Parrot is a virtual machine designed to efficiently compile and execute bytecode for dynamic languages. Parrot currently hosts a variety of language implementations in various stages of completion, including Tcl, Javascript, Ruby, Lua, Scheme, PHP, Python, Perl 6, APL, and a .NET bytecode translator. Parrot is not about parrots, though we are rather fond of them for obvious reasons.

My proposal for Google's Summer of Code 2012 has been accepted!

LAPACK bindings for Parrot-Linear-Algebra

LAPACK bindings for Parrot-Linear-Algebra so as to provide an interface for the basic linear algebra functions.In modern treatments of linear algebra, matrices are considered first. Matrices provide a theoretically and practically useful way of approaching many types of problems including: solution of systems of linear equations,graph theory, theory of games, computer graphics,data compression,etc.

Hello Parrot

Hello everybody,
Let me introduce myself. I'm Bart Wiegmans, brrt on irc, and I will be implementing a new mod_parrot this summer, courtesy of google and whiteknight. Which will make it possible to serve parrot-powered web applications once again.

So, who am I? I'm 24 years old and I study biology in Groningen, the Netherlands where I live together with my girlfriend. Aside from that, I work as a programmer for studenten.net. As for hobbies, I play mario kart and pikmin. I used to say I had four pet rats, but unfortunately one of them died just Last weekend.

Parrot 4.2.0 "Ornithopter" Released!

"Technology, in common with many other activities, tends toward avoidance of
risks by investors. Uncertainty is ruled out if possible. Capital investment
follows this rule, since people generally prefer the predictable. Few recognize
how destructive this can be, how it imposes severe limits on variability and
thus makes whole populations fatally vulnerable to the shocking ways our
universe can throw the dice."

Parrot 4.0.0 "Hyperstasis" Released!

At one extreme, it is possible to approach the subject on a high mathematical
epsilon-delta level, which generally results in many undergraduate students not
knowing what's going on. At the other extreme, it is possible to wave away all
the subtleties until neither the student nor the teacher knows what's going on.

-Stanley J. Farlow, Preface to Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and
Engineers

On behalf of the Parrot team, I'm proud to announce Parrot 4.0.0,

Guitor Hero

I've created a new project: Guitor, a GUI creaTOR module written in winxed using Xlib via NCI.

It's not much feature complete yet, but has enough funcionality to provide some nice examples, including a viewer for R->R functions and a drawing board.

I've tested only in linux amd64 and i386, so the StructView used may be not appropiate in some platforms, feedback will be appreciated.

https://github.com/NotFound/Guitor

Install: winxed setup.winxed install

Run an example: winxed examples/pizarra.winxed

Enjoy!
