    88'''Status:''' Compiles and a couple of tests run.  Needs clean up for submission to [http://www.parrot.org| Parrot] and all appropriate tests passing.

    12 '''Introduction:''' [http://www.parrot.org| Parrot Joel Sherrill] is a cool project that Chris and Joel think would be an enabling technology for RTEMS.  It would let RTEMS developers include code written in numerous dynamic languages into the hard real-time environment RTEMS supports.  This would be especially useful for scripting on the target.  Consider a remote control robot where the command language was in a dynamic language that could be converted to byte-code, uploaded to the target, and then executed. This is just the tip of the iceberg that is possible with Parrot on RTEMS.

    20 '''Requirements:''' You will need to have to feel comfortable tracking now small issues, providing clean solutions and getting them integrated into their appropriate code base.  Some issues will require modifications to the Parrot build system or Parrot itself.  Some may require augmenting RTEMS to make life easier for Parrot. A lot of this project will be building a test framework for Parrot on RTEMS and fixing what is broken.  We don't know how many tests will require investigation and debug but RTEMS is sufficiently POSIX compliant where we expect this to be minimal.  There may be places where Parrot can be tuned or "down sized" for embedded systems.  This should be investigated.
