I downloaded and installed the latest Windows x64 build of Rakudo (http://rakudo.org/downloads/star/rakudo-star-latest-x86_64%20(JIT).msi). My operating system is Windows Server 2016. When I try to install Inline::Perl5 with zef, the package installation fails.

It seems a bit unfair ("shooting the messenger") blaming zef for module install error messages and after all it does says "Perl 5 version requirement not met" Looking at what triggers this error... https://github.com/niner/Inline-Perl5/blob/master/Build.pm#L6 suggests you need 5.18 or better and it doesn't look this is installed. Note also the docs https://github.com/niner/Inline-Perl5/blob/master/README.md (under BUILDING) says your Perl 5 needs to be built with particular compile flags (-fPIC via -Duseshrplib). It's probably worth checking this is the case when you upgrade perl 5. If you have to rebuild perl5 from source you may (not sure) also have to rebuild perl 6 from source in order to use the same C compiler with both. This all *should* work on Windows (although I'd be unsurprised if noone has tested it recently) but it's probably easier to practice the steps on a common linux distro (under virtualbox or whatever) before trying it on that platform.

Thanks, that helps. I wasn't sure where to file this bug, because this is the first time I've used Rakudo.

What looks odd to me is the line

Can't find string terminator '"' anywhere before EOF at -e line 1.
which is presumably the command

shell('perl -e "use v5.18;"')

on the line you linked to in zef's Build.pm. Is shell a Perl 6 built-in? I can't find its definition in Rakudo's Windows build (documentation seems to be in site/doc/Type/IO.pod).

Indeed, if you try this line at the REPL prompt:

PS C:\rakudo> .\bin\perl6
To exit type 'exit' or '^D'
> shell('perl -e "use v5.18;"')
Can't find string terminator '"' anywhere before EOF at -e line 1.
Proc.new(in => IO::Pipe, out => IO::Pipe, err => IO::Pipe, exitcode => 255, signal => 0, command => ["perl -e \"use v5.18;\""])
>

Problem isn't lack of Perl 5:

PS C:\rakudo> perl -v

This is perl 5, version 26, subversion 0 (v5.26.0) built for MSWin32-x64-multi-thread

Ville

Looking at what triggers this error...

https://github.com/niner/Inline-Perl5/blob/master/Build.pm#L6

suggests you need 5.18 or better and it doesn't look this is installed.

Note also the docs

I downloaded and installed the latest Windows x64 build of Rakudo
(http://rakudo.org/downloads/star/rakudo-star-latest-x86_64%20(JIT).msi).
My operating system is Windows Server 2016.

When I try to install Inline::Perl5 with zef, the package installation
fails. But no matter how high I set verbosity, all I get is a cryptic
error message:

Is this a bug in zef or in perl6.bat?

Am I expected to read through the source code on the lines mentioned in
the stack trace?

It would be much more useful to see some diagnostics about which
compiler the Build package is trying to use (if any!), whether it has
failed to find it and what it is actually trying to accomplish.
