vrurg Aearnus: I'm having weird discrpancies on read benchmark result where ratio flip-flops between 1.6 and 9 times slow down. But write is consistent and it's only 1.4 times slower. 00:06
discord6 <Aearnus> huh, interesting
<Aearnus> how many reads/writes a second does that come out to vrurg? 00:07
vrurg Try it yourself: gist.github.com/vrurg/aa7eb27dd56b...fe4a0ec5fa 00:09
On your system it would most likely be different numbers. 00:10
discord6 <Aearnus> fair point haha 00:22
<Aearnus> thx vrurg
vrurg welcom! :) 00:28

Doc_Holliwood did anybody ever try to upload a module with a wide unicode name? like "Mojūru" 00:40
or even real kanji characters? which this client doesn't support
AlexDaniel Doc_Holliwood: there's this modules.perl6.org/dist/Acme::%E0%B...:ELIZABETH 00:41
guifa chuckles at that module 00:42
Grinnz based on metacpan.org/pod/distribution/Acme...me/o_o.pm, but probably has to jump through far less hoops :P 00:43
AlexDaniel guifa: you might also like module ../Foo
Doc_Holliwood joins the chuckling
AlexDaniel guifa: here on the bottom: modules.perl6.org/search/?q=foo 00:44
Grinnz well that seems like a terrible idea :P
AlexDaniel Grinnz: IIRC you can actually install it if you clone it from here github.com/AlexDaniel/foo-dotdotslash 00:45
Grinnz: and then do `zef install .`
guifa I think I’m going to have to have to join in the fun sometime. Maybe a Raku and/or Perl calendar variant whose epoch is the original release date?
guifa would then make the Perl calendar always one day behind the Raku one 😈
AlexDaniel guifa: actually, I'd love to see an implementation of International Fixed Calendar 00:46
could be handy for certain operations
Doc_Holliwood are you nuts?
AlexDaniel Grinnz: also I think it's possible to uninstall it too 00:47
Grinnz: oh, and it has tests, and they pass!
Grinnz heh
Doc_Holliwood it is known that only opening a source file with date related code has led to sudden brain bleeding and strokes
let alone reading it
Grinnz i guess having the ability to store the modules without the same name on the filesystem helps
not so much with the URLs, apparently
AlexDaniel Grinnz: that's just a bug on the website 00:48
guifa Doc_Holliwood: someone has to do it. I’m sacrificing myself. I actually grabbed a copy of the Calendric Calculations book to start work on it
AlexDaniel I wouldn't be surprised if module <b> does exactly what I expect it to do…
Grinnz is quite happy with the restriction of only word characters and :: in package names
AlexDaniel yeah, well… I should really upload a <b> module 00:49
Grinnz if that breaks it that's definitely a bug
url escaping can be ambiguous, html escaping not so much :P
00:50 afasdf joined
AlexDaniel wait there's an emptystring module too? 00:50
guifa The trick is that some calendars can’t be converted with 100% accuracy and then you run into issues of date vs datetime. I’m actually not sure how to handle a datetime for Hebrew and I’ve not seen any generally advice on handling it
AlexDaniel oh! There it is
on the bottom
Grinnz also a nice link :P 00:51
that reminds me of when i didnt check for empty strings on cpanmeta.grinnz.com/ but didnt notice because they were all just empty <a> anyway
guifa: www.tondering.dk/claus/calendar.html 00:52
guifa Grinnz: that page identifies the problem (without stating it as such) but without a solution. Hebrew calendar days start basically at sunset 00:53
Grinnz mmmhm
sunset data is not encoded to anything useful, so i think you might be generally out of luck there 00:54
guifa You can calculate it, but it’s not really useful anyways, because what do you do for polar areas? 00:55
Grinnz perhaps approximations like sunset is at 6pm would be good enough
AlexDaniel OK I have a module…

