Zoffix Because then the number looks longer (and bigger) :)
00:29 Actualeyes joined
timotimo right, you want it to seem smaller than it is 00:30
because it's a cost to others 00:31

Zoffix Another trick is to show a large number before the price (or show larger price first) to make smaller sums feels smaller than they are because our brains are wired to see stuff relative to each other. 00:35

parsonsNose what did I misunderstand about $* ? 00:42
any fule no that you can declare a variable in a higher-level lexical scope and assign later. Cool. But, I thought with the $* stuff we could assign _and_ instantiate from an inner lexical scope :/ 00:44
timotimo it will only be available in things called by bar in your example
parsonsNose ahhh
timotimo i.e. it looks up the call stack
parsonsNose so it doesn't need to be passed explicitly, but it won't propogate out?
makes sense now

timotimo well, dynamic variables are dynamic, which is the opposite of static :)
parsonsNose to allow us to define something that can be 'typed properly at runtime'
yeah, fair. I'm just experimenting with them today :)

b2gills Perl 6 is a static language that tries to be a dynamic one, and it does it to such an extent that some static things become harder
lookatme scala ? the Perl 8 ?
parsonsNose scala is one of the best 3 languages on the JVM if you count perl6 ;) 01:04
the other being clojure, Java sucks
but i'm surprised by that last output
that's actually kinda impressive 01:05

jkramer Any ideas how I can solve that supply problem here? I want a way to stop the thread/loop in read-keys from the outside so it can recover the original termios flags and stop reading from $*IN 14:08
A completely different approach would be fine too :) 14:09
moritz the obvious thing to do would be to replace the loop { ... } with a while $should-read { ... } 14:12
jnthn Well, `return $supplier.Supply.on-close({ ...code here... });` gives you a way to run a callback when the supply is closed
moritz and then set $should-read = 0 if you want it to stop
jnthn Uh, tap is closed
The `done` automatically cuases all taps to be closed 14:13
Then combine that with what moritz said :)
14:13 zakharyas left
jkramer jnthn: Oh I think I misunderstood on-close then. I thought it's executed when the Supplier is closed 14:14
jnthn There's no such thing as a Supplier being closed 14:15
What get closed is a tap on the Supply
Thus why the .on-close comes after the .Supply
jkramer Woah, works perfectly! :) Thanks moritz & jnthn 14:17
14:20 kaare_ left
jnthn Now, can anybody explain why it works perfectly? :-) 14:20
jkramer I already moved on to other problems ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 14:22
What's nicer? 'whenever read-keys', 'whenever key-press' or 'whenever key-pressed'? 14:24
I think it should be one of the latter two, but can't decide :)
Zoffix 'cause the on-close callback that closed over $should-read var changes it to not read it anymore when done is called (and tap is closed) and the thing ends
jnthn Events are things that have undisputably happened, so past tense makes most sense to me
jkramer Yup, agreed
jnthn Zoffix: Yes; also `emit` runs the code in the downstream `whenever`, which calls `done`, which will `close`, which in turn means that it's false reliably before that loop test runs again :) 14:26
Zoffix :) 14:27

mcmillhj Can someone explain to me why this: gist.github.com/mcmillhj/57a4e81cf...bcf4563da1 returns a Seq and not a List? I expected it to return a List 14:28
yoleaux 26 Apr 2018 20:34Z <Zoffix> mcmillhj: You can use Arrays for hash keys, but it's likely to be pain, since they're not value types (so you'd have to use the same Array object to do the lookup, not one that just has the same values). Also, you need to place it into a Scalar container to tell the compiler you want to treat it as one item (the key) instead of a list of keys. Lastly, by default hashes stringigfy keys, so you'll need to
26 Apr 2018 20:34Z <Zoffix> mcmillhj: use object hashes: m: my @a = <a b c>; (my %h{Array}){$@a} = 42; %h{$@a}.say

jnthn m: say "Unicode ist scheiße".uc
jnthn :P

jkramer Oh well I guess there's a difference between "uppercase" and "capital" 14:32
Since uppercase ß doesn't exist in the wild, just as capital in titles or whatever
mcmillhj Zoffix: oooh, that will teach me not to look at reverse's signature. :\ Thanks 14:33
14:36 caa51h joined
jnthn Things that can lazily produce the result will tend to return a Seq. In this case, it means `for @million-element-thing.reverse { }` doesn't need to create a second million-element thing in memory to iterate in reverse, and can just go through the existing thing backwards. 14:37

