raiph hi lizmat :)
lizmat raiph: the whole idea of auth/version in the use statement, is that as a developer, you can "freeze" the version of a module that you want to use in a given scope 09:32
provided this auth/version of that module are *not* removed from a system
you can be assured that everything will continue to work, regardless of other versions of that module being installed on a system 09:33
if an upgrade of an app changes the auth/version of a module being used, then that auth/version of the module should also be installed 09:34
for apps, you could e.g. force the use of a single CUR object in @*INC, which has all of the needed modules installed aka local::lib 09:35
raiph lizmat: thanks, will read later, gotta run 09:39

yoleaux 1 May 2015 09:09Z <quester> [Tux]: I have just posted a fairly awkward workaround if you are in a hurry, but it looks like jnthn and lizmat are looking into at least one of the underlying problems, so there is light at the end of the tunnel.

lizmat this is in the process of being fixed

lizmat yes, unpushable atm
timotimo ah
lizmat and yes, before jnthn's improvements
timotimo because it breaks precomp, i suppose
lizmat yup
timotimo precomp is such a fragile beast
lizmat need to make sure it doesn't break panda 13:26
timotimo i wonder if i should try to get JSON::Fast into rakudo for the module database loading
lizmat anyway, fist some fresh air &
jnthn Well, if you're doing stuff at startup that interacts with module loading, you can't code it in ignorance of pre-comp :)
lizmat jnthn: indeed
jnthn timotimo: I'm rather go with some non-JSON solution... 13:27
timotimo last time i thought about that (or rather: was asked to) i thought froggs' work to use MVM's serialization instead was about to finish
jnthn Like FROGGS++ was working on
timotimo yes
jnthn Yeah, he ran into some difficulties. I *think* I may have figured out an answer to that though.
timotimo i find it a little bit uncool that the database would end up not readable by anything but moarvm + some nqp code
but the json slowness isn't something i'd like to keep around either 13:28

DrForr ruoso: You might want to check out github.com/drforr/perl6-ANTLR4 - It's got a subset that's almost EBNF.
ruoso Right, that's a slightly different thing... I'm not just trying to parse EBNF, I want to allow you to use EBNF grammars as native Perl6 grammars... github.com/ruoso/Grammar-EBNF/blob...ernation.t 15:47
but I may have misread the antlr module 15:48
ruoso taking a deeper look
dalek ast/date-time-slices-tz: 30171c1 | (Chris Jepeway)++ | S32-temporal/DateTime.t:
added tests that &.formatter is preserved by .later() -- b2gills++
ruoso yeah, what I'm trying to do is taking the next step from what perl6-ANTLR4 is doing... I chose EBNF because it is a pretty simplistic syntax
DrForr Well, I'm intent on taking the next step as well, it's just that I wanted to parse a decidedly non-trivial syntax. 15:52
ruoso ok, I actually already have the slang working, with the "ebnf-grammar" keyword (see the link to the test I posted) 15:53
I now need to actually translate the EBNF matching rules into Perl6 regexes
which is what github.com/ruoso/Grammar-EBNF/blob...Actions.pm is doing 15:54
DrForr Yeah, my actions file just translates to an AST, I was going to try subclassing that or walking t later to generate perl6. 15:55
ruoso oh, the thing is that the slang has to do it in a single pass, afaiu 15:56
15:56 liztormato left
DrForr That seems to be the mantra for perl6, yeah. 15:57

16:03 diana_olhovik_ left 16:05 rurban left
ruoso so, the issue I'm blocked on right now is that I can't find a way to dynamically create subrules... i.e.: create a regex with a named capture that should match from a regex that I have in a variable... 16:05
doing <::($name)> would be close (even if not supported by rakudo right now), but it still doesn't allow me to set a name for the capture 16:06
sorry, it's not a regex that I have... 16:07
what I have is the name of another rule to be invoked
DrForr I expect I'll be there in a few days :)
ruoso I'm thinking that I may have to create a faux regex object

ruoso can rule aliasing use a dynamic name? /$<$name>=$faux_regex/ creates a literal '$name' capture alias instead of interpolating the name... 16:48

so can jdv79 use strawberry, or do we need to have him get the free MS toolsuite.

ruoso yay... my subrule test now passes... used EVAL to compose the dynamic subrule aliasing... github.com/ruoso/Grammar-EBNF/blob..._subrule.t now passes 17:26
lizmat ruoso: at the PQAH, tadzik worked on dynamically adding rules for his BNF parsing module 17:31
perhaps that can be an inspiration not to have to use EVAL ?

colomon [Coke]: I tried to build rakudo-moar with Strawberry a few weeks ago, it failed. :( 17:41

jdv79 at least this hackathon has brought to my attention that i need to figure out the linux wireless on this box. i assumed there would be wired which works fine... 17:52

timotimo the only networking i've had to figure out in the last years was the one on my desktop when i installed windows and wired wasn't working 17:55
normal folks are used to nothing working on windows upon a fresh install, though. it just took me by surprise

timotimo that reminds me of the article written by a tesla driver about trying out an internal combustion engine car as if it were the first time they had heard about them 17:57
with things like "turns out no car manufacturer came up with the idea of building gas stations where you can fill up your car for free" 17:58
lizmat is looking forward to the time that a car with an internal combustion engine would be as strange as a steam-driven car is now
moritz is looking forward to the time when human-driven cars would be as strange as a steam-driven car is now 18:00
arnsholt I think the latter is going to happen before the former 18:01
And I'm not overly optimistic about the latter, TBH =/
ruoso lizmat: ah, interesting, we're implementing literally the same thing...
lizmat you mean you and tadzik? 18:02
ruoso yeah
lizmat yeah, felt like it
sort of saw the problems you had: was sitting next to tadzik when he had the same issues :-)
timotimo hehe.
lizmat m: sub a(Str:D $a?) {}; a # should probably be caught at compile time 18:05

rjbs So, I had a program that used to work in Rakudo, and stopped...
[Coke]++ helped me find the cause. I had a sub called "byte" which is now a reserved word.
But the error! Oh boy! 18:12
m: sub byte($i) { 1 } byte(5)
camelia rakudo-moar 56cae1: OUTPUT«5===SORRY!5=== Error while compiling /tmp/Keeei239hl␤Strange text after block (missing semicolon or comma?)␤at /tmp/Keeei239hl:1␤------> 3sub byte($i) { 1 }7⏏5 byte(5)␤ expecting any of:␤ infix␤ infix stopper␤ …»
rjbs Okay, well, that's going to be messing up something... but the error I get is not when defining sub byte, but when I call it. If I call byte(1) I get:
Cannot invoke this object (REPR: P6int, cs = 0)
ruoso sheesh... things that happen when you have too much delay in your ssh connection...

lizmat so, not a bug ? 19:04
the fact that the order matters, isn't a big thing?
