blizkost: September 2009 Archives

Blizkost is passing 102 tests!

| | TrackBacks (0)
Blizkost, Perl 5 on Parrot, is really starting to pick up speed. I just imported the base Perl 5 tests (the ones that live in t/base) and Blizkost passes every file except lex.t and one TODO test about implementing the -l command line argument. If you can make lex.t work, you get super-cool ninja points. It is probably the use of the package keyword in lex.t that borks the test. If you feel like porting other tests from the Perl 5 Test Suite, they live in t/spec in the Blizkost repo.

Currently, Blizkost cannot load XS modules, such as Data::Dumper. You get an error like:

Can't load '/usr/lib/perl/5.10/auto/Data/Dumper/' for module Data::Dumper: /usr/lib/perl/5.10/auto/Data/Dumper/ undefined symbol: Perl_sv_cmp at /usr/lib/perl/5.10/ line 64.
 at /usr/lib/perl/5.10/Data/ line 36

If you can help get enough XS-loading machinery to work so that Data::Dumper works, that would really help development and testing. If you can try out Blizkost on your system and make sure that it compiles and the test suite passes, we would greatly appreciate it. Feel free to open an issue on github if you find a bug.
