TimToady .tell jnthn I think it would be sanest if submethods do not compose like methods, but have some mechanism for getting themselves all called at the same time as the corresponding class submethod in either build-ish or destroy-ish order as pseudo-parents located between this class and its actuall parents 00:19
yoleaux TimToady: I'll pass your message to jnthn.

ugexe my $proc = Proc::Async.new("echo","foo","bar"); $proc.stdout.tap(-> $v { print "Output: $v" }); say "Starting..."; my $promise = $proc.start; await $promise; say "Done"; 01:40
01:41 smls left
ugexe a recent change appears to make that stuck in await 01:41
in the last 24-36 hours i would guess 01:42
zostay is there a way to interrupt a thread in P6? say to cause a long running operation to timeout? 01:43
as you might do with a SIGALRM in P5 01:44
TimToady ugexe: Proc::Async has been unstable for a long time, but a recent change to avoid spinlocks has exposed some failure modes 01:45
ugexe ah. im not sure what a failure mode is, but it looks like the Promise just stays as Planned 01:47
TimToady zostay: we don't actually deal directly with threads much in P6; work gets assigned to worker threads as needed; if you want to interrupt the execution of a promise, you can interrogate a supply (such as the Signal supply) for async events 01:48
well, "interrogate" is the wrong word...
ugexe: otoh, the restart-concurrent test seems to be hanging consistently now, so maybe you're onto something... 01:50
zostay ok... i think what i want to know is if i can cause a blocking read to exit with EINTR
TimToady dinner & 01:51
zostay (or blocking write or whatever system like call)

gagalicious hi i'm a hard core perl5 programmer. is there anything i u guys would like to tell me what i am missing here on perl6 which i cant do on perl5? 02:08
skids gagalicious: are you a Moo/Moose user in P5? 02:12
gagalicious nope
what's that?
skids It's a module that adds a lot of OO niceness. 02:13
So you are mostly a perl5 core user, then, right?
TimToady what kind of data do you deal with, mostly?
certain kinds of math are a lot nicer in P6 02:14
m: say 1, 1, *+* ... *
camelia rakudo-moar c2a57e: OUTPUT«1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55 89 144 233 377 610 987 1597 2584 4181 6765 10946 17711 28657 46368 75025 121393 196418 317811 514229 832040 1346269 2178309 3524578 5702887 9227465 14930352 24157817 39088169 63245986 102334155 165580141 267914296 433494437 70140873…»
TimToady like there's a fibonacci series
m: say [*] 1..10 02:15
camelia rakudo-moar c2a57e: OUTPUT«3628800␤»
TimToady there's 10 factorial
02:15 yqt left
TimToady p6 arguably has better Unicode support now, if you're into text processing 02:15
skids There are better control structures and loop handling. 02:16
gagalicious yeah perl5 me
TimToady there's more "everything is an object", if you're into OO, and if you're not into OO, you can still pretend numbers aren't objects :)
it's also easier to do functional programming, if you're into that 02:17
gagalicious better unicode? i havent come across any major issues in perl5
i dont really like the reliance on object too much.. not everything for sure. 02:18
02:18 vendethiel joined
TimToady well, the main thing is the runtime is never confused about whether a string is text or binary in p6 02:18
02:18 jack_rabbit left
TimToady whereas p5 can get confused about that 02:18
but p6 also has better support for languages that use lots of diacritics 02:19
this shows up more outside the typical latin-1 langauges though
skids m: for flat ^5 Z "a".."d" -> $a, $b { "$a $b".say }; # multiple loop control variables are easy 02:20
camelia rakudo-moar c2a57e: OUTPUT«0 a␤1 b␤2 c␤3 d␤»
TimToady and most USians say "What's with these fancy accents? Why can't people just ASCII like normal people?"
*use ASCII
so we wouldn't tend to notice the internationalization support 02:21
gagalicious: you also don't have to memorize so many things, like which functions take $_ for a default 02:22
skids m: say gather while (++$ < 4) { "HERE".say; take 42; "THERE".say }; # You can take results from the middle of loops like this 02:23
camelia rakudo-moar c2a57e: OUTPUT«HERE␤THERE␤HERE␤THERE␤HERE␤THERE␤42 42 42␤»
TimToady p5 has 15 or so magical symbols like STDOUT that span all packages
in p6 global symbols are specially marked 02:24
$*OUT instead of STDOUT
so that's another list you don't have to remember
02:24 kurahaupo joined
TimToady p6 also tends to have better error messages, generally 02:25
02:25 [Sno] joined
raydiak don't forget the way more awesomer regexes 02:25
skids m: say <jack queen king> X~ "of" X~ <diamonds hearts> # it is very easy to generate all sorts of things
camelia rakudo-moar c2a57e: OUTPUT«jackofdiamonds jackofhearts queenofdiamonds queenofhearts kingofdiamonds kingofhearts␤»
02:25 ][Sno][ left
TimToady raydiak: that too :) 02:25
raydiak and grammars
TimToady p6 has better extensibility 02:26
m: sub postfix:<!>($x) { [*] 2..$x }; say 42! 02:27
camelia rakudo-moar c2a57e: OUTPUT«1405006117752879898543142606244511569936384000000000␤»
TimToady so it's easy to write your own operators, like factorial there
and you'll notice the precision doesn't max out at 32 or 64 bits
decommute & 02:28
skids m: multi sub f ( $x where * > 5 ) { "LOTS".say }; multi sub f ($x where 1 < *) { $x.say }; f(6); f(4); f(0); # you can separate up those subs that do different things based on input, and also get good error messages for out-of-domain arguments 02:32
camelia rakudo-moar c2a57e: OUTPUT«LOTS␤4␤Cannot call f(0); none of these signatures match:␤ (Any $x where { ... })␤ (Any $x where { ... })␤ in block <unit> at /tmp/5vQilEsxZS:1␤␤»
skids gagalicious: you can use as much or as little type-checking as you want for you particular purpose 02:33
02:35 rmgk_ joined, rmgk left, rmgk_ is now known as rmgk
gagalicious i thought type check is supposed to speed up an app... but i heard perl6 is slower than perl5. is that right/ 02:35
i like perl5 coz there's no type checking in the first place... if only perl6 built in a type check optimizer.. that'll make it better. 02:36
skids gagalicious: Currently perl6 is slower than perl5 but faster mostly than perl5+Moose so it depends what features you need. P6 is much faster than it was a month ago and keeps getting faster. Some of that is because the type-checking optimizations are starting to get impleented. 02:38
02:38 noganex_ joined
skids gagalicious: one of the first things new P6 users notice is much better error messages that help you correct mistakes faster. 02:40
m: sub foobar { 1 }; fooobar(); 02:41
camelia rakudo-moar c2a57e: OUTPUT«5===SORRY!5=== Error while compiling /tmp/ZCULqCYlKQ␤Undeclared routine:␤ fooobar used at line 1. Did you mean 'foobar'?␤␤»
02:41 noganex left, kaare_ joined 02:42 vendethiel left
skids And you can use type checking to help you find errors before the code is actually run, if you like. 02:44

