patrickb That was an accidental push. Good to revert. Apart from that: Wow, a pure Raku parse tree export! *That's* a feature worth having. I'm looking forward to what comes of it. I hope this work won't block on the age old issue of BEGIN blocks executing during compilation. (GitHub won't allow user code to run and rightly so. So its always been an issue that Raku calls BEGIN blocks while parsing.) 11:04
lizmat any Raku parsing that does not run BEGIN blocks, will be incomplete 11:07
but it may get very close :-)
patrickb Yeah, no fancy need like monitor and other Slsyntax changing goodness. We do need a solution for the syntax highlighting / IDE domain that 11:33
- works without begin 11:34
- is robust wrt non valid Raku code

Streamline NQPClassHOW

  - make sure access to data structures is atomic as much as possible
   as there is no NQPLock yet at this stage, so there's no way to
   actually protect updates
  - add some helper subs
  - change for loops to while loops: clearer where accesses are made
   and while loops are faster on arrays than for loops
  - added more comments (not nearly enough yet, though)

patrickb Random info: One of the things that slowly makes it to the top of my to-do list is writing a Raku Lexer in Raku. My current idea is to reproduce github.com/alecthomas/chroma/blob/...rs/raku.go in Raku. (the chroma Lexer is the most advanced there is atm) I'm definitely going to look at the comma sources once they are released if there is anything to steal. Purpose of such a 15:47
lexer: just as written above, we do need a solution for syntax highlighting. We have quite some solutions for different editors/technologies, but none in Raku. This hurts building Raku tooling in Raku, amongst those: raku.land, docs.raku.org and the Raku TUI debugger frontend I plan to work on.
japhb patrickb: You said the magic word 'TUI' ... what toolkit are you going to use for that? 15:50

patrickb japhb: Terminal::Widgets all the way. Not sure you remember, but that was on my core summit wish list... 16:01
japhb Oh, there's a *lot* going on in T::W right now, so good to hear. 16:06
I haven't been able to push a lot because a fair amount of it is trying to get some APIs right, but I feel like that's falling into place. 16:07
Actually, I should rearrange my patches and at least push the ones that were pure bug fixes ....
Geth nqp/main: 94b3eda428 | (Elizabeth Mattijsen)++ | src/how/NQPClassHOW.nqp
Add missing increment

Apparently this path is not taken in NQP, but *is* taken in Rakudo
jdv is a tui much better than a gui? idk. its still not automatable. 17:26

patrickb japhb: Please don't feel pushed. Working on the debugger is not that far up on my todo list. First need to get the Rakudo cibot running. And that has turned out to be a multi year project... :-P All of those Cro fixes, the epic supplies fix, my work on return vs leave are all bugfixes to get the cibot stable. 18:59
At the moment the bot is segfaulting about every ten minutes. But I think I'm slowly approaching the ENOMOREBUGS moment. 19:01
