Will “Coke” Coleda released Parrot 0.4.10 on 20 March 2007. I’m particularly excited about this version because we finally have Parrot::Embed compiling and running (with the appropriate path setting for certain platforms) on multiple platforms.
Parrot::Embed allows you to use Parrot code in your Perl programs. Right now it supports basic subroutines (though multidispatch works on the Parrot side). Soon it will support Parrot objects.
Yes, there is a Ruby version in progress.
If there’s any interest, I’m happy to walk through the code or show examples of its use.
