TimToady @tell pmurias yes, void context is a special kind of scalar context, and map/for both eagerly return a list object in scalar context (lazily in list context), and either can be used only for its side effects; they are isomorphic. see S04:279 06:10
lambdabot Consider it noted.
TimToady @tell pmurias a useless-use-of warning results if you use a non-side-effective operation within either map or for in void context, but the map/for don't themselves care 06:13
lambdabot Consider it noted.
TimToady @tell pmurias and of course, the array object need not actually be constructed if it is known that void context will throw it away; in fact, it may well be the void context optimizer that emits the warnings about useless-use as it propagates void context inward 06:21
lambdabot Consider it noted.

pmurias ruoso: hi, turned out Array.map is enough ;) 20:46
lambdabot pmurias: You have 3 new messages. '/msg lambdabot @messages' to read them.
ruoso pmurias, yeah... I saw it...
it's weird to think that Array.Void() will eagerly evaluate a lazy array...
pmurias it will only extract it's side effects 20:48
20:49 jferrero joined
pmurias i'm convinced more and more that we should take the context is part of the method call route 20:50
ruoso hmm 20:52
I still can only think on contextual information as optimization...
moritz_ want() 20:53
ruoso want() is something that cannot always be answered, iirc
20:53 Auzon left 20:54 justatheory joined
moritz_ well, sometimes you have to fake answer 20:55
ruoso that's why I'd rather use lazy contextualization...
by calling methods on the returned value
(that's how "sub foo is rw" is implemented in SMOP, btw) 20:56
moritz_ that's the recommended approach, but not the only allowed
ruoso sure... that's why I think on "context on the stack frame" as optimization...
and that we could stick to method calls on the returned values for now...
pmurias shower& 20:57
ruoso because instead of doing if (want() ~~ Scalar), I can return an object that knows how to perform in the different contexts... 20:58
pmurias like Contextual::Return?
ruoso yeah 20:59
I think that should improve the overall lazyness of the code...
which IMHO, is a good thing... 21:00
21:00 apeiron_ joined
ruoso I could even think about dropping "want" entirely.... ;) 21:00
geez... have to run 21:01

wknight8111 ...neither of those answers look right 23:48
TimToady well, at least that parses :)
you can't just use a statement where a term is expected
ruoso TimToady, but is there really a use to my @a = for?
I mean...
isn't that the use of "map"? 23:49
TimToady map is just another way to write the same thing
you'll note the args come in a different order
23:49 meppl left
TimToady map is even more redundant with list comprehensions 23:49
23:50 meppl joined
ruoso I know that it will benefit from optimizations depending on the context... 23:50
but it's a shame that it needs to be optimized... IMHO... 23:51
23:52 Chillance left
TimToady I'd much rather keep the semantics of statement for and modifier fo the same 23:52
and modifier for is essential for list comprehension syntax
which has to return its values
ruoso and turn the "modifier for" into a map, actually 23:53
23:53 justatheory left
TimToady they're all maps, really 23:53
ruoso but a for that doesn't return is simpler than a map 23:54
I'm arguing that we should keep at least one option that simply doesn't return any value
TimToady I know you're arguing that, and I'm ignoring you. :) 23:55
ruoso he
23:56 elmex left
TimToady void context propagation has to happen anyway--I don't really consider it an optimizaiton 23:56
23:57 Lichtkind left
ruoso alright... so for is just a synonym for map... and both are evaluated lazily... 23:59
TimToady in list context...
ruoso void context causes eager evaluation...
