Building parrot on cygwin is not as straightforward as on other platforms. You have to add path of
PATH environment variable. For example,
It’s better to add this line into your
.bashrc file so that you do not need to run it every time you start a console.
After that, you can follow basic building steps to build parrot.
$ perl Configure.PL
To test parrot, write a hello.pir
print "Hello world!\n"
And then run it
$ parrot hello.pir
If everything is ok, you should get a string as output.
