parrot-nqp — Not Quite Perl (6)

Synopsis

parrot-nqp <file>

Description

This is "Not Quite Perl (6)" -- a High Level Language (HLL) which allows one to write Perl6-like code. The key feature of NQP is that it's designed to be an easy-to-parse subset of Perl 6. It is geared towards being a high-level way to create transformers for Parrot (especially HLL compilers). It is based on PCT::HLLCompiler.

NQP is used as a bootstrapping language in for Rakudo, and hence developed outside of the main Parrot git repository. It is occasionally snapshotted into the main Parrot codebase so it can be bundled with Parrot releases and be used by core Parrot developers as well as HLL developers.
