guifa I decided to try my hand at some code golf for which a Bag would be quite optimal... except that it generates from a list using === to determine initial weights, not eqv or cmp, which bombs if being passed an list of arrays of numbers. Is there any way to (briefly, being golf) generate a bag using eqv/cmp? 00:06

skrshn Hi, I am trying to build rakudo for my company's internal distribution system 07:12
The rakudo package can be consumed by different environments which also determine the path where rakudo files gets placed 07:14
When building perl, someone wrote hacks so that, while building, perl was built using these options: 07:15
-Darchname="$PERL_ARCH" \ -Dinstallbin="$BUILD_ROOT/perl/perl/bin/perl5.8" \ -Dinstallman1dir="$BUILD_ROOT/perl/perl/lib/perl5.8-dist/man/man1" \ -Dinstallman3dir="$BUILD_ROOT/perl/perl/lib/perl5.8-dist/man/man3" \ -Dinstallprefix="$BUILD_ROOT/perl" \ -Dinstallprivlib="$BUILD_ROOT/perl/perl/lib/perl5.8-dist" \ -Dinstallscript="$BUILD_ROOT/perl/perl/bin/perl5.8" \ 07:16
does not show up right
Basically, the prefix had -Dinstallprefix="$BUILD_ROOT/perl" 07:17
But in order to prevent any inadvertant files getting read during runtime, this was set - -Dprefix="/dev/null" 07:18
At runtime, the paths were properly massaged with the right locations
I am trying to do the same for rakudo/moar build 07:19
But I do not see parallel options for -Dinstall* and -D* where * is ("prefix", "siteman1dir", "sitebin", etc) 07:20
07:21 loops left
skrshn Basically, how do I accomplish the distinction between install path and compiled path for searching during runtime ? 07:21
Btw, Happy New Year to all of you fine folks! 07:23

Are you ready?
These are the stats for the visits for the Advent Calendar this year, including last month: perl6advent.files.wordpress.com/20...120236.png 11:07
They're almost half of what they were last year. We need to market a bit more our stuff...
It's been saved in part by the publication in Slashdot. They would have been totally dismal if that hadn't happened. 11:08
This is the breakdown of visits per year perl6advent.files.wordpress.com/20...120948.png Less visits than in 2010, and going down steadily since 2015. 11:12
Any thoughts on that? 11:13
AlexDaniel I guess something special happened in 2015!
;) ;) ;)
jmerelo AlexDaniel: and it became increasingly less special...
El_Che that's not a lot 11:14
jmerelo El_Che: this year, as a matter of fact, the post with the most visits has been one written another year... 11:16
AlexDaniel jmerelo: I'd agree with that statement. I think Raku & Rakudo development is very steady (in a good way)
jmerelo AlexDaniel: while that's probably true, it does not apply to the rest of the ecosystem. And has nothing to do with the marketing side, of which the Advent Calendar is a part. 11:17
AlexDaniel jmerelo: so every month you get a better compiler. If you want more hype let's make it once a year :D
v6.d was released very quietly though
jmerelo AlexDaniel: the release was buried by a controversy that probably didn't help anyone or anything 11:18
AlexDaniel and by that I mean that you couldn't hear anything because of all the screams related to “Raku”
jmerelo Precisely
El_Che I wrote my 2c alson on wordpress :) 11:19
jmerelo Maybe the selection of articles was not optimal. I mean, it was basically you want to write something, here's your WP ID. Maybe we should make some selection next year based on wide appeal.
El_Che that was really a choice, I thought 11:21
jmerelo El_Che: you mean about the articles? Not really. We didn't have people exactly fighting to get their article published.
El_Che I mea you couldn't be selective because the lac of candidates 11:22
jmerelo El_Che: exactly
This article, last year, got ~7k visits perl6advent.wordpress.com/2017/12/...christmas/ It was by zoffix, and it was a nice introduction to some Perl 6 quirks
El_Che I am not a huge fan of advents 11:23
finding to time to read an article each day is difficult 11:24

jjmerelo AlexDaniel: I perfectly understand that. But that's not my point. 11:36
AlexDaniel jjmerelo: ok, so what's the point? Or what's the plan? 11:37
I saw very nice announcements on facebook
jjmerelo The point is, we need more and better marketing. In general, and in particular during Advent. Better planning, too. 11:38
AlexDaniel and reddit was fine too, I guess… haven't checked twitter
struggling to understand what can be done better
better articles would be nice, but how?

