farcas82regreg hello 01:23
i'm new to raku (and perl in general), what would the most idiomatic way would be to generate a random phrase? I have about 100 probabilistic grammars describing random company names, i'm basically doing the random company name generator part of the stock market simulator 01:24
basically i have a separate probabilistic grammar for each company sector/industry 01:25
the engine must generate company names first
what would be the idiomatic way?
also do you ppl happen to know a good raku online forum? i might need to post my questions for wider audience 01:26

rypervenche What are you trying to do exactly? 02:22
Xliff Port this to perl6: github.com/dniku/shutter/blob/mast...Toolbar.pm
All entries to $d are from the Perl5 Locale module, I think. 02:23
PO files are here: github.com/dniku/shutter/tree/mast...po/shutter 02:26
And I know I need to handle LANGUAGE and LANG environment vars, too...
Was hoping there was something out there that could handle it all for me so I can focus on the porting. Not re-inventing Locale. 02:27

SmokeMachine hi guys! I’m playing with this: github.com/FCO/EventExpressionLanguage this is the think I was asking a few days ago… would someone like to play with that? 09:15
(far from be working yet...)
lizmat SmokeMachine: a readme would be nice in github.com/FCO/EventExpressionLanguage ? 09:28
SmokeMachine lizmat: sure! I’ll do that as soon as possible… (sorry) 09:29
lizmat then it would be RWN worthy :-)

SmokeMachine yes
lizmat so, I'd present it as a discussion piece, not as a new module :-)
SmokeMachine But there is something a little bit more readable here: gist.github.com/FCO/ae6f90cec5e0ba...cb3f1af120 (I don’t think it’s good enought yet for RWN) 09:34

scimon So today I found that if I use a regex in the where clause in a signature $0 and so forth are available in the sub... is this a lucky accident or just more Raku awesomeness? 10:13
jnthn Well, only really works out well if you have one such regex :) 10:19
scimon True. 10:20
jnthn But it falls naturally out of the routine's $/ being in dynamic scope at that point.
scimon :D

abraxxa I can't find infos regarding newline matching in Grammars 11:09
I want to match a multiline comment
11:14 wamba joined
moritz what kind of info do you want? 11:17
\n matches a newline
. matches anything, including newlines
11:19 libertas joined 11:31 Doc_Holliwould joined, Doc_Holliwood joined 11:33 sena_kun left
abraxxa moritz: I'm currently matching each comment line as a separate token using token comment { \N* } and rule option:sym<comment> { ' '*'#'<comment>)>\n } 11:35
11:35 aborazmeh joined, aborazmeh left, aborazmeh joined
abraxxa I was wondering if something like the Perl 5 m regex modifier is active or not 11:35
I think it's safer to match each line and combine them like token comment-line { <.ws> '#' \N* \n }, token comment-lines { <comment-line>+ } 11:37
or would you solve it differently?
jnthn Depends if I actually want the comments or just want to ignore them 11:38
abraxxa I ignore them currently in the action class
jnthn In the latter case I tend to stick parsing of them in my <.ws>
abraxxa but want to attach them to the 'option'/
I though I'll define a new token comment-with-option { <comment-lines>?<option> } 11:39
jnthn Ah, then I'd have to think about it a bit more, though Rakudo's grammar does actually parse Pod declarator comments in the <.ws>, and then uses dynamic variables to stash 'em and have 'em attached :)
11:40 mowcat joined
jnthn Which works nicely enough there, but may not be convenient for all situations. 11:40
abraxxa and instead of token TOP { <option>+ } use token TOP { <comment-with-option>+ }
s/comments/comment-lines/ 11:41
and the first file I try to parse fails because it only has a comment :_) 11:47

