Kaiepi i'm writing a way to type check values based off what kind they have. i have a parametric type that can be used for this, but i'm stuck using it in a where clause. is there any way i can write it so it happens at compile-time? 02:30
it being the type check

jmerelo I've voted to reopen this question in StackOverflow stackoverflow.com/questions/590352...k-wont-end 06:49
Even if the answer is elsewhere, and the code is similar, I would rather point the author in a comment or answer to it, than close it. 06:50
Also, they're new contributors. It's always better to help them than to reject them from the beginning closing their question. This is not what the community is about. 06:51
BTW, I saw it in the exciting new edition of Rakudo weekly, twitter.com/liztormato/status/1199...7423562753 06:52
Grinnz that's more a general stack overflow policy, I kind of agree it's offputting but it's also useful in the long run 🤷 06:53
an answer saying your answer is somewhere is probably clearer for newbies yes
especially when it's not exactly the same answer 06:54
jmerelo Grinnz: I'd like to arrive at the long run first
Grinnz: it's not exactly the same question, also, they're coming at it from a different angle. It's bound to show up in search results, too. 06:55
Grinnz: I mean, when we have like 10 questions a day, we'd probably cut the job short a bit by closing those that have been duplicated. But right now there are less than 300 questions with the Raku label. 06:56
We can't afford to lose a single one. Let's try and improve them instead of bashing them down.

nige_ I just freed up one my advent calendar slots (9th of Dec) another author is welcome to fill it ... 07:01
jmerelo nige_: thanks! 07:02
nige_ thanks - new $day-job means less tuits for the next few weeks 07:05
jmerelo nige_: congrats, and thanks for your remaining collaboration anyway.
nige_ no probs - its been good fun to contribute to the calendar over the years 07:07
speaking of collaboration - I've teamed up with three student teams from the uni of bristol to create MVP start up businesses 07:12
each team is using the same start up api
in 2020 i'd like to release a Raku client to help with getting apps started 07:13
(the api isn't yet ready just yet) 07:14
jmerelo nige_: that would be great :-) 07:15
nige_ cool :-) ...would love to see some jobs out there for Raku devs 07:16
(another good way to attract users)

tellable6 2019-11-09T14:32:34Z #raku-dev <tbrowder> tony-o is it possible to add the roast master branch to the build testing for a rakudo PR?
tony-o tbrowder: yes i believe so, do you have somewhere you want me to look for this?
or, a CI you're using specifically? either GH or travis or circle? 17:53
Kaiepi i mean using #| or #= syntax, tony-o 17:54
that's the desugared form of this:
#|[foo] 17:55
18:04 sena_kun joined 18:06 Altai-man_ left
tbrowder tony-o: the github folks said they increased the build time for us, so i would like to try out a spec (roast) test for the master branch. can we somehow create a roast test for master that is selectable instead of the normal build? maybe a special branch for the release managers? 18:10
us (rakudo) 18:11
18:14 kensanata left
tony-o yea i can work on that 18:18
18:19 caterfxo joined
tony-o err, sorry, you're referring to gh actions, no? tbrowder 18:19
tbrowder i'm not sure, build time increase is for rakudo, so i would like us to try a build for rakudo and run the full spec test (or at least as much as we can, using travis). 18:21
El_Che tbrowder: wouldn't you be cut at 50m? 18:22
tbrowder travis folks said build time has been increased 18:23
18:24 wildtrees joined
tony-o oh, i see..let me think on how to do that 18:24
yes it can be done, probably in a lot of bad/slow ways
tbrowder maybe you can talk to the travis engineer: Jan Schulte, i'll send tel number by priv msg 18:25
tony-o ah, danke - i'll whatsapp him once i figure out what i'd like to ask 18:27
Doc_Holliwould finally I had a use for dynamic variables 18:33
but boy, recursion makes my brain melt.
El_Che tony-o: hi tony-o (it was me in the problem-solution thread) 18:36
tony-o you're nxadm?
El_Che yes
tony-o Doc_Holliwould: you would love xslt then
El_Che tony-o: I am also Batman, but don't tell anyone :)
Doc_Holliwould I would appreciate it if that word would never be used again in these halls, tyvm 18:37
i loved xsl-fo though, though I cheated because we used templates to create the xml for the pdfs 18:38
tony-o El_Che: my point, as you pointed out, is off topic in terms of that issue but not in terms of discussing a CoC - my point is mainly that an ask for help like that should come after direct communication channels are attempted (like here), and an attempt at getting mediation elsewhere. the problem-solving repo seems like more of a place to committee a decision that needs to be made, that issue skirts the 18:39
issue of a CoC but mainly is focused on the OP feeling harassed
Doc_Holliwould: haha
El_Che tony-o: I have no time to discuss it atm (helping daughter with homework in a few minutes), but I get your point of the Coc and I see it connected to a lack of procedure: no one know how to act and what channels to use. Also if you're the accused party. 18:41
tony-o El_Che: ah, no worries 18:42
[Coke] If we need help with CoC questions, I have a resource in TPF we can probably get some cycles from. 18:43
tony-o i think in this case, specifically, a direct conversation would've alleviated a lot of the tension before it came to what it did
[Coke] (I don't see the original discussion, just tony-o and el_che's comments just now)
tony-o as it usually does with most things in the world
[Coke]: #131 in the problem-solving repo 18:44
[Coke] Danke 18:58

Geth ¦ problem-solving: vrurg assigned to jnthn Issue Remove P5 regexes from Raku github.com/perl6/problem-solving/issues/133 20:24
Grinnz my uninvested opinion: maybe a PCRE style would be more useful 20:27
that's also less of a moving target
(or even a way to use libpcre2 directly, like re::engine::PCRE2 in perl?) 20:28
vrurg Grinnz: in either case, it's better be a 3rd party module, but not in the core. 20:32
Grinnz sounds reasonable
vrurg Now it's only a matter of someones good will to implement a module. :) 20:33

lizmat received a mail about a release ? 21:54
El_Che :)
AlexDaniel lizmat: what mail?
I didn't send anything
from github? 21:55
lizmat yup
AlexDaniel well, you all will need to have some patience though :)
lizmat he, ok
AlexDaniel because turns out there are no moarvm tars, I guess that will be fixed shortly
so technically there is a release, but tough luck if you want to build from tars :) 21:56
japhb AlexDaniel: Speaking of MoarVM, now that you've released do you want to bump nqp/rakudo to pick up nine++'s NativeCall fixes? 21:57
AlexDaniel yes yes 21:58
that needs to be done anyway to have nicer version files

japhb When I try to `zef install HTTP::UserAgent`, I get "Failed to find dependencies: Encode". How do I figure out what needs to be fixed? Also, `zef info HTTP::UserAgent` just says "Depends: 10 items" without giving any details, and there doesn't seem to be a verbose option. Likewise, `zef depends HTTP::UserAgent` tells me "Failed to resolve some missing dependencies", which isn't useful -- I need to actually 23:51
know what those dependencies are and what it tried. I ended up looking at github.com/sergot/http-useragent/b...META6.json just to see the full depends list, but zef should be able to do that directly.
(Yes, clearly I know zef is having troubles with the Encode dependency. It's not clear whether that's a problem with the ecosystem data, or a moved Encode repo, or an out of date META6 for HTTP::UserAgent, or what.) 23:52
(And in the mean time I discovered the apparent problem with using zef to figure out what went wrong.) 23:53