Gott Nytt Aar, moritz :) 13:00
AlexDaniel of course our hero should be named 13:01
jjmerelo One thing is missing and another, completely different, doing. 13:02
And we need to do...
AlexDaniel I guess the problem with “coordinated marketing and community-building efforts” is that whenever you attempt it, somebody will always object and critique your efforts, because everyone somehow has an opinion on it
jjmerelo AlexDaniel: everyone is entitled to an opinion. But the point about coordination is that it will be made by many different people, not by a single person. 13:03
AlexDaniel on the other hand, you can go and implement (without documenting and testing) a feature in rakudo and nobody will say a word :)
jjmerelo AlexDaniel: that's another, and a completely different, problem, and it's a problem of governance of the whole thing 13:04
AlexDaniel jjmerelo: yeah right. Like if adding more people with their own opinions is going to make our lives easier
IMO would've been better if we just let Zoffix do their thing, and maybe even focused on making it easier for them
jjmerelo AlexDaniel: the point is never to make our lives easier, but to grow the community. It will definitely make our lives more complicated 13:05
Just imagine 20 questions in StackOverflow a day... No way.
AlexDaniel: at times, it's difficult to know who's calling the shots here. Overall, and in particular places. In general, it looks that whoever calls the shots is actually calling the shots. 13:06
AlexDaniel btw I'm also guilty of that

El_Che The Perl 6 name is dead in the water, if you use an alias you get a civil war
good luck!
jjmerelo AlexDaniel: not really... in many cases, there are checks and balances and they can be implemented in GitHub.
kensanata AlexDaniel: Oh wow, a community wiki link in the wild! 13:08
AlexDaniel kensanata: ♥
jjmerelo El_Che: I wouldn't focus so much in the name, because you actually get a civil war too if you call it Perl 6. It's really a Catch-22 situation.
El_Che jjmerelo: try to market something without a name
AlexDaniel jjmerelo: I'm still struggling to understand your point, by the way. A lot of things are less than awesome, I get that. But if you're calling to action, then what's the action? 13:09
jjmerelo The thing is, to market something you need to know _who_ you are marketing it too.
AlexDaniel: for starters, I would say we should plan things more in advance. 13:10
And by things, I mean at least Squashathons and the Advent Calendar
Or course, monthly and rakudo star releases too and things attached to them like package and docker container releases. 13:11
Events with Perl 6 presence, too... 13:13
We need to know _what's_ to market before we do market it.
kensanata: looks like an interesting site; I hadn't found it before. Good work. 13:14
Maybe we should organize a Perl 6 conference? 13:19
El_Che jjmerelo: that would be a logical evolution. 13:21
jjmerelo: and also the trigger for the next big fight 13:22
moritz we already some Perl 6 hackathons 13:26
wasn't a big deal
we can just make another Perl 6 hackathon, and add a talk or two
(which seems to fit the goal more than a regular conference)
13:27 mowcat joined 13:28 p6bannerbot sets mode: +v mowcat
Juerd Hackathons and conferences have a different target audience 13:31
jjmerelo Juerd, moritz: that's right. Are we going to do that? Despite fights? /cc El_che 13:32
We need our very own toolchain summit, for instance. Doc tooling needs a major overhaul. The ecosystem needs some attention. The travis tests compiling rakudo every single time is terribly out of date 13:35
And so on...
lizmat Happy New Year everybody! 13:46
lizmat tries to shake off the hangover she has
jjmerelo: wrt to "our own toolchain summit", I'm in two minds about that 13:47
mostly because I wasn't at the last PTS, and I have no idea how much interaction happened between Perl 5 and Perl 6 at that summit
or if everybody politely ignored the elephant in the room and did their own thing 13:48
if the latter, then I think it is time for a Perl 6 Toolchain Summit

jmerelo: but I think I got it... it is a very big code...
To be used on a example... 17:00
jmerelo SmokeMachine: that looks great, but I was looking more for something that didn't need much DOM knowledge to use it. Some way to insert output in some fancy way in a web page 17:03
something like <% your output goes here %>
SmokeMachine jmerelo: what kind of output? HTML or just a string? 17:07
17:07 Ven` joined
jmerelo Well, HTML would be the thing; we already have the console if it's just a string. Can it be done? 17:08