Geth ecosystem: 098343874e | (Aleks-Daniel Jakimenko-Aleksejev)++ | META.list
Add Foo::<b>Foo module
guifa Grinnz: yeah, there’s no great solution except to give people options (align with Jerusalem, strictly 6pm, align to a supplied location, align to the near non-polar area, etc)
Islamic calendar has similar problems, it’s impossible to predict observational calendars in advance, so calculations will always have a margin of error of a day or two 01:00
AlexDaniel now we just wait for the index to update…
to see the epic fail 01:01
Grinnz: what would be a better namespace for stuff like this?
Grinnz: “Foo” doesn't sound like a good one, right?
Grinnz everything like this is Acme:: in perl 5 01:02
unless its a funny pragma that has to be at top level
AlexDaniel but Acme has like, um, how do I say it
“useful stuff”
01:02 ZzZombo left
Grinnz eh? 01:02
01:02 ZzZombo_ is now known as ZzZombo
AlexDaniel I mean like stuff that actually works, my modules are simply there to test/break tooling 01:03
Grinnz yeah, Acme:: has both
like Acme::Bleach actually works, but still is pointless
AlexDaniel we have something like that too, I think: github.com/perl6-community-modules...me-Anguish 01:04
hmm it doesn't allow these characters in the source code? bummer 01:05
Grinnz heh
cpan-raku New module released to CPAN! LibXML (0.1.5) by 03WARRINGD 01:07
01:10 stanleytam joined
AlexDaniel I guess a null byte in the name can be fun too 01:20
===SORRY!=== Cannot use null character (U+0000) as part of the path 01:24
that's weird, I'm not sure why it attempts to 01:25
eh, it ends up constructing an IO::Path somewhere, I guess 01:28

AlexDaniel zef is happy to `install .` it and it even passes tests… so, uh, ok? 01:44

warriors but adding / / once in str2 and again in the regex 03:27

hythm agree, I saw it in SO question, and it's not working without the // so I added it to try 03:32
03:32 Kaiepi left
hythm the question is how can I interpolate a variable into a regex and acts as Str or Regex, so it can be matched as literal string or regex based on the content of the variable 03:37
the goal is to have :auth<github:raku> ~~ :auth<github:raku> and :auth</.*:raku/> ~~ :auth<github:raku> both returns true 03:42
I made it work before but forgot how I did it 03:43
typo: :auth</github:raku/> ~~ :auth<github:raku> and :auth</.*:raku/> ~~ :auth<github:raku> both returns true 03:44

notable6 lizmat, Noted! (weekly)
Doc_Holliwood did somebody try the "resources" feature. i put a file into that field in the meta6, and installed the module. in the module code i dump %?RESOURCES but it doesn't show the file i included there 11:29
If i understand the docs right, there should be and additional entry in there that points to the location of the resource 11:31
11:36 xinming_ left 11:37 xinming_ joined 11:43 pmurias joined 11:47 ufobat left
sena_kun Doc_Holliwood, how does your `resources` field in META6.json look like? where is your file placed, in `resources/$filename`? in the module distribution directory? 11:49
Doc_Holliwood Mmh. I could find my file in rakudo\share\perl6\site\resources 11:50
but how do I know the checksum?
sena_kun Doc_Holliwood, you don't need to know those details, you are using external API only
Doc_Holliwood, you can check if your setup fits to some working example 11:51
e.g. with cro-http:
github.com/croservices/cro-http/bl...6.json#L74 <- META6.json
github.com/croservices/cro-http/bl...index.html <- the file placement itself
github.com/croservices/cro-http/bl....pm6#L1068 <- usage
Doc_Holliwood, makes sense or not really? 11:55
Doc_Holliwood finrah i seee
ah, i see
see i dumped %?RESOURCES and saw no keys
but when I ask for %?RESOURCES{"myfile"} it return something 11:56
sena_kun well, that's because there is some magic involved, so you don't don't inspect it directly, rather you ask it "Give me something by this name".
s/don't don't/don't/
Doc_Holliwood That could be mentioned in the documentation. 11:57
sena_kun github.com/perl6/doc/issues/2240 <- there is even my ticket that asks for that... 11:58
Doc_Holliwood, if you want, you can volunteer to document it. :) 11:59
Doc_Holliwood starts to cry
All I wanted was to write a nicely coded cross platform implementation of a command line pac man 12:00
Now I find myself rewriting half of mi6 because it annoys me so much
And you ask me to shave another yak
Doc_Holliwood shakes fists
I'm kidding. But you can also do it. I think pretty much everybody has commit bits to the docs 12:01
sena_kun I can, of course, and I did not insist, just asked. 12:02

