NAME ^

docs/deprecations/deprecations_3_3.pod - Parrot Deprecations for 3.3

DESCRIPTION ^

Parrot Deprecations for 3.3.

pkg-config Support

parrot.pc will no longer be generated or installed.

Rationale

pkg-config conflicts with Parrot's installation guidelines which support multiple simultaneous installed versions (PDD30).

As it stands, Parrot's pkg-config information has been unusable for several years, but no one has complained, indicating that this is unused.

Replacement

Use parrot_config, which is installed with the parrot system.

The keys 'embed-cflags' and 'embed-ldflags' replace the pkg-config values of 'CFlags' and 'Libs'.
