3 Weeks left to sign up for the Perl 6 Tutorial course at TPC in Glasgow

Perl6 Readline update

A long time coming, this looks along /usr/lib64 and /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu for existing libreadline.so.* libraries, otherwise assumes v7. I'll add more directories as I find them, and make sure that it looks recursively in /lib if all else fails as part of the next release. I'll be adding comments to the GitHub issues shortly, as it should address most of the existing problems.

ANTLR4::Grammar v0.1.0 to Perl 6 CPAN

ANTLR4::Grammar lets you convert ANTLR4 lexer and parser grammars from ANTLR to Perl 6. It currently works with all of the basic EBNF constructs, and for the moment chooses to ignore the features of ANTLR that the native Grammar type doesn't support. When I've added the basic Action class I'll probably add support for ANTLR4 modes. ANTLR4 types make a bit of sense as they've at least got string and int types, but actions don't make much sense as if you're using the tool, you're likely porting an existing Java- or C-based grammar over to Perl 6 and the existing Java code wouldn't makeā€¦