nine Oh boy...just found out where that bug in our Perl 5 code base at work is coming from that went away when I added some debug output. 14:07
The debug statement was: warn((scalar keys %$links) . " entries in cache"); 14:08
Followed by while (my ($name, $target) = each %$links) { ... } So the bug was that the hash iterator for %$links wasn't reset between calls to that function. This makes me appreciate the cleanup that Raku as a language got all the more!

vrurg AlexDaniel: we make a policy on this. It's normal for a release to lag behind, I don't see a big deal here.
AlexDaniel it's already hard to keep master branch sane with all the bumps and stuff, and doing the same for release branches is doable but not as great as people suggest 16:17
and then, whateverable doesn't even track branches, so all the tooling will suck
as I mentioned previously, I'll likely submit a grant proposal that'll have this covered, so maybe it'll be easier in the future 16:18
(I mean, making whateverable better)

AlexDaniel vrurg: I also don't, but in my experience whenever we had release branches for just a few days people would keep asking if their amazing fixes will make their way into the release 16:19
vrurg AlexDaniel: tooling is the only serious problem as to me. It is technical. The rest we can manage.
AlexDaniel vrurg: I guess it's less of an issue now because rakudo is very stable and pretty fast too 16:20
so yeah, that's definitely something we can improve
vrurg With a good release policy in place the answer to those requests would be: see paragraph 'WHY NO'
AlexDaniel there's this thing also… every new release manager used to introduce a bunch of good changes to the release process 16:21
vrurg Ok, I have things to be done first place... Won't be able to answer but would try to follow.
AlexDaniel and if you look at this list you'll probably see an issue :) github.com/rakudo/rakudo/blob/mast...ses-so-far 16:22

because I'd much rather not distract existing devs with release management
kawaii: you had something you were working on, any news? github.com/perl6/problem-solving/i...-507668134 16:30
kawaii Sorry yes, I've been extremely distracted recently due to $real-life but I do have some long-term plans for how the "release team" should structure and organize releases in the future. I need to find some time to find my feet in the community again, as I took a backseat during the name transition to see what would happen, and contemplated my position here as I'm one of the few people who chose Perl 6 _because_ it's Perl. 16:55
As opposed to people who see the name "Perl" and are dissuaded from reading further into it.
sena_kun While people can feel, the language itself won't change whatever name it is under. The features are here, the ideas behind are here. 17:02
imho, names (in general) are just links, just as words are in general. once people made an agreement that, hmm, an abstract class of objects with some common traits is called "a chair", and some other imaginary class to be "a table". We, humans, use our cool telepathy powers to recognize that "Oh, so when my ears perceive those waves in the air, I should parse them and get an imaginary brain concept linked to this pattern of air waves, 17:06
ok, I'll do that". But virtually there is no difference, as world does not need words to operate at all.
alas, the world is complex and our brains are simpler than it by definition, so our way of doing telepathy is often very LTA. 17:07
I did not intend to say something like "Your feelings are not important!" right now, only to provide a (possibly) different perspective. 17:10

