s1n how does submethod differ from using 'my method'? 04:13
dukeleto can someone point me in the right direction regarding NCI with Rakudo/Parrot? Is there a document describing how to add bindings to a third-party library via NCI ? 04:15
bacek_ dukeleto: docs/pdds/draft/pdd16_native_call.pod in parrot 04:23
dukeleto: also examples/nci in parrot can give some... erm.. examples :)
dukeleto bacek: thanks, I didn't look in examples for some dumb reason ... 04:26
bacek_ dukeleto: what you are trying to bind? 04:29
dukeleto bacek: Oh, I have lots of things in mind, but GSL is the first. It is a fairly large library, but I already have a large test suite in Perl 5 for Math::GSL that could be hijacked 04:32
bacek_ dukeleto: looks great. 04:34
dukeleto i have made a new trac ticket at to decide on a pilot/co-pilot for Parrot-related affairs this summer
bacek_ will never apply for this :) 04:36
dukeleto bacek: thanks. if parrot had GSL bindings, than there is the possibility for any language using Parrot to get GSL bindings "for free.
bacek_ I've got enough manager's responsibility at $work...
dukeleto bacek: yeah, just a general notice for the channel, wasn't directed at you or anything :)
that is pretty cool, since every dynamic language I know of that has GSL bindings put a lot of sweat, blood and tears into making it happen. 04:37
bacek_ ring to bind them all... :) 04:38

sbp is that a known bug? I tried here:
but no apparent report of it
(or is my code simply wrong?)
moritz_ what's wrong with it?
you declare explicitly that your block doesn't want a parameter
sbp well, as I understand it -> { ... } means that $_ can be used much like $^a would be 13:49
moritz_ so it gets none
sbp hmm
moritz_ no, that would be { ... } without the arrow in front
sbp oh, hmm. I could've sworn I read about -> { $_ } for this somewhere...

13:52 brunoV joined
sbp moritz_: if '-> { }' explicitly decares that the block doesn't want a parameter, how come $^a can be used therein? does $^a override the explicit declaration that you don't want parameters? 13:52
moritz_ sbp: it can't
rakudo: for <abc def ghi> -> { say $^a } 13:53

pmichaud Parrot isn't able to throw an exception for zero-parameter functions.
I.e., if a sub is declared as having zero arguments, Parrot silently accepts multiple arguments.
ruoso but where is @_ coming from?
pmichaud ah, that's likely a bug, yes. 14:21
I'd have to check.
ruoso PhatEddy has pointed me in pvt that this looks similar to 56366
but I thought it would be different because it's not just failing to check empty signatures 14:22
it's implying the default signature in empty signatures...
pmichaud right -- in a couple of places we've added code to explicitly check for arguments passed to zero-arg subs.
14:22 araujo joined
pmichaud as far as default signature in empty signatures... I'll have to check. 14:22
ruoso I mean... considering :(*@_, *%_) is the default signature 14:23
pmichaud right now it appears that Rakudo treats any use of @_ as meaning "add a slurpy param"
ruoso hmm... is that spec?
pmichaud Yes. 14:24
oh wait, that's for placeholders. 14:25
okay, we'll have to add some code for fixups. 14:27
that's likely to be a bit challenging 14:28
{ @_ } # uses outer @_
{ $^a; @_ } # has @_ as a parameter
{ @_; $^a } # has @_ as a parameter.... but we can't determine that until we see the $^a placeholder. 14:29
14:30 amoc joined
ruoso { $^a; @_ } must use outer @_ as well 14:30
pmichaud no, that's not what S06 says.

.count is for optional
14:38 kimtaro joined
PhatEddy So if 64344 stands as a bug it would seem to be distinguished from 56366 by its use of @_ which might be worth a comment and perhaps even a subject change for the former? 14:40
ruoso well... the bug 64344 points is the generation of *@_ even without any other placeholder parameters... 14:43
56366 is about the innability to check empty signatures... 14:44

p6eval rakudo 78cb4c: OUTPUT«too many arguments passed - 0 params expected␤current instr.: 'die' pc 15621 (src/builtins/control.pir:204)␤»
PhatEddy isn't the @_ the cause of the innability to check empty signatures? 14:45
14:48 finanalyst joined, ZuLuuuuuu joined, eternaleye left 14:49 finanalyst left
pmichaud No, @_ isn't the cause. It's a Parrot bug. 14:51
(for those functions that have been written in PIR) 14:52
actually, it's a Parrot bug in general.
PhatEddy the subject of 64344 is "empty signatures"
ruoso PhatEddy, well... the bug is related to empty signatures ;) 14:53
maybe that can be narrowed down a bit more

pmichaud note to people watching larry's talk (in real time): to help perl 6 development, write perl 6 applications! :-) 22:13
22:14 bacek_ joined
jnthn :-) 22:14
pmichaud: Great to see you're digging back into PGE! 22:15
pmichaud yes, these are all things that have been on my back burner for a while as I dealt with other "more immediate" issues.
I'm glad it's back on the front burner.
jnthn Same.
moritz_ write perl 6 applications - I fully agree :-) 22:18

jnthn will be Rakudo-daying tom^Wtoday :-) 22:19
pmichaud excellent. Although I can't believe it's Wednesday already. :-)
Tene where's larry talking? 22:20
jnthn I can't believe it's *April* already.
pmichaud Tene: MIT
jnthn needs to start prepping for NPW.
pmichaud Tene: just finished (at least my stream of it did)
22:21 brunoV left
dukeleto yep, i enjoyed it very much 22:22
Tene Aw. 22:23
22:24 hercynium left
jnthn Yes, was good to watch. 22:25
Tene: I think video will be posted later also.
moritz_ it would be nice to have always the latest release announcement somewhere on 22:27
dukeleto indeed
Tene so, jnthn and pmichaud, any consensus on leave? 22:29
jnthn Tene: Did you read the discussion I think yesterday on that?
Tene For the past few days I've been offline. 22:30
So, no.
I've read it now. 22:31
It felt consensus-ish. 22:34
Tene Yes, I asked Larry whether you could catch leave exceptions, and he waffled for a bit, and then trailed off.

Tene If Parrot is going to have block-exit stuff that we can use, then yes, that would be better. 22:37
I was expecting to implement all of that myself. 22:38
And if we're doing it ourselves, exceptions looks like the way to do it (when you have a hammer...)
pmichaud (latest release announcement) I've asked how we can get news items to appear on the front page, but no response yet. 22:40
moritz_ :(
pmichaud I'll ask again and we'll give it a week and if no response we'll look into something more drastic. 22:41
jnthn pmichaud: I asked too about that.
pmichaud afk # kid soccer practice (I got called to coach today's practice at last minute) 22:44

Tene argh $realjob calls

cspencer if i'm writing a Perl 6 class and I wanted to be able to numify it (with the + prefix op), am i supposed to just defined a multi method called Num? 23:48
