CoreHackers::Q

QAST tree visualizer

DESCRIPTION

Installs q command line script that parses out QAST trees from a program and makes an HTML file from them.

The HTML page provides these extra features unavailable in plain raku --target=ast and raku --target=optimize output:

Example output: An example

USAGE

Usage:
  q a '[<args> ...]'
  q o '[<args> ...]'

a command

$ q a raku -e 'say "hello"' > out.html; google-chrome out.html

a stands for --target=ast and the args that follow is a raku invocation to run the script (the --target=ast argument will be inserted automatically).

The script will parse QAST generated by the given raku program and output an HTML file to STDOUT. View the file in any browser to examine the QAST tree.

o command

$ q o raku -e 'say "hello"' > out.html; google-chrome out.html

o stands for --target=optimize. Same as a, except parses --target=optimize QAST. Once again, you don't need to manually specify --target parameter.

z command

$ q z raku -e 'say "hello"'

Just runs the raku command as is. Mnemonic: "zero". This command exists simply to easily switch between a/o runs and plain raku runs.
