Building the Portable Padre on Portable Strawberry Perl

(This is mostly important for the Padre development team and not the end user)

How to include Padre into Portable Strawberry and how to release it

  • Install Padre using
    cpan> install Padre
    
  • Install Plugins
  • .padre is currently in C:\ shall we set the PADRE_HOME to a directory in the portable distribution? (if so we can configure the plug-ins and ship them but we have to make sure the configuration files don't include personal history..
  • remove the cpan_sqlite_log.... files from c:\portable\cpan
  • remove C:\portable\cpan\build and C:\portable\cpan\sources C:\portable\cpan\Bundle
  • remove C:\portable\perl\bin\lex which the temporary directory of STD.pm (~ 80 Mb)
  • ( the whole portable directory is now 202 Mb including a bare bones parrot and rakudo installation )
  • copy portablepadre.bat and padrewrap.pl from the SVN of padre\tools\portable_strawberry to portable\perl\bin
  • run padre/trunk/tools/include_parrot.pl
  • create a zip file and drag all the content of c:\portable\ in it
    • (TODO isn't there a command line tool in portable to create the zip file ?)
  • The resulting zip file for Padre 0.25 on Portable Strawberry beta 1 was 60 Mb,

Parrot and Rakudo

Download git for windows and install it

http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/ http://msysgit.googlecode.com/files/Git-1.6.3.2-preview20090608.exe

Answers I selected:

  • Use Git Bash only
  • Use OpenSSH (though not really needed)
  • Use Windows style line endings

Download command line SVN for windows and install it

http://www.collab.net/downloads/subversion/

Download CollabNet? Subversion Command-Line Client

set PATH=%PATH%;C:\Program Files\Git\bin

Actual building instructions:

mkdir c:\tools
cd c:\tools
git clone git://github.com/rakudo/rakudo.git six

cd six

Optionally switch to a rakudo release tag. e.g. to PDX

git checkout PDX
perl Configure.pl --gen-parrot --gen-parrot-prefix=c:\strawberry\six --parrot-config=c:\strawberry\six\bin\parrot_config.exe
mingw32-make
mingw32-make test
mingw32-make install

The size of c:\strawberry\six is now 322/346 MB

Files needed are On Windows

   six/CREDITS
   six/LICENSE
   six/perl6.exe
   six/libparrot.dll
   six/parrot/CREDITS
   six/parrot/LICENSES
   six/parrot/runtime

size: 20 MB

zipped size 6 Mb.

In the Padre repo there is a tools\include_parrot.pl that could be refurbished and used to list the files that are needed by rakudo instead of deleting the others.

Switch back to master

git checkout master