brrt web is kind of broad these days. it used to be 'CGI scripts', today it may mean 'i want something like rails' or 'i want something like flask/sinatra', or even 'something like php' 10:30
as far as i know, not a lot of people are using perl6 in any of these capacities yet
moritz {doc,modules}.perl6.org is statically generated pages, and generated by Perl 6 scripts
brrt what people are doing is creating static site generators using perl6
moritz as is strangelyconsistent.org

DrForr Using it right now as it happens.
hahainternet Emeric: can i ask why you're asking these questions? they seem like a survey question more than a practical one
moritz Emeric: Perl 6 is an OO language at its very core
ever non-trivial piece of Perl 6 code that I write is OO 10:48
DrForr And no need to use the past tense, it's very much alive.

Emeric I'm just trying to inform me about what is done with Perl. And sorry, I'dont speak english very well... 10:50
DrForr Plenty of stuff, though if you're looking for large-scale implementation and huge websites, look at perl5.
Emeric And I hope it's still alive !
DrForr At least for the moment :) 10:51
hahainternet Emeric: in my uninformed opinion, Perl 6 currently occupies roughly the niche that Perl 5 does, but it is slowly expanding to support every relatively high-level niche i know of
DrForr Incidentally the perl6 ANTLR -> Perl6 converter is almost done.
hahainternet DrForr: fancy, there's EBNF too isn't there 10:52
that blew my mind
DrForr EBNF, ABNF, C++, Java...
hahainternet 's head explodes
DrForr It mostly won't run without tweaking because ANTLR4 and Perl6 aren't an exact match, but it'll handle most of the constructs. 10:53
hahainternet oh? i don't know the difference, haven't had much p6 time and no ANTLR time 10:54
DrForr ANTLR4 is closer to yacc in that it lets you do code that messes with the parsing stack inline. 10:55
smls_ Is there a way to get the function object &foo from the string "foo" without EVAL?
10:56 smls_ is now known as smls
moritz smls: &::('foo') 10:56
smls oh, right.
DrForr But it'll work well enough that you can take an ANTLR C# grammar, convert it and get something that looks like perl6 without faffing about.
smls does it work with operators too?
m: say &::("infix:<~>") 10:57

moritz AlexDaniel: my &Test; if True { &Test := anon sub Test { say 'hello' } } 11:41
the "anon sub Test" construct is a subroutine that isn't automatically installed in the surrounding lexical scope ("anon"), but still knows its own name when introspected 11:42

moritz AlexDaniel: ok, use assignment instead
though the error looks a bit fishy to me. Why shouldn't you be able to bind here?
(if there's no extra container level, it should be assignment that's forbidden, not binding) 11:47
AlexDaniel moritz: well, if you think that it's an error than you should probably report it yourself, I don't think that I can phrase what is going on here :) 11:48
moritz AlexDaniel: I probably should
AlexDaniel this is fun, but it does not satisfy my original crazy intent. I'm trying to change the grammar in run-time (have no idea if that is even possible), depending on something that is not available in compile-time. I have no useful intent but I'm just trying to see what is possible, so I took a simple example of sub postfix:<!> { [*] 1..$^n }; and tried placing it into some block after "if", but it seems like it is lexically scoped so it 11:54
does not really do what I want it to do. That anon thing, obviously, is not going to work, as far as I can see. Any ideas?

[cookbook] remove temporary files created from scripts

Some scripts generate temporary files that shouldn't be cleaned up in the script themselves (it wouldn't make sense in the context of the example). Nevertheless, this leaves temporary files lying around on the filesystem after running the test suite, thus the tests now clean these files up.
