Yep, I knew what you meant! I'm in the process of writing this up
right now, assuming I can finish compiling Haskell sometime this week
(it ain't exactly a fast compile, hrmph).

You folks took me too literally :)  I meant:  Given a system without
pugs/parrot/haskell (I assume perl5 is required), what are the things you
need to install so that you can say

perl6 -e "say 'hello world'"


tar xf ghc.tar.gz
make install

tar xf parrot.tar.gz
make test
make install

tar xf pugs.tar.gz
perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install

vi hello.p6


say "hello world";

Naturally it's much more complicated than that (choosing binary
distributions, whether to get a source ball or svn, whether to run make
test, etc).  But new users might not know that perl6=pugs right now and
haskell is needed.  And where parrot fits in...
