lue ohai! 01:29
Did I just hear that backtraces are ..... useful?
sorear snarkyboojum: don't forget certain non-core devs who make tests pass. 01:30
lue jnthn: if a part of Rakudo's insides were to fail, would it still look as nice as this? 01:37
jnthn lue: Well, not if the part of the internals is the backtrace printer. ;-)
lue: For subs in the setting, it should be able to do something sensible in theory.
lue: In practice we may have one more Parrot bug to fix yet. 01:38
lue .rnd(must .... get.... phone..... with MeeGo) 01:40
jnthn OK, dare I commit the backtrace code... :-) 01:41
sorear YES
jnthn :-)
We can debug and hack on it together to make it awesome. :-)
sorear It doesn't matter if you break all the spectests - it will still be worth pulling
jnthn sorear: Oh, it doesn't do that
All pass 01:42
Just didn't want to commit something that's even less helpful that the status quo.
But I think what I have now actually reporting real line numbers is more helpful.

01:43
sorear I never payed attention to Parrot backtraces
jnthn sorear: Heh. Maybe nobody other than a few core devs did either. I dunno. :-)
sorear: They probably look a tad offputting though.
sorear No, they were better than your version 01:44
However, not containing any correct information compensated for the superior formatting
jnthn sorear: Heh, superior? :-) 01:45
What do you like better about the Parrot ones?
Also, patches welcome. ;-)
sorear I thought we had the various fields lining up, but I just checked and I misremembered 01:46
jnthn sorear: ah
sorear: But nice thought.
sorear also, I'd like to see more information in backtraces
01:46 whiteknight left
sorear like the PC value 01:46
(I really did use that)
jnthn Erm
Wow. :-)
sorear: In that case I'm going to suggest, let's provide a flag --pir-backtrace or something, that disables this. 01:47
sorear does your version know how to format long names when it's not being compiled into GLOBAL?
jnthn sorear: And then people can see the real Parrot backtrace and get the PC.
sorear: Not yet, that's one of the next things to add.
sorear What about code in other HLL universes?
jnthn sorear: It should be able to show that too.
sorear: It assumes it has a Parrot sub and anything more it can find out beyond that is a bonus. 01:48

Wolfman2000 *chuckles*
I'm hoping to get a new Macbook Pro in a few months. Should have plenty of ram and hard drive space. When that happens, I can try compiling Perl 6 again......unless you guys managed to make Perl 6 compile with a gig of ram with no problems. 03:27
TimToady that is much improved, I think 03:28

Wolfman2000 ...huh. It compiled...relatively quickly. Seemed too quick. 03:42
Wolfman2000 goes to run the tests 03:43
sorear rakudo compilation has gotten a LOT faster in the last two months 03:44
it was around 10 hours when I joined the project for me
now it's down to 7 ... minutes
Wolfman2000 Compiler.pir took awhile to compile, but it...did its job
lue Maybe when R* comes along, I should try to compile on this old computer again.
Wolfman2000 It was about 7 minutes on my end as well, and I'm also pushing my ram usage to full.
Wolfman2000 is watching an iTunes U movie 03:45
sorear should take about 300 now

Wolfman2000 I haven't seen any TODOs yet. Still on S-06 03:53

but the question which I refer to is a semantic one, not a debugging one 04:35
take a look at STD.pm6:1430
notice that both sides of the alternation start with <.ws> 04:36
there should be no LTM going on, right?
TimToady ah, that is factored out

TimToady if there's whitespace before [ a | b | c ] it ignores the first whitespace on each alternative
Wolfman2000 ...and that should have worked
sorear TimToady: gimme5 factors it out, but I rather suspect it's doing so in error, since it changes the semantics - <.ws> ends a LTM pattern
TimToady a new LTM starts at the [] alternation 04:38
Wolfman2000 rakudo: ("5065726C36".comb(/<xdigit>**2/).map: { chr "0x" ~ $_ }).join.say
p6eval rakudo 8b3bb0: OUTPUT«Perl6␤»
Wolfman2000 there
TimToady each alternation is its own LTM

sorear I don't follow
TimToady but certaint that particular one stands on its own

so LTM shouldn't be able to affect which one is called?

pugssvn r30974 | sorear++ | [S05] Describe alternation left-factoring in rules, long implemented by gimme5 05:07
sorear what about sigspace with ~ ?
TimToady I think ~ currently screws up under sigspace 05:08
at the moment it's just a "Doctor, it hurts when I do this." 05:09
"So, don't do that."
sorear the viv component which reparses ~ currently just strips <.ws> from both sides
it runs a bit too low level though and even strips /explicit/ <.ws> ...
I wonder what the ideal behavior is 05:10
TimToady well, if we think of '(' ~ ')' <atom> as subbing in the <atom> for the ~, it kinda makes sense to transfer the ws to around <atom> 05:11
but generally, in practice, <atom> will be something that already handles whitespace
<statementlist> for instance
or EXPR
so the situation doesn't arise often in practice, and we could just say it treats it as '('~')' 05:12
sorear *lightbulb* the parsing behavior we want for ~ is exactly the same as for **
TimToady praps
sorear let's parse it as a psuedo quantifier
TimToady whatever works, and isn't *too* disgusting :) 05:13
sorear It'd be less disgusting than the current approach.
heh. I used $self->{dba} in the translation code for ~, but ~ is parsed with dba:additive... 05:19
TimToady you can always override the default dba
sorear no, $self is the match object for the ~ regex_infix__S_Tilde 05:20
that code would have been correct if I had written it as a method on a RE_node
