holyghost IF I find the time, I might do some guile bindings for raku 06:35
I've put it in my TODO.txt file 06:36
problem is, I don't know where to start
06:36 veesh left
holyghost binding the raku system has an enormous time load 06:37
06:37 veesh_ is now known as veesh, wamba joined
holyghost What I want to do is have some packages extended. So program scheme (in guile) for features 06:38
I still have to think twice about that
guile was made by GNU and rms to extend programs 06:39
I probably don't need nqp extensions, now that I think of it, but perl6 can be extended this way by guile, so you can write extra scheme code for your program 06:40
inlining does not make sense BTW
it probably be better coded in nqp and C, raku's implementation languages
I still have to figure that out, I've never written anything in nqp but as it's perl, I'll manage 06:41
Anyway, I have to have some kind of weekend, so, I'm off 06:42

antoniogamiz o/ 10:53
is there a way to eliminate the call stack when an exception is thrown?
tadzik probably, but I feel like there might be a better solution to what you're trying to do :) 10:57
what's your goal?
antoniogamiz My goal is to throw an exception when a user has specified a non-existent directory
I want to show a helpful message instead of the message + the backtrace 10:58
tadzik then you're probably better off catching the exception in the UI code and printing something more helpful than the entire stack 10:59
antoniogamiz hum, that makes sense, thanks :) 11:00
tadzik full exceptions are worth keeping for future debugging, even though they don't make the best UI :) It's worth to do some extra legwork in the UI so that you don't take the tools away from your future self ;)
11:01 wamba joined
tadzik this also allows you to give the message more context and customize it to your domain 11:01

codesections Looking at the logs from the past couple of hours, I'm really struck by how nice/helpful everyone here is :) tadzik: I think your answer about exceptions was one of the most polite/tactful ways of addressing a potential XY problem I've seen 15:21
tadzik aw thanks :) 15:26
I learned from the best, this channel (and #perl6 before it) is how I learned a lot about being kind on the internet
codesections :) 15:31
kawaii I think in general the Raku community is probably the kindest and most inclusive I've been a part of 15:33
programming communities in general (looking at you, Rust) are well known for elitism and toxicity - none of that here :) 15:34
15:34 ufobat left 15:35 tejr left
kawaii and then there's this absolute gem from Perl monks usercontent.irccloud-cdn.com/file/...AIhmlM.png 15:35
tadzik huh, I haven't noticed that from the Rust community
codesections Haha, that's funny – I was just about to say "I'm coming from Rust, which is *also* known as a kind & inclusive place, but Raku seems even better"
tadzik I guess I was lucky :)
kawaii codesections, tadzik: see; www.reddit.com/r/rust/comments/63a..._the_rust/ 15:36
codesections so I'm surprised (/a bit sad) that you got that impression of Rustacians
kawaii codesections: I originally tried learning Rust a couple of years back, and was met by "ah well if you're asking basic questions like this you'll never be a Rust programmer _like me_" 15:37
codesections I'm really sorry to hear that. That sucks :( 15:38
guifa codesections: that’s one of the things I love about Raku too. I think part of it is the TIMTOWTDI mindset of raku invites more people and, from the very get-go, recognizes a diversity of solutions
So no one can just jump in and categorically say “this is the only solution why couldn’t you think of it?" 15:39
kawaii codesections: I moved on to Raku, didn't look back, and much happier I did on retrospect :)
guifa Instead, it’s more like, “Well, here’s one way you can do it, with X, Y, Z advantages/disadvantages, and here’s another one with A, B, and C, based on your situation, think aboutit and figure out what works best” 15:40
codesections I guess I also got lucky. When I got into Rust, the only language I knew was JavaScript (and I wasn't so great at that!). I asked a *lot* of dumb questions and always got helpful replies. Really sucks that you had the opposite experience
tadzik kawaii: I feel like the "circlejerking" there is perhaps the biggest takeaway, but I don't feel like that's unique to Rust – I see that in every echochamber, and I've seen it on this channel too, multiple times :) People struggle to be objective about topics they're deeply invested in 15:41
15:41 tejr joined
tadzik then again, perhaps I lack your perspective. I've had nothing but positive experiences with Rust community, they were limited to #rust:matrix.org and the Warsaw irl user group 15:42
kawaii tadzik: my mistake might have been asking on StackOverflow :) 15:43
tadzik the zealotry and idolizing own tech I find more amusing than annoying :)
kawaii: possibly :)
not sure how the community is over there
codesections oh, interesting – I also didn't use SO much. I mostly asked my dumb questions on r/rust 15:44
maybe there is something about the SO rust culture. I have to say, I've never really gotten a good vibe from SO in general; folks seem oddly interested in earning Internet Points :) 15:45
(but maybe I just never got into it in the right way/early enough – I've heard it used to be better) 15:46
to be clear I *read* plenty of SO answers, I just don't ask many questions
kawaii ^ the best way of using SO, read, don't write. 15:47
I know that people in this IRC are keen on people asking more Raku questions on SO though, and you're likely to just get answers from people here anyway. 15:50

guifa kawaii codesections exactly true. The most common people to answer on SO are me, raiph, lizmat, jnthn, bgills2, jjmerelo, etc. Probably the biggest decider on who answers (unless it’s a really deep question), is time of day ;-) 16:28