timotimo i sense a desire / need for "BLAH".starts-with("blah", :ignorecase) and friends 12:00
12:00 Guest4508 joined
timotimo eq with :i is probably already served just fine with .match 12:00
m: say "BLAH".match(:i, "blah")
camelia Nil
timotimo m: say "BLAH".match(/:i blah/)
camelia 「BLAH」
timotimo hum. or not.
lizmat timotimo: same for contains and substr-eq I guess 12:02
timotimo yeah 12:03
lizmat fwiw, I implemented .contains(/foo/) last week
timotimo of, match with :i is a contains, not an eq
lizmat timotimo: no, it returns a Match, not a Bool 12:04
which is *much* heavier
timotimo that also
but i mean in terms of anchoring
lizmat .contains(Regex) returns a Bool without creating a Match object
12:06 stux|RC-only left
timotimo contains(Regex, :i) is not going to work, same reason as .match(Regex, :i) 12:06
12:08 stux|RC-only joined
timotimo alternatively, implement Regex.make-ignorecase 12:08
good luck with that, that would be gnarly 12:09
if the regex contains code blocks or lexicels 12:10
lizmat timotimo: lcing the string before doing the contains ? 12:12
12:13 aborazmeh left
abraxxa I need a token that can match either comment, comment with option, or just option 12:18
token comment-with-option { <comment-lines>?<option>? } doesn't work because it matches nothing successfully too which means the TOP rule never stops
12:36 rindolf left
timotimo lizmat: well, fc. but i do believe we have a bunch of i / im / m nqp ops for many of the string ops 12:37
lizmat yeah: github.com/perl6/nqp/blob/master/d...kdown#eqat 12:38
and github.com/perl6/nqp/blob/master/d...down#index 12:39
won't work on the JVM backend though :-(
12:40 Doc_Holliwould left, Doc_Holliwood left
timotimo could be registered as a desugar that just calls fc on both arguments before doing anything 12:41
was fc of ẞ and ß still Ss and ss?
lizmat no idea
moritz I think so, yes 12:42
lizmat ask daxim, he did a lightning talk on it once :-)
moritz upper-case ß never really caught on
and there are stability promises in Unicode that means they can't simply change the rules for existing characters

abraxxa I think I've asked this before but can't remember the answer: how can I undefine a variable? 13:25

abraxxa jnthn: thanks! 13:27
gunnar97 All stuff. The variable just contain '.', curr dir
jnthn Try clearing it. :) 13:28

jnthn rypervenche: I'm not sure TOP needs to be a regex. If yoiu just want to ignore lines that don't match, completely, you could have `token TOP { [<line> || \N*]* % \n }` or some such 14:44
14:45 domidumont joined
rypervenche Ahh! Let me try that. 14:47
moritz don't forget to match the final \n if there is one 14:49

rypervenche Will do. 14:51
[Coke] jnthn++ 14:52
14:58 molaf left
rypervenche Oh! That looks to be working correctly now with this. Is my \N*? all right or is there something smarter to use there in "token line"? (updated gist.github.com/rypervenche/2a42fb...df93369d08 ) 15:02
jnthn rypervenche: I did consider you could make line a proto and then have variants for line with identifier and line without, but I suspect it's not so useful since 1) you don't really need the LTM, 2) you probably want to ignore lines that don't match, and this way you won't need to discard them in actions. 15:03
So I think the way I suggested is probably the better solution overall 15:04
(Unless you do want the lines without identifiers too.)
15:06 dansolo42 left
rypervenche I was thinking of making a proto, but as there are only two options and, as you said, the unwanted lines, I guess this works. I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't doing anything wasteful or inefficient with the \N*? in line. I keep wanting to use .*? in everything. Thanks for helping with this. 15:06
jnthn If you've made TOP a token, then there's no backtracking to worry about anyway 15:08
.*? is sensible in the other case, and probably essential for correctness
rypervenche Using \N* didn't work, as I'm assuming it would skip over <entry> and go straight to the end of the line. \N*? looks to have worked. 15:11
(in token line, that is)
Glad it's finally working. :)

Altreus I have an architecture question I'm not sure I'm going to explain very well but here goes 16:15
The Discord API has a habit of sending back partial objects, especially when the request was for a different object. E.g. maybe it sends back a bunch of users in a channel when you request a channel 16:16
16:16 pecastro left
Altreus I don't want to send a request for every single one of those users just to populate the channel object fully; and I don't want to discard the data either 16:16
Grinnz Twitter does similar things 16:17
Altreus What I think I want is for the object to know it's a partial object and to fetch itself later on if the user requires it, but I don't know how to do that
Also it might not be what I want to do
16:17 SqrtNegInf left
Altreus I sense the answer lies in the metaclass, but here be dragons 16:17
Geth doc: coke assigned to stoned Issue Invalid example in doc/Type/Cool.pod6 github.com/Raku/doc/issues/3213
a4c562c2ef | (Luis F. Uceta)++ | 2 files