Zoffix / is writing `-` all over instead of `_` 14:56
Zoffix is writing `-` all over instead of `_`
jnthn Ah, the 5/6 switching fun :) 14:59
mcmillhj jnthn: how does that work with things like infinite lists? 15:00
jnthn I managed to write . for concat in Perl 6 a few times earlier this week :)
15:00 TimToady joined
jnthn I noticed pretty quick though...was dogfooding Comma and it stuck a nice red underline under it for me. :) 15:01
Zoffix mcmillhj: it doesn't :)
m: (1…Inf).reverse
camelia Cannot reverse a lazy list
in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1
Zoffix jnthn: nice :)
mcmillhj Zoffix: reverse 1..* returns an infinite list
FROGGS jnthn: and I'll be able to buy comma next week? 15:02
mcmillhj Zoffix: I figured, was just wondering
15:02 Herby_ left
Zoffix mcmillhj: in that case, the source is a Range, so it knows how to produce the reverse of it 15:02
Range object, I mean
TimToady yoleaux: .botsnack
yoleaux 26 Apr 2018 13:50Z <Zoffix> TimToady: are language mutations supposed to propagate to EVAL (e.g. sub infix:<♥> { say $^a + $^b }; 'say 2 ♥ 42'.EVAL) ? I see &EVAL tries to find LANG, but dumping it even at begin time seems to always show Nil: github.com/rakudo/rakudo/blob/29b0...m6#L54-L66
mcmillhj ah I see, the result is similarly not useful though :) 15:03
jnthn FROGGS: Not quite that soon, but "sometime in May" is still looking good.
TimToady Zoffix: yes, EVAL is supposed to use the current language 15:04
comborico1611_ I'm finding perl6intro.com to be exactly what I needed. Someone tell hankache he needs to write a Perl6 book!
jnthn I thought `EVAL` did use the current language in the past :S
FROGGS jnthn: because if when I'm quite happy with the IDEs I use, it kinda sucks when they see a .y method call and format it like P5's y///
jnthn I'm sure I did the stuff to make that work even
TimToady /metoo
FROGGS which means it takes whatever comes after the .y as delim -.- 15:05
jnthn (Poke stuff into %?LANG)
FROGGS: argh, yes
TimToady well, we use $?LANG now, but yes
jnthn should keep up :)
Zoffix uhh 15:06
TimToady the braid is now internal to the current language object
Zoffix m: sub infix:<♥> { say $^a + $^b }; q|say 2 ♥ 42|.EVAL
camelia 44
Zoffix ... seems to work now :/
m: sub infix:<♥> { say $^a + $^b }; 'say 2 ♥ 42'.EVAL
camelia 44
Zoffix m: sub put(|) { say "no say for you!" }; try q|put 42|.EVAL; say $!.^name;
camelia no say for you!
TimToady "O see, can you say, by the dawn's early light..." 15:08
well, it's still early here, but maybe not in Canada 15:09
Zoffix Don't see any bugs in the original log either, so I guess that was just a brainfart :)
TimToady I'd think a whole bunch of tests would fail if that brake 15:12
operator-overloading.t uses plenty of EVALs 15:13
that's not to say we might not have spots where we still lose track of the current language, but I doubt it's pervasive 15:14
Zoffix comborico1611_: you can tell yourself. Just use the .tell bot command (or twitter) 15:15
comborico1611_ I don't follow. 15:16
Zoffix .tell comborico1611_ Use the bot, Luke!
yoleaux Zoffix: I'll pass your message to comborico1611_.
comborico1611_ Heh. Why would I need to tell myself?
yoleaux 15:16Z <Zoffix> comborico1611_: Use the bot, Luke!
Zoffix and twitter.com/hankache
comborico1611_ No Twitter account. 15:17
Zoffix comborico1611_: that was in response to "comborico1+│ I'm finding perl6intro.com to be exactly what I needed. Someone tell hankache he needs to write a Perl6 book!"
TimToady he meant "you can tell him yourself", but he accidentally a word
comborico1611_ I see.
But I don't have much influence. 15:18
.tell hankache I'm finding perl6intro.com to be exactly what I needed. You need to write a Perl6 book!"
yoleaux comborico1611_: I'll pass your message to hankache.

comborico1611_ TimToady: Top 5 most readable programming languages? Please reserve only one slot for snide remark. 15:19
Just curious on your opinion. Readable doesn't take into account unknowledgeable. As in, this is the easiest to read if a person doesn't actually know the coding system. 15:20
TimToady you just contradicted yourself :) 15:21
comborico1611_ I don't think so. Perl people consider to not be readable, but it is readable to those who know it.
TimToady oh, I read "doesn't take into account" the other way 15:22
comborico1611_ Perl -- people consider..
Zoffix Same with python
mcmillhj I find it difficult to read most things I don't know :)
Zoffix Compare this Python to the Perl 6 version below :) en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C3_lineariza..._in_Python 15:23
TimToady I'd say there are languages that have the reputation of being readable because they're made more out of words, but that just means the misunderstandings are misunderstood more :)
comborico1611_ mcmillhj: Of the coding systems (languages) you do know, which are the easiest to read?
TimToady just people people think they know what a word means doesn't mean that they actually know what the word means to the computer
so in some sense it's more deceptive
Zoffix Yeah, and would still need to look up: arguments, return types, special cases
TimToady (to have misleading words) 15:24
jnthn Curiously, Perl is easiest on my (not very good) eyes, because differnet things look different, rather than being a wall of words. :)
comborico1611_ Yes, when I was studying Common Lisp recently, I opted to put $ sigil before parameters and variables, because everything is a word in CL.
TimToady well, that's one of our design principles, but people seem to like words even when they are getting fooled
*some people
whereas we think that if you don't understand something, it should look like you don't understand it :) 15:25

