Make sure that test current directory is roast root

Because it is testing against some roast-specific files.

hankache Hello * 11:42
jjmerelo Hey! 11:44
hankache The RC for Rakudo Star 2020.05.1 on Windows is available at would you be kind enough to test it and report possible issues? I was having trouble setting permissions and one specific file "repo.lock" kept me from installing modules. I figure out a way to adjust permission for said file at install time. Nonetheless if you can test it thoroughly it would be awesome. Thanks 11:46

Now also takes a type object to indicate 'utf8' encoding. This is handy when an :$enc parameter is not initialized to a default. This should also allow passing around $encoding values as is, without needing to provide a default vaklue everywhere.

Make IO::Path.slurp upto 4.7x as fast

  - 4.7x as fast for :bin on a <4K file
  - 3.8x as fast for :enc(foo) on a <4K file
  - 2.8x as fast for :bin on a 2.4M file
  - 0.1% faster for :enc(foo) on a 2.4M file
This is achieved by going full native in IO::Path.slurp *without* creating an IO::Handle or any of the intermediate objects. This bypasses the costly creation of an IO::Handle object and calling the "open" function on it.
lizmat and the same goes for the slurp sub as well, of course :-) 17:18
and hopefully this should also help with modules that load a lot of precomped modules 17:20

Make slurp() upto 40% faster

For a small file with :bin, bigger files and/or with encoding will see smaller improvements. Achieved by adding candidates for :bin,
  :enc and none, instead of slurping any nameds and passing them on.

Restarting work on parallel compilation and .precomp locking 18:01
18:04 jjmerelo left
Xliff nine: So I've looked at the latest changes to the precomp stuff and think another object is needed to handle locking and file access, since PrecompilationStore::File generally only deals with IO::Handles. 18:07
nine: I'm not set on the name, but something like PrecompilationStore::File::Item, which would then implement all of the file operations, including a .lock. 18:08
PrecompilationStore::File would still implement !lock() would would lock the entire store. 18:09
Does this sound like a suitable train of thought to run down, or do you see problems?
lizmat Would anybody complain if I would make IO::Handle.slurp not needing an .open anymore ? 18:17

Improve readability of IO::Handle.slurp

Still doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

Don't use slurp-rest in the core anymore
nine lizmat: would that make sense? What would be the difference to IO::Path.slurp? 19:51
lizmat it would bypass all of the rigamerole of 19:52
and it would call just that
nine Xliff: I thought you were already pretty close before you stopped? Can't remember a need for shuffling around anything
tellable6 nine, I'll pass your message to Xliff
lizmat but I've abandoned the idea
nine I just learned that we can have un-opened IO::Handles and that IO::Handle has a $!path. And am confused by this 19:53
lizmat yeah, it's a mess 19:54

Make IO::Path.spurt upto 35% faster

For small files, larger files will see smaller improvements.
This is achieved by going full native in IO::Path.spurt *without* creating an IO::Handle or any of the intermediate objects. This bypasses the costly creation of an IO::Handle object and calling the "open" function on it.