Voldenet gfldex: I'm not sure if that's still relevant, but having custom operators used to massively slow down parsing 17:56
m: my $s = BEGIN now; sub x { $^a }; x 4; say now - $s
camelia 0.02101044
Voldenet m: my $s = BEGIN now; sub prefix:<x> { $^a }; x 4; say now - $s
camelia 0.3397623
Voldenet yep, still the case
timotimo it's true
Voldenet it's a nice feature for long-running code, but I don't use it for scripting 17:57
timotimo i would assume it's still among a few other things optimizing the NFA again for the whole operator category 17:58
when you have the operator in a module, you get it loaded super fast
after precompilation is done, of course
Voldenet oh
gfldex There was no work done on making that area of Rakudo fast. So I have hopes the problem will be solved by somebody who is not me.
linkable6 Link: docs.raku.org/language/glossary
DOC#3287 [closed]: github.com/Raku/doc/issues/3287 [docs][meta] p6y to rakuy
timotimo you're refering to custom operators, right? 18:01
gfldex aye
timotimo ah, i misread, you said "no work done"
yeah that's accurate
18:02 andrzejku left
gfldex time raku -Ilib example/basic.raku 18:04
user 0m0.784s
thatäs with spawning 2 processes and a 2 worker threads for processing
Voldenet actually, after precompilation is done, the base cost is still around 300ms, however it doesn't increase with every operator added 18:05
timotimo ah, dang
perhaps in that case it can properly mix in all of the operators at once
instead of recomputing and re-optimizing the nfas after each one in turn
gfldex I'm quite happy to trade that overhead for good error handling and much easier debugging over any bash script. 18:06
timotimo mhm 18:07
Voldenet I'm not sure if it's valid to even mix all operators at once 18:11
m: sub a { "sub $^a" }; sub prefix:<x> { ":x $^a" }; sub prefix:<a> { ":a $^a" }; say x 4 18:13
camelia :x 4
Voldenet m: sub a { "sub $^a" }; sub prefix:<x> { ":x " ~ a $^a }; sub prefix:<a> { ":a $^a" }; say x 4
camelia :x sub 4
18:13 Altai-man_ joined
Voldenet this works, but if a in prefix:x was interpreted as prefix:a it wouldn't ;P 18:13
not that I'd expect anyone using this for anything 18:14

Voldenet so prefix operators actually require space on usage if they'd be interpreted as identifier with its arguments… 18:32

