sjn quick question; why are the *able6 bots reset their connection so often? 08:13

Allow a string to be specified with exit()

This came up recently in a blog post: having an easy way to exit a CLI script with a message and an error, but *without* any stack trace.
In Perl, this is achieved with die() if the message does not have a newline. ... (10 more lines)
rakudo: lizmat++ created pull request #4494:
Allow a string to be specified with exit()
lizmat FWIW, I've been getting disconnected the past days several times as well
it seems that Libera.chat is doing some maintenance / upgrading 08:23
[06:38:06] -glguy-[Global Notice] We'll be rerouting 4 servers and restarting 2 servers shortly as part of scheduled maintenance. Updates will continue at the rate of a couple servers a week in this time slot as we upgrade the network to the new Debian release.
sjn lizmat: did you mean "..if the message _has_ a newline" in the commit message above? 08:24
lizmat no, *not* is my impression?
aah... I *did* get it backwards!
sjn perl -e 'die "foo"'; perl -e 'die "foo\n"'
lizmat fixing it in the PR 08:25
AlexDaniel sjn: I don't know! There's a rather agressive watchdog which kills them if nothing is received for a while
sjn: sometimes it gets triggered when nobody says anything :D 08:26
it used to be that IRC::Client would get stuck and not reconnect
which is why I added a watchdog
it's a total hack, but it worked 08:27
lizmat sjn++ # keeping an eye on thngs!
sjn are you able to run a tcpdump (or equivalent) to see if something happens on the network?
AlexDaniel sjn: not sure how that'd help. I think this is the bug report: github.com/raku-community-modules/.../issues/27 08:39
sjn: the watchdog is configured here github.com/Raku/whateverable/blob/...ervice#L45 and is notified here github.com/Raku/whateverable/blob/...at.pm6#L25 08:41
(haha at “TODO below” but there is no todo)
sjn: and here's where it is called: github.com/Raku/whateverable/blob/...#L143-L148 08:42
so basically, if somebody sends a message, then the watchdog is notified and the bot is kept alive
if it's too quiet, then the bots are killed
I can increase the timeout but then bots will be “stuck” reconnecting because of that bug in IRC::Client 08:43
sjn killed by... who?
AlexDaniel does that make sense?
oh also github.com/Raku/whateverable/issues/276 08:44

Fix argument to nqp::hllize inadvertently getting a name

The value of a Pair in an arglist gets a .named annotation. The p6callmethodhow desugar re-used the existing QAST::Op node, modified it and used it as argument to nqp::hllize. The new dispatcher based implementation doesn't cope with the name though. Fix by creating a new un-named QAST::Op and copying over the data we need.
rakudo/new-disp: 48ddac6ce7 | (Stefan Seifert)++ | src/Perl6/bootstrap.c/BOOTSTRAP.nqp
Add an raku-hllize dispatcher to replace nqp::hllize(for) on MoarVM
