NAME ^

Parrot::Revision - Revision number of Parrot

Note: This package is largely obsolete, as the Git version control system does not use a continually incrementing integer to designate a particular revision, as our previous CVS and Subversion VCSes did. We retain it for backwards compatibility for certain high-level languages built on top of Parrot.

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Parrot::Revision;

    print $Parrot::Revision::current;

DESCRIPTION ^

Get parrot's current and configure time revision.

We currently always return "1" to tell old HLL's that this version of Parrot is too new for them. There is currently no way to say "we are too new for you", so we have to lie again and say we are too old.
