tushar I would like to add an element in an array at specific index. When I add the element, I don't want to replace the old element value with new rather I would like to shift the elements to the right. I hope that make sense. How can I achieve that? E.g. "Input --> my @a = [1,2,3]; --- add element at specific index and shift other elements on right -- @a = [1,4,2,3]" 00:45
timotimo that's what splice is for 00:47
geekosaur docs.perl6.org/type/Array#routine_splice
timotimo splice is really "at index i, remove n elements and replace them with this list: ..."
so you'll just be removing 0 elements
tushar timotimo: I thought so.. Thanks.. 00:48

MasterDuke tushar: that's an example of the single argument rule in action 01:22

bstamour Quick question for anyone who can help me out. What does the line "use v6" actually do?
Does it matter if I only run my scripts through a perl 6 interpreter?
BenGoldberg Nothing, except that it makes perl5 bail out.
bstamour Ah, so in case I accidentally fire it through the wrong program 01:30
Thank you
BenGoldberg Right. Many perl5 and perl6 modules end in .pm or .pl
01:30 dj_goku joined
bstamour Makes sense. 01:30
AlexDaniel it makes sense to use .pm6 and .p6 ;)
BenGoldberg The newest version of perl5 will automatically use the C-level exec() function to replace itself with perl6, if the first line starts with a # and contains 'perl6' somewhere in it. 01:31

AlexDaniel unique has a very useful :as parameter

just imagine: @a.max(as => *.chars)
very readable, no *.chars ><= *.chars crap

bdmatatu: right now it's a little tricky to have automatic tests for not being on Rakudo tho (hence my unwise-remark) 13:02
bdmatatu gfldex: unfortunately it only seems to work for utf-8, so this makes it unsuitable for hmac (since it calls the hash twice, once with potentially invalid utf-8 bytes) 13:03

perlpilot bdmatatu: I'd guess that the underlying sha1 implementation works on arbitrary octets and the only reason nqp::sha1 says anything about UTF-8 is because you have to feed it a str. Maybe someone could change it to be encoding agnostic? 13:11

andrzejku nap is something similar to perl? 13:48
13:48 djbkd left
andrzejku nqp 13:48
timotimo "not quite perl6"
it's what we use to implement rakudo 13:49
andrzejku rakudo is perl6?
timotimo rakudo is our perl6 compiler
andrzejku okay
timotimo there used to be other projects, but only rakudo remains in active development
13:50 skids joined
andrzejku why nqp was invented at all? 13:50
why just not to write perl6 interpreter
in C or C++
timotimo rakudo started on Parrot. it would have been terrible to write rakudo completely in parrot's assembly-language
andrzejku and when the basic Perl6 things were implemented "they" will be used to implement standard library 13:51
timotimo there's currently a project that writes a perl6 compiler in C++
andrzejku ohh 13:52
timotimo, I am looking for it
where can I find it?

hackedNODE andrzejku: one of the benefits is the compiler is more accessible to Perl 6 *users* to hack on. nqp really has a feel of a Perl 6 module for a lot of things. The grammar that parses Perl 6 is pretty much the same grammar users of Perl 6 use, etc. Many parts of Rakudo would require knowledge of Perl 6 only to modify, and the end-goal is to as much as possible of Rakudo in Perl 6. 14:08

timotimo on the other hand, making it easier for users to change rakudo and nqp for their purposes is also good

