drakonis how much longer until it gets merged? 01:18

Nicholas good *, * 06:28
nine drakonis: there's quite a bit of work ahead still 07:31
Nicholas something like: 07:36
1162 red spectests with a status fail
and if one red spectest should unexpectedly pass
there'd by 1161 red spectests with a status fail
(repeat for another 1161 verses)
also, "unexpectedly pass" is not a good thing 07:37
"it's not easy being green"
nine My gut feeling says we're probably somewhere in the middle. That may sound disappointing considering the 2 years or so since the start. But then so far it was pretty much only jnthnwrthngtn working on it and he did new-disp in the same time frame. The latter is done and I have just joined the effort. And I think most of the difficult design questions are answered. 07:40

jnthnwrthngtn nine: I think there's still quite a few tricky design questions to go :) 09:24
nine: btw, it was 320 passing not so long ago, so back to 277 is still quite the regression 09:25

MasterDuke `Cannot have attributes on an array representation`. i just attempted to add some methods to MAST::Bytecode that would do a write_at at an incrementing position (to clean up github.com/Raku/nqp/pull/768), but the idea may not work nicely 10:44
i.e., i tried to add `has $!pos` and then the new method would do `write_at(..., $!pos); $!pos := $!pos + x;` 10:45
guess i can just implement via MoarVM::BytecodeWriter in NQP instead 10:48
nine jnthnwrthngtn: I have never managed to get 320 passing, even on the commit before my very first one 10:52
So 277 was my base line
MasterDuke: if it becomes too troublesome, I'd just leave your PR as it is. I don't like it, but sometimes we just have to accept a little uglyness 10:53
MasterDuke i'll see if doing in on MoarVM::BytecodeWriter is any cleaner, it's not difficult to give it a try. if not, i'll revert to as is + a variable rename for clarity 10:55

jnthnwrthngtn nine: Will check what I get. t/12-rakuast/var.t fails on latest `rakuast`, btw 13:03
But package seems OK
nine: Back up to 320 for me! \o/ Trying to guess the difference: do you do a `make spectest` without RAKUDO_RAKUAST=1 and then one with? 13:07
The first one pre-compiles all the various utility modules 13:08
And then the RakuAST-based compiler can load them
I guess just doing `make test` followed by the spectest with RAKUDO_RAKUAST=1 would pass rather less (for example, all that use is-run) 13:09
Ah, and I guess the var.t failure is the one we talked about :)
nine Yes, that's the one somewhat fishy test 13:10
And yes, I'm pretty sure that explains it :) I have noticed that I get only failures until I run one test without RAKUDO_RAKUAST=1. But of course that one test will not load all the modules
jnthnwrthngtn Aha, OK, then it makes sense. 13:11

MasterDuke hm, i don't think adding anything to MoarVM::BytecodeWriter is any cleaner. i could add an `$!mbc_pos` along its `$!mbc` and some methods which manipulate the two, but it/they would only be used in `write_frame` 20:12
dunno. all those `$!mbc.write_uint32_at($foo, $idx); $idx := $idx + 4;` could become `self.add_uint32($foo);`, with implementation `method add_uint32($data) { $!mbc.write_uint32_at($data, $!mbc_pos); $!mbc_pos := $!mbc_pos + 4; }` 20:18
maybe just two lexical subs in `write_frame` is better
then if the same kind of change is made elsewhere they could be pulled out into methods 20:19
nine 320 it is! 20:28
MasterDuke nice 20:29
jnthnwrthngtn High time for me to get to work and get 100 more passing... 20:49
MasterDuke ~1352 is the final target, correct? 20:53
jnthnwrthngtn Yup 20:57
Now it's 321 21:20
[Coke] woot 21:26
jnthnwrthngtn Will try and get a few more tomorrow. My brain is still mushy today. 21:35

MasterDuke nice. after the excitement of putting an offer on a house, going to go save earth from (another) alien invasion 21:42
21:43 linkable6 joined
jnthnwrthngtn Cool, best of luck with the house. :) 21:49
japhb ... and the alien invasion 21:54
.oO( Would they be worse than humans? )
MasterDuke thanks (for both) 22:07