  * Wrap language constructs with C<> where appropriate.
Altreus The alternative I could think of would be to have a property that runs in parallel to @.users, @.users-partial
but that seems nasty
Well it's a % I think 16:20
Grinnz my twitter api mechanism is intentionally dumb, but twitter comes back with a partial user object when you get a tweet, and a partial last-tweet object when you get a user, i just fill in the object with whatever's there 16:21
Altreus I thought of having something along the lines of «%users{$id} = User.new but Partial» but then I'd have to remove Partial later, and it seems to me that a complete object is just a Partial one with no missing parts
Grinnz up to the user to have requested what they need
Altreus But can the user request what they need?
Grinnz sure, get_user if you need the full user 16:22
Altreus I guess that could be idempotent
So if you pass it a complete user it just returns it
16:22 mowcat joined
Altreus Then you don't need to know if it's a full user 16:22
colon thinking colon 16:23
Grinnz mainly i just wanted to avoid doing unnecessary requests
because in 100% of cases so far i havent actually needed to request further
Altreus It seems more likely in my case that this will be necessary 16:24
It's more likely to be the Message object, honestly
$message.author will probably be a partial object
I guess what I /really/ want is a sort of central cache of each object type 16:25
So it doesn't matter how I come by the User object - I either already know about it, or I get it
The other concern is I can't just swap objects out with a complete version of them
Or I'd do that
Grinnz i guess the most i can suggest is to determine what kind of tradeoff you want to make between DWIM and explicit managing of how many requests are made
16:27 cpan-raku left, cpan-raku joined, cpan-raku left, cpan-raku joined
Altreus yes ... the eternal tradeoff 16:33
I will consider

Doc_Holliwould Is there a way to do that? Transforming an argument in the within the sig. 17:16
Altreus sounds side-effecty 17:20
lizmat Doc_Holliwould I guess you could put it in a where block ? 17:24
but yuck ? 17:25

jmerelo Camelia has apparently stopped working in #whateverable 17:42
Also, this
m: say $foo // 3
camelia 5===SORRY!5=== Error while compiling <tmp>
Variable '$foo' is not declared
at <tmp>:1
------> 3say 7⏏5$foo // 3
jmerelo So far so good
m: say $*not-defined // 3
camelia 3
jnthn Why the "but"? 17:43
jmerelo Do dynamic variables get an out-of-not-defined-hell-card free?
Geth doc: 3b8f9fe964 | (Elizabeth Mattijsen)++ | doc/Type/Cool.pod6
Fix example

Since I was the one who merged this faulty example.
linkable6 Link: docs.raku.org/type/Cool
jmerelo jnthn: so is that spec?
jnthn jmerelo: The failed lookup produces a Failure
jmerelo: Sure
You're then disarming the failure with // 17:44
jmerelo m: $*not-defined = 33; say $*not-defined
camelia Dynamic variable $*not-defined not found
in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1
jnthn They're dynamic; we can't reason about them lexically (that is, at compile time).
jmerelo jnthn: which is why they behave differently to static variables 17:45
jnthn Yes.
jmerelo should we maybe document that?
jnthn I'm sure there's quite a lot of code doing the $*maybe-exists // 'default' thing
jmerelo: For sure; I'd assumed it already would be :) 17:46
If it's missing, totally worth documenting.
jmerelo jnthn: don't be sure about anything in the documentation...
jnthn :)
True; I tend to use the documentation almost entirely for standard library reference, not for language reference. 17:47
17:47 sena_kun joined
jmerelo jnthn: in this case, that's not the case: it's documented 17:47
jnthn: "a dynamic variable can be used undeclared as long as it's checked for definedness or used in a boolean context before using it for anything else"
m: say $*not-defined or "Bust" 17:48
camelia WARNINGS for <tmp>:
Useless use of constant string "Bust" in sink context (line 1)
Dynamic variable $*not-defined not found
in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1
jmerelo m: say $*not-defined || "Bust"
camelia Bust
17:48 lichtkind left
jnthn jmerelo: Yes, I just went looking and found exactly that :) 17:49
lizmat m: say "bust" without $*FOO
camelia bust
jnthn Though searching for "dynamic variable" or "dynamic scope" in the search box didn't lead me to it
Dunno if we try to index such terms
jmerelo jnthn: yep, that's the thing. I just created an issue for that: D#3215 17:50
linkable6 D#3215 [open]: github.com/Raku/doc/issues/3215 [RFE] Improve (including better indexing) of dynamically scoped variables
jmerelo jnthn: please add that if you think they should be found through those terms too. 17:51
