to 1.8.0.

Update OK'ed by agc@

Pkgsrc changes:
 o Replace perl and parrot interpreter references where we can
   (one perl module not available at pre-configure time not done)
 o Remove patches which are no longer necessary, since they either
   came from upstream or have been adopted there
 o Update the PLIST to sync with what's being installed

Upstream changes:

- Functionality
  + The FileHandle PMC now exposes the exit code of child process
    that was run as pipe.
  + Experimental support for overriding VTABLE invoke in PIR objects
    was added.
  + The method 'type' was added to the PackfileAnnotations PMC.
  + The internals of the parrot calling conventions, PCC, were
    reworked.  All call paths now use a CallSignature object for
    passing arguments and return values.
  + The new API-function 'Parrot_ext_call' was added for calling
    into C-land.
  + The fixed-size allocator was improved.
  + The files installed by 'make install-dev' are now covered by
    'make install' as well.
  + The experimental ops 'fetch' and 'vivify' were added.
  + The -I option to the command 'parrot' now prepends items to
    the search path.
  + The Context struct was substituted with auto attributes
    (context_auto_attrs branch).
  + Use the osname determined in auto::arch in subsequent configuration
    steps (convert_OSNAME branch).
  + Eliminated dependence on Perl 5 '%Config' in auto::format
    (auto_format_no_Config branch).
  + MultiSub PMCs now stringify to the name of their first candidate,
    instead of the number of candidates.
  + The platform detection at the start of the configuration process
    was improved.
  + The 'lineof' method on CodeString objects now precomputes line
    number information to be more efficient on variable-width
    encoded strings.
  + P6object now supports .WHO and .WHERE methods on protoobjects.
- Compilers
  + A shiny new self-hosting implementation of NQP has been added
    in ext/nqp-rx.
    - New NQP available as nqp-rx.pbc or parrot-nqp fakecutable.
    - NQP includes direct support for grammars and regexes, including
    - NQP has a new PAST-based regex engine (intended to replace PGE).
    - Regexes may contain code assertions, parameters, lexical
      declarations, and more.
    - Double-quoted strings now interpolate scalar variables and closures.
    - Subroutine declarations are now lexical by default.
  + PCT
    - PAST::Block now supports an 'nsentry' attribute.
    - PAST::Var allows 'contextual' scope.
    - Attribute bindings now return the bound value.
- Platforms
  + Fixes for the port of Parrot to RTEMS were applied. Yay, first
    port to a real time OS!
  + On NetBSD, shared libs are now used.
- Performance
  + Use the the fixed-sized allocator in the Context and the
    CallSignature PMC.
  + Many small speed improvements.
- New deprecations
  + MT19937, the Mersenne twisted pseudorandom number generator,
    is now hosted on github and will be removed from the Parrot
    core. (eligible in 2.1)
  + The 'Parrot_call_*' functions for invoking a sub/method object from C are
    deprecated. They are replaced by 'Parrot_ext_call'. (eligible in 2.1)
  + All bitwise VTABLE functions are deprecated. (eligible in 2.1)
  + All bitwise ops will become dynops. (eligible in 2.1)
- Realized deprecations
  + The slice VTABLE entry was removed.
  + The last traces of the 'malloc' garbage collector were removed.
  + Parrot_pcc_constants() was renamed to Parrot_pcc_get_constants().
  + The deprecated functions from the Embedding/Extension interface
    were removed.
  + The library YAML/Parser/Syck.pir was removed.
  + The VTABLE function instantiate_str() was removed.
  + Building of parrot_nqp was removed.
- Tests
  + The test coverage of the time-related ops was much improved.
  + New testing functions in Test::More: lives_ok() and dies_ok().
  + The Perl 5 based test scripts t/op/bitwist.t, t/op/comp.t,
    t/op/inf_nan.t, t/op/literal.t, t/op/number.t, t/op/sprintf2.t,
    and t/op/00ff-dos.t were converted to PIR.
  + The test scripts t/op/annotate.t and t/op/time.t have begun
    to be translated from Perl 5 to PIR.
  + In some tests the dependency on %Config from Perl 5 was eliminated.
- Documentation
  + The meaning of 'p' means in NCI function call signatures was clarified.
- Tools
  + The stub for a new language, as created by,
    now relies on the PIR-based tools, which are replacing the Perl
    5-based tools.
  + The library Configure.pir was added.
  + The library distutils.pir was added.
- Miscellaneous
  + The mailing list parrot-users and a corresponding google group was created,

Log Message:
Fix the detection and use of perldoc, so that this package can be
fully built and installed when the build is run as root.  The reason
this is problematical is that perldoc changes uid if run as root, to
either 'nobody', 'nouser' or uid -2, for security reasons, and then
cannot write files owned by root or create files in directories owned
by root with 'normal' permissions.

No revision bump as this should purely be a build fix.

fully built and installed when the build is run as root.  The reason
this is problematical is that perldoc changes uid if run as root, to
either 'nobody', 'nouser' or uid -2, for security reasons, and then
cannot write files owned by root or create files in directories owned
by root with 'normal' permissions.

No revision bump as this should purely be a build fix.

Update from version 0.4.11nb1 to 1.0.0.

Pkgsrc changes:
 o Take maintainership (apologies if I'm stepping on someone's toes)
 o The package now has built-in knowledge if the CPU arch has working
   jit support (currently i386, powerpc and arm, of which the two first
   have been tested), so there's no need to direct the jit support from
   the main Makefile
 o Update PLIST
 o Added patches to port to NetBSD/powerpc (reported upstream)
 o Added patch to remove a GNUism from one of the shell scripts
   (test using == in place of =)

Upstream changes:
 o Too many to mention; there have been some 20-odd number of
   intervening releases since the 0.4.11 release of 2007-Apr-17,
   according to
   which contains the release history.

OK'ed by wiz@.

patch-aa (with dragonfly config) got merged upstream. Applying the
patch with a more tolerant version of patch (like netbsd's) gives two
copies of the definitions in the same file, with who knows what
consequences. Applying the patch with a less tolerant version of patch

So, remove it, and bump PKGREVISION just in case.

Initial import of parrot-0.0.1, a pre-pubescent byte code interpreter
which may form part of Perl or Python's future, into the NetBSD packages

Provided in PR 13933 by Chris Pinnock <>, tarted
up somewhat by me.

PARROT: A bytecode language possible to be used in the future by 
Perl 6 and a Python.

The idea was originally an April fool's joke...

"What we're releasing today is a very, very early alpha of the Parrot
interpreter.  At the moment, we have support for some simple
operations on integer, floating point and string registers, and the
ability to read in and execute bytecode.  We also have an assembler
which can generate bytecode output from Parrot assembly."
