camelia rakudo-moar c2a57e: OUTPUT«1␤»
masak ok, old Rakudo.
lizmat: I don't think the fix in d5d93adcc30 goes to the root of the problem.
the above would be NaN on a new Rakudo, but... 05:19
m: say NaN.sign
camelia rakudo-moar c2a57e: OUTPUT«1␤»
masak still a problem.
I think the fix should be applied in src/core/Real.pm, the method that sign() delegates to
also, 05:20
multi method sign(Real:U:) { Mu }
I don't see why this has a claim to being Mu. Int sounds more reasonable to me. (the type object for the type being returned) 05:21
or possibly Num, since NaN is also in the codomain.
moritz or maybe Real 05:34
which can be either Int or Num
masak aye.
Mu is problematic -- can't store it in a lexical, for example. 05:35
m: say (my $x).WHAT
camelia rakudo-moar c2a57e: OUTPUT«(Any)␤»
moritz m: my $x = Mu 05:36
camelia ( no output )
moritz it's passing to a function that's problematic
m: sub f($x) { }; f Real.sign
camelia rakudo-moar c2a57e: OUTPUT«Type check failed in binding $x; expected 'Any' but got 'Mu'␤ in sub f at /tmp/WZoCkleQYr:1␤ in block <unit> at /tmp/WZoCkleQYr:1␤␤»

masak this feels like it's a rakudobug for either of two reasons.
(a) the default didn't apply, but it should 05:59
(b) you're not allowed to do that, but there's no error message
I kinda prefer (a), because it feels like it could be a useful thing to do sometimes -- to initialize several variables with the same default
but I confess to not knowing how tricky it'd be implementation-wise
one could argue that any trait in a declaration like that should just automatically distribute to all the declared variables 06:00
as if they'd been declared individually with `is default(42)`

masak jaffa4: you have data duplication between $NBODIES and @bodies. that's not a reason for your slowdown, but it's kinda weird in Perl 6. 08:02
jaffa4: maybe because you converted from an ancient language, like FORTRAN or C?
(where one needs to pass on the length of an array along with the array)
FROGGS lizmat: are you sad if I attempt a fix? 08:03
lizmat no, please do :-)
jaffa4 masak: yes, no reason
masak did you mean "no good reason"? :P
lizmat I'm just trying to do small things until I have a few days of consecutive quality time
jaffa4 no reson for slowdown
yes, it is translation from c 08:04
masak well, you can simplify that bit if you want.
the rest looks fairly straightforward. no big mistakes that might be the cause of the slowdown.
jaffa4 it is very slow

oh, jaffa4 isn't around any more
lizmat brrt: do tell :-) 10:27
yoleaux 09:47Z <brrt> lizmat: that i now know why we haven't implemented isatty yet :-P
timotimo .tell jaffa4 i found it a bit strange that you were using hashes for the bodies in your nbodies translation 10:28
yoleaux timotimo: I'll pass your message to jaffa4.
brrt long story short: we use libuv. libuv exposes two conflicting notions of the idea 'file stream'. One is the simple synchronous uv_file (always an int, always a file descriptor) and one is the uv_handle (a multiplexed magic wrapper for sockets, pipes, file streams, ttys, etc)
to determine if something is a tty, one uses the standard posix isatty() call on a posix file handle
uv_file behaves in all respects like a posix file handle 10:29
timotimo well, uv has this magical "guess handle type" function
we even use that in one spot to get the right type to build the stdin stream with
brrt uv_handle can resolve, if desired, to a posix file handle (now called a uv_os_fd_t), *if* you are on a unix system
10:30 Ven left
brrt on windows uv_handle resolves to a HANDLE, which is defined as an opaque void pointer, which may - depending on context - actually be an integer or may actually be a pointer, whatever the OS likes best 10:31
lizmat brrt: fwiw, isatty should only return true on the handle that has the default STDOUT / STDERR stream
brrt yes timotimo, and that function accepts an uv_file (i.e. an int)
lizmat in all other cases it should return false
timotimo hm, oh.
lizmat in my "world" :-)
10:31 chenryn left
brrt if i do "/dev/tty1/".IO.open.t that should be 'yes' 10:31
lizmat what you want to know, is whether there is potentially a person that with which you can interact 10:32
timotimo and if i do echo "hello" | perl6 -e ... it should be 'no' for stdin and if i do perl6 -e '...' > foobar, it should be 'no' for stdout
brrt exactly :-)
timotimo in my world that's exactly what "isatty" is for ... also i think you can't use tty-like stuff on such handles
using ansi escapes for colors for example, or placing the cursor "on the screen" 10:33
brrt that restricts isatty to syncfile structures
which, i suppose, is fair enough 10:35
and that means we'll only support getting a file descriptor on syncfiles
which i also suppose is reasonable
timotimo the profiler gets very upset with the nbodies program 10:39