hackedNODE andrzejku: I'm not sure what you mean by "modify for fun". The implication being that making the codebase more accessible somehow makes it more prone to unauthorized edits? :) 14:20
14:21 djbkd left
timotimo open source software is super insecure because anyone can just go and edit the code! 14:21
andrzejku I don't mean prone
timotimo imagine all the backdoors and viruses you get!
grondilu is currently writing some javascript and misses a lot of perl6 features, but when he reads about ES6 he realizes that most of these features are in ES6 or will come soon.
hackedNODE andrzejku: making the compiler in Perl 6 makes the number of people capable of improving the compiler proportionate to the number of people interested in those improvements.
andrzejku I think it makes Perl much more slower 14:22
skids Until the compiler is improved, sure :-)
hackedNODE andrzejku: slower to... what?
grondilu basically is wishing whoever designs javascript would just decide ES7 would be Perl 6 :)
14:23 djbkd joined
andrzejku I think it will be better to implement the basic command staff in native language and then add language extension which can be made in Perl using previously implemented things 14:23
hackedNODE andrzejku: MoarVM is written in C
andrzejku right now thinks looks odd
but why MoarVM take so strange staff 14:24
timotimo ?
hackedNODE andrzejku: I'm not understanding what you mean. What strange stuff?
andrzejku moarvm it is just interpreter for nqp 14:25
skids Unfortunately we are a long way off from rewriting MoarVM in Perl6, you just have to look at how much is invested in cc optimization/binfmt handling to see that.
hackedNODE andrzejku: I can put it another way: why aren't you writing EVEYRTHING in C? You know, 'cause the rest of the langs make things slower. There are many benefits.
timotimo for nqp and rakudo

hackedNODE andrzejku: moarvm is a VM that can run QAST generated by nqp. nqp is a compiler tool chain. Rakudo is a compiler written using that toolchain.
andrzejku: and what you're imagining is it's better to write Rakudo in C. Which would be a monstrous effort and would make it accessible to a handful of people, but then we'd have a faster perl. 14:27
andrzejku okay
hackedNODE andrzejku: timotimo already mentioned recent effort to do just that, and the person gave up when they realized the amount of work involved. 14:28
timotimo honestly, having good performance for perl6 is mostly about dynamic optimization
andrzejku so Perl6 should be slower by design?
hackedNODE andrzejku: "slower" than what?
andrzejku slower than Swift for ex.
hackedNODE andrzejku: "slower" at what?
andrzejku slower at all
tadzik the answer to "why don't we write all compilers in C" is really the same as to "why do we not write everything in C in the first place"
timotimo we're already faster at some things compared to perl5, and perl5 is written in C 14:29
14:29 pmurias joined
arnsholt The basic architecture of Perl 6 is broadly the same as used in most other VM-backed languages 14:30
There's a compiler, and it generates bytecodes for the target VM
mspo timotimo: really?
dalek c: d5272a6 | MasterDuke17++ | doc/Programs/00-running.pod6:
Update the description text for 00-running.pod6

It now matches what Rakudo currently shows.
hackedNODE andrzejku: omg what? What is it faster at? I can write a Perl 6 program twice as fast than the same program in Perl 5, so the person paying me for that job will have to spend half the money to receive the program they want. Comparing fastness of languages is nonsensical. There's a good saying: "Premature optimization is the root of all evil" and you're trying to optimize code you haven't even thought about
writing yet.

tbrowder trying to demo an LTA error msg... 14:31
hackedNODE andrzejku: saying X is faster than Y is useless without context and code's purpose.
andrzejku hackedNODE, okay but think why Perl6 is not used on ARM chips?
arnsholt The presence of NQP as a language specifically for implementing compilers is perhaps a bit different, but that's mostly due to the dynamism of Perl 6 making it really hard to directly implement a bootstrapping Perl 6 compiler
andrzejku and Python? yes

tbrowder arnsholt: thanks! that error helps not a bit for a newbie; i added an example in the docs this morning to show how to get a type constraint on an optional arg:
hackedNODE Yeah, seems fixed. I think that one took ages to parse even with a few hundred prints and I'm not seeing the ticket on perl6.fail 14:36
pmurias andrzejku: and a huge reason why the Rakudo is written in nqp is to allow extending of Perl 6 language by modules/slangs
timotimo mspo: 6guts.wordpress.com/2016/03/06/dig...lity-work/ this one, too
DrForr andrzejku: Perl6 has been cross-compiled to ARM; there was a talk at YAPC::EU on it.
