Quibono Anyone know of good ways of representing programs/program transformation? 00:34
Also raku seems perilously complicated 01:11

Nahita can i always check if a Seq is infinite, or is it sometimes not possible? 08:22
`(1...False).is-lazy; # False` 08:23
dakkar I feel that "seq is infinite" reduces to the halting problem 08:24
lizmat indeed
really, marking an iterator as "lazy" makes sure that it will fail on something like .join without just trying to join the universe 08:25
Nahita :p thanks 08:27

Quibono Soo what's the best pitch for raku? It seems like there's a steep learning curve 22:58
stevied What doesn’t have a steep leaning curve? 23:00
Playing guitar well does too. Takes a few years and lots of practice.
Or you can just learn a few chords and still do some pretty cool stuff. 23:01
Quibono Right but with guitars you can make music, I'm asking what's special about raku that justifies the learning curve 23:10
stevied but what I'm saying is there really isn't much of a learning curve if your needs are simple.
you can learn a few chords on the guitar and play some pretty decent music, but not be an expert 23:12