guifa is holding off changing the filenames in modules until the 6e release 18:57
AlexDaniel guifa: 👍
guifa (plus I don’t think zef can handle them right now, right?) 19:04
AlexDaniel guifa: it depends, I think “.pm6” files can have any extension, but I'm not sure 19:12
guifa: as long as the path to them is right in META6.json
I guess there are other ways they won't work, but just saying that it's possible to get away with it :) 19:13
19:14 ggoebel left 19:19 lelf joined
guifa AlexDaniel: fair. I just wanna make sure to maximize compatibility for the time being. Actually TBH if zef/6.e together will still accept .pm6 and such I might leave them as such until 6.f, much as I want to be the avante garde of the change over 19:21
Interesting that binding can’t be done for attribuets. Is there any particular reason for that? /me is trying to apply a proxy to an attribute 19:22

tbrowder i'm asking those who used "stacked" leading declarator blocks, a sequence of lines before a sub like"("#| some comment 19:29
like: #| comment 1; #| comment 2;... how you would like that to be rendered 19:30
guifa tbrowder: I asked that actually just yesterday or maybe it was day before. timotimo said that the presumption is two oneliners like that should be joined 19:31
tbrowder at the moment the sequence is concatenated into one normalized string
guifa #| Hello, my
#| name is
#| Camelia
sub foo … 19:32
The whole thing would be “Hello, my name is Camelia” and get attached to sub foo

🍕 niner++ closed issue “Regression in NativeCall, seems Role related”: github.com/rakudo/rakudo/issues/3235
tbrowder but i woulld like to see my text as is, newlines and spaces as i entered them
at the moment, you can use the #|( .... ) form to do the same thing, one string 19:34
guifa Based on some other systems I’ve seen, I think the optimal would be to assume that if the line starts on the same indent level, consider it a continuation of the previous. If it has a higher space indent, then new line + indent X spaces
Because thinking about how I’ve done those style comments in my code, I definitely have some indented stuff that should be preserved. 19:35
tbrowder my proposal is to modify the "stack" of #| lines to keep the text as is, not stringify it into one line
guifa: the problem with the fancier method you're suggesting is grammar complexity. we already have good pod elements to do that kind of thing. 19:37
i have been able to implement my proposal but don't want to waste any more time if the idea is shot down 19:39
guifa tbrowder: i’m not opposed to yours. I don’t think either one is inherintely better or worse, I’d just be curious to see how most people use them and would interpret the typical uses (that’s an real curiousity, in case textchat isn’t conveying it well). 19:45
Or, thinking outloud, perhaps since the #|( … ) “will not translate to a multi-line display”, we could say that a sequence of #| over various lines by default implies newlines, but have ¬ or something force join it, and allow \n or a double newline imply a newline for the #|( … ) syntax ?
19:46 wildtrees joined
tbrowder guifa: we're on the same page, but in any case, at present, the single line is all you can get. my simple proposal gives you a choice and provides a path to future improvements. 19:48
by the way, as the code is now, a #|newline is just an ordinary comment that is NOT added to previous or later #| leading declarator comment lines 19:59
guifa ^^ so since it’s not combining them, this is a great time to decide on how to interpret it :-) 20:00

xkr47 thanks! 20:04
Grinnz and indeed, it's less confusing now ;) 20:05

tbrowder as a first ste 20:05
guifa: see rakudo issue #2332 for my original proposal. i don't think i will attempt that given what i've seen after trying to mod the actual code for that area. 20:10
xkr47 anyone tried using the graal vm with raku? 20:11
guifa tbrowder: definitely will take a look at it and drop some comments over there. Have to get some tests and papers graded but will probably do that afterwards. 20:12
pmurias xkr47: currently working on a truffle/graalvm backend for rakudo 20:15
tellable6 2019-10-17T22:24:18Z #raku-dev <MasterDuke> pmurias: nice. i see a lot of graalvm in the news and i hope to do some more after i finish up this libtommath work
guifa pmurias: nice!
pmurias xkr47: it's in very early stages currently
but the truffle design seems like a perfect fit for Raku 20:16