El_Che today was a fun day. Writing snippets in a language you don't really know. Trial and error to the max (Jenkins pipeline in a DSL as subset of groovy) 16:02
16:02 mcmillhj left 16:03 Zoffix left
jmerelo groovy looks like a groovy language 16:03
El_Che it's a java beverages with grinded rubies at the bottom (they don't say on top) 16:04
thing is that when you program-by-stackoverflow you end up adding groovy stuff that the DSL doesn't allow (it's a sandbox as well) 16:05
jmerelo I bet rubies don't make java beverages any better
El_Che you get a sexy voice
that must count for something
jmerelo El_Che: :-)

jmerelo Slow evening, so let's year your opinion on this issue github.com/perl6/doc/issues/1970 raised by Zoffix 17:17
And while you're at that, take a look at this github.com/perl6/doc/issues/1966 proposed by YT 17:18
Geth doc: JJ self-assigned /language/contributors hasn't been updated in ages github.com/perl6/doc/issues/1970
9dfce1096b | (JJ Merelo)++ | 3 files

And some exceptions in the author tests that referenced it. Closes #1970

Geth doc/fix-indexing: fa7985ffc5 | (Zoffix Znet)++ | htmlify.p6
Get rid of fatal error silencers

  - Get rid of all Promise.alloffs
  - Catch the error that currently kills indexing
   and make it spew full details (likely can remove the
   catcher in later commits; catching right now to not abort
   the build and weed out all the things that make it throw)
doc/fix-indexing: db44916e95 | (Zoffix Znet)++ | htmlify.p6
Don't crash on empty X<> text

In many places we insert an invisible indexing marker, for which
  .content[0] is an Any and it crashes when we try to stick that
Any into a place that expects a Str:D
jmerelo Wow, that's big 17:50
Zoffix++ 17:51
.tell zoffix to remember and refer to the different htmlify.p6 issues when merging 17:52
yoleaux jmerelo: I'll pass your message to zoffix.
jmerelo .tell zoffix also that [Coke] is working on that same file on coke/build. Far as I can tell, not touching the same lines, but better be aware of that. 17:56
yoleaux jmerelo: I'll pass your message to zoffix.

Use more robust X<> unpacker

We might have nested pod codes inside; don't assume it's just text

Use more robust textifier in one more branch
rindolf hi all
jmerelo hi! 18:23
rindolf jmerelo: sup?
jmerelo Well, httpbin has moved to https-only and we're dealing with the fallout in modules testing here. Just your average Friday evening.
rindolf jmerelo: ah 18:24
El_Che everything I open github I see a notification with pod6 problems. Maybe time to move to md
El_Che ducks
jmerelo El_Che: and use only vim for edits.
El_Che: man, that error in your travis... error: pathspec '2018.05' did not match any file(s) known to git. 18:25
El_Che jmerelo: any capable editor/ide in the planet has good md support
rindolf El_Che: heh
El_Che jmerelo: found the workaround
jmerelo El_Che: you werere future-proofing your stuff, right?
rindolf El_Che: i have a hate/love relationship with markdown
El_Che jmerelo: it's not for me, but for rakudo's release manager. A canary
jmerelo El_Che: nice birds. 18:26
El_Che rindolf: the only format I seem to like is yaml :)
but documenting code in pod[56] is a pain

El_Che I can understand java and code documentation just above a method, that's nice 18:27
in Perl you get to right a book
and it breaks the code flow for me
so it ends in an other file
18:27 TEttinger joined
jmerelo That's literate programming. Haskell has it. We have to do one better. 18:27
El_Che and since it's in an other file, it can be md
jmerelo: you don't need to document haskell 18:28
the code represent the natural state of all things
what was, what is, what will e

18:29 Exodist joined
jmerelo But I don't see you panicking nearly enough. LWP::Simple is going to have to be installed using --force all over again 18:33
That will break every single test in perl6/doc. Luckily we have the docker and package working 18:34

El_Che IO::Socket::SSL 18:37
jmerelo That's not the problem. The tests were changed to http-only. But now httpbin redirects to httpbin
El_Che looks like a missing dep?
(or a broken test that tests it anyway while it knows it's missing?) 18:38
jmerelo you look at the code, it's http. It's changed, well, a couple of hours ago.
El_Che pinning versions is maybe a good idea 18:39
jmerelo El_Che: we did that a few days ago, after tests were changed, if you mean lwp::Simple versions.
El_Che I mean can lw::simple version be pinned 18:40