timotimo i managed to reduce the number of BOOTCode allocations from 8060610 to 3860605, but at the same time, i got the number of Num allocations up from 7100430 to 6300430
oh, wait

Use a more elegant once block for the end
timotimo well, that lets it end up in 4th place
10:59 xinming joined
timotimo oh! 10:59
second place is the anonymous sub that implements METAOP_ASSIGN and that's in second place with 12%
so actually METAOP_ASSIGN ends up taking about 16.5% of the program's time 11:00
FROGGS timotimo: what's the program ooc? 11:02
timotimo i was taking jaffa4's nbody.p6 and turning the hashes into classes
lizmat looking at the METAOP subs, I wonder if it would be worthwhile to factor out the $triangle business in a separate candidate 11:03
timotimo postcircumfix:<{ }> used to be in second place at 10.3% and AT_KEY in 4th place (just above METAOP_ASSIGN) with 7.9%
timotimo has the brilliant idea to use native num instead of Real 11:05
5.37user 0.02system 0:05.40elapsed 99%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 77424maxresident)k 11:07
oh!7.80user 0.02system 0:07.83elapsed 99%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 96824maxresident)k
(without "oh!")
that's the improvement i got so far
oh holy wow. with the "better" version with native nums, the amount of spesh'd vs jitted frames is *much* worse, and there's a whole lot more allocations and GCs, but it's still faster 11:10
what the ... find_method gets invoked? 11:12
FROGGS hmmm, sounds like you get quite some insights currently :o) 11:13
timotimo well, the not jitting is possibly because of NumAttrRef and related ops, maybe those aren't implemented yet; the jit log will tell me in a second.
BAIL: op <getattrsref_n> 11:15
should be easy enough.
FROGGS that's what I was hoping for :o)

Ven weird, I recompiled everything an hour ago :|

seems like I was just missing a panda rebootstrap 11:51
dalek kudo/nom: d4dcca7 | lizmat++ | src/core/metaops.pm:

The short-term win is about 4% in each call without :triangle. The longer term win is that we can now easily add optimized candidates for e.g. [+].
Ven lizmat: :triangle is [\+]? 11:54
lizmat I think so 11:55
Ven which makes me realize there's no syntax for named "matching". what I mean is that this works:
m: multi foo(True){1}; multi foo($){0}; say foo(True);
camelia rakudo-moar c2a57e: OUTPUT«1␤»
Ven but this doesn't:

FROGGS Ven: I like that syntax fwiw
Ven lizmat: I know it is
I'm just making a parallel between named and positional params :)
FROGGS: nice :)
FROGGS Ven: and it fits the concept of what we do with pairs usually 11:58
though one could argue that the value of that pair is not a matcher but the default value
Ven we have a syntax for default values already, though 12:00

Looks like my MMDing of METAOPs is doing bad things on the JVM :-(

lizmat dilemma: do I just revert, or do I re-instate the old code for the JVM and the new code for Moar ? 12:14