17:13 Ven` left
b2gills [ptc]: Very simple, there is a bug here: github.com/rakudo/rakudo/blob/4a96...#L222-L230 17:27
It should probably just return False if either denominator is 0, rather than checking the numerators at all. 17:30
It also seems to be based on earlier non-normalized forms of Rat, because I think it could just do `so(a.denominator && b.denominator && a.denominator == b.denominator && a.numerator == b.numerator)` 17:33
Wait, that doesn't take care of Inf's 17:35
Anyway the nqp::mul_I would only be needed for a non-normalized Rat, which can't happen anymore. 17:37
[ptc] b2gills: thanks for the heads up, that certainly explains it 17:38

rindolf Hi all, happy new year 18:53
Geth doc: 47eeea2237 | (JJ Merelo)++ | 2 files
Adds a section on :pack

Although it was rather well covered in the Blob page. Added some references, and changed definitions on that page.
doc: af41394a60 | (JJ Merelo)++ | doc/Language/experimental.pod6
Removes comments

And introduction which is no longer relevant. Refs #2514 and it would close it if it weren't by the fact that I have discovered a new experimental feature, `smallnatives`, which begs documentation too.

El_Che pmurias: I agree with your sentiment. However there are many people that don't care much about the other community. My point that if a Perl 6 only conference would make sense, but it will fuel the argument of people that don't want Perl 6 at all at Perl conferences. 19:50

Woodi I think that all that v5 vs v6 problems are hard becouse there are more than 2 sides and when two sides agree 3rd is unhappy. so just doing what good matters and not worring too much is resonable... 20:48

mst Woodi: shadow.cat/blog/matt-s-trout/f_ck-perl-6/ is a rant of mine from years back basically saying that 20:52

guifa Is there any way to get Bag and Sets to work semi-intelligently with Lists/Arrays? 21:51
lizmat guifa: could you give an example ? 21:52
pmurias El_Che: it would both cause a bunch of arguments and doesn't have significant benefits so there is no point in doing that
guifa lizmat: bag([[1,2], [1,2], [1,2]]) 21:53
Expected: Bag([1,2](3))
Actual: Bag([1 2], [1 2], [1 2]) 21:54
I get that it's because it uses === and [1,2] !== [1,2], but that makes it really not useful. ANd I don't think that there's a :with to tell it to use eqv instead
lizmat guifa: it's not using eqv 21:55
guifa Right, I know
lizmat it's using .WHICH on the lists, and *that* is the real source of the issue
we don't have a true equivalent that Map is to Hash, for Arrays
as Lists (in my view) are being used for stuff they shouldn't be used for 21:56
that's why I made modules.perl6.org/dist/Tuple:cpan:ELIZABETH
fwiw, that module is written in such a way that it should be directly pastable in the setting, should we decide that's a good idea 21:58
guifa Yeah. I was just trying to work on codegolf.stackexchange.com/questio...uting-rows and the most obvious solution seemed on the surface to be using Bag
(plus a way to try to show off another feature of p6 ha) 22:00
lizmat I've been thinking of using some circumfix for tuples, but couldn't think of any 22:01
guifa: suggestions welcome 22:02
perhaps circumfix:<❪ ❫> ? 22:05
guifa the Kirby circumfix? :-) 22:06
lizmat circumfix:<⸨ ⸩> ? 22:07
dduncan I believe [] is an Array constructor, whose result is a mutable container, and in that case the implicit behavior should only consider the 2 equal when they are the same container. To get the desired behavior with the bag, the elements should be immutable List instead.
That’s how it should work.
lizmat dduncan: except you cannot atm make a List immutable because it may have components that haven't been reified yet 22:11
dduncan Oh? I’m still catching up on this.
lizmat that's the whole issue, really :-( 22:12
