parrot: A virtual machine for all dynamic languages1

Parrot is a virtual machine designed to efficiently compile and execute bytecode for dynamic languages. Parrot currently hosts a variety of language implementations in various stages of completion, including Tcl, Javascript, Ruby, Lua, Scheme, PHP, Python, Perl 6, APL, and a .NET bytecode translator.

Parrot was born from the Perl 6 development effort, but currently treats Perl 6 as only one of its many client languages.
