Re: [perl #37303] [PATCH] Relaxing parrot dependency on parrot_config
Message ID:

Here's an updated version of a patch to change how parrot picks up its 
built-in configuration values. They are currently picked up by the 
parrot library through globals linked against the executable.

This patch changes the API so that the parrot environment starts without 
a config (which makes linking pdb, disassemble et al. cleaner) and then 
the executable can call Parrot_set_config_string to register the 
environment.

I'd like to thank Francois Perrad for behind-the-scenes involvement on this.

Regards,

Nick

p.s. I've had to make up some variable and file names, so feel free to 
change them to meet broken conventions. It's the mechanism that I keen 
to refine (enabling libparrot.so/libparrot.dll to be more easily built 
on more platforms)