18:44 tejr joined
guifa timotimo: the lack of spaces is my biggest issue with making a custom prefix :-( 18:45
timotimo you can only unspace 18:46
sub names aren't broad enough for your needs? 18:47
guifa was just about to say that doing a sub would probably be a decent alternative
It’s just noas clean looking to name a sub after a non-idenifier 18:48
codesections My biggest issue with custom operators right now is that they basically don't work in the REPL (but I'm sure that'll be fixed at some point) 18:49
Unrelatedly, I just realized/learned that Raku allows you to recurse in an anonymous block with &?BLOCK. That's really nice! 18:51
guifa and, fwiw, you can do the same with regexen, by using <~~>
(although &?BLOCK is compile time, not sure if <~~> is) 18:52
codesections (APL has anon recursion with ∇ and it's amazing. I kind of want to make that a Raku operator now …)
"&?BLOCK is compile time" what do you mean by that? I know it's a compile-time variable, but I thought it was just giving the runtime a "name" for the unnamed block it's in? 18:53
so you could still do anything runtime-related you want to, right? Or am I confused? 18:54
(also, I didn't know about <~~> – thanks for the tip!)
guifa codesections: it means it can be linked through at compile time (e.g. not having to look it up, like if you used ::BLOCK or something) 18:59
codesections Oh, you mean "no runtime perf penalty", basically? 19:00
guifa And possibly better optimization
codesections Also, I can't find any docs on `<~~>`. Do you know where it it/should be?
(If it's not documented, I can open an issue)
guifa Compare with using, say, ::OUTER::OUTER (which I actually do), the scopes have to get looked up 19:01
<~~> is not documented for some very strange reason
codesections right, I'm with you now. I thought you were saying it was less powerful by virtue of being a compile time construct (because it couldn't access run time info) and I couldn't figure that out. But being lower cost/free makes sense 19:02
guifa If you need match on it, you need to save it to a named capture, btw. E.g. / pre $<inner>=<~~> post /
but take all perfomance questions from me with a grain of salt, that’s not my area of expertise at all 19:03
guifa motions at <local-alpha> token’s current glacial performance
codesections Thanks. Can you show an example of `<~~>` in use? I'm having trouble figuring out the syntax in my REPL 19:04
timotimo m: say "(((()))(()))" ~~ / ['(' $<inner>=<~~>? ')']+ / 19:05
camelia 「(((()))(()))」
inner => 「((()))(())」
inner => 「(())」
inner => 「()」
inner => 「()」
guifa m: say “[[[][]][]]” ~~ / ‘[‘ ~ ‘]’ <~~> /
camelia 5===SORRY!5=== Error while compiling <tmp>
Unable to parse expression in curly single quotes; couldn't find final "’" (corresponding starter was at line 1)
at <tmp>:1
------> 3say “[[[][]][]]” ~~ / ‘[‘ ~ ‘]’ <~~> /7⏏5<E…
guifa ugh timotimo’s computer didn’t do stupid smart quotes like mine did
but… jinx ;-)
codesections Thanks to you both :) 19:06
guifa . O O ( also mine needed a * modifier)
oh! timotimo just thought of how subs aren’t a great substitute for prefixes 19:07
subs have a fixed precedence
19:08 Sgeo joined
timotimo indeed they do 19:08
list prefix
they gobble up basically everything to the end of command
guifa so if I say my @a = pfx-as-sub 5, 6, 7; it will always eat up the 6 and 7, whereas with prefixes, I could give it a tighter precedence than the comma operator to only work on 5
timotimo true 19:09
you could 5.&pfx-as-sub
but then it'll be a suffix :D
guifa I feel like .&foo and method $invocant: $arg are the two most underused features 19:10
Comma still doesn’t support code highlighting for the latter *coughcoughjnthnsenakuncoughcough*
timotimo .&bleh is a way to do a sub call that gets curried for WhateverCode 19:11
which is perhaps where i use it most often?
guifa I’ve used it for some custom coercesions
just to align better with code that has .Str or .Num etc 19:12
codesections guifa: really? I'm surprised to hear that – I use .&foo *all* the time
I'm sure you're right – I haven't looked at enough other people's code to know. But I'm surprised
guifa codesections: it probably depends on the type of code you’re writing. I’m working almost always in my modules’ spaces, so if I need a method, I can just write it :-) 19:13
Although I’m abotu to do very bad naughty things to DateTime
guifa grins evily
codesections "If I need a method, I can just write it" Fair enough. One place I use it *all* the time, though, is in tests: `my-fn('input').&is(42)` just reads so much better to me 19:16

codesections hmm, I'm still confused by <~~> 19:21
m: say "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" ~~ /\w+ $<inner>=<~~> \w+/
camelia Nil
codesections why is that Nil?
oddp Now I just need to sprinkle some metaprogramming on top of that to generate all possbile combinations. ;)
thundergnat theres (almost always) some way to break the rules
timotimo no whitespace allowed
oh 19:22
there is no termination condition
only infinitely long texts have any hope of matching

codesections m: say "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" ~~ /\w+ <ws> $<inner>=<~~>? <ws> \w+/ 19:25
camelia 「The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy」
ws => 「 」
inner => 「quick brown fox jumps over the」
ws => 「 」
inner => 「brown fox jumps over」
ws => 「 」
inner => 「fox jumps」
ws => 「 」
ws => …
timotimo i recommend using <.ws> so it doesn't show up in the result 19:27

codesections thanks, I'd forgotten about that. That does clean it up quite a bit :) 19:30

tellable6 2020-07-20T17:42:09Z #raku <[Coke]> pmurias do you have directions on how to generate an updated npm module? Want to make sure we keep up to date on the rakudo.js versions if possible.
Petr37 pmurias, ok, understood 21:02
pmurias Petr37: got a new job at Google so kind of focused on that, before was affected by all the social distancing bullshit pretty bad (and a bit hearbroken) so couldn't get myself to work on it much 21:04

cpan-raku New module released to CPAN! Hash2Class (0.1.0) by 03ELIZABETH 21:29

zacts hello 21:43
is the raku language and syntax implemented in raku on-top of MoarVM or is a bunch of it implemented in C? 21:44
like if I wanted to add a new operator to the language would I just need to know raku, or would I also need to know C?
El_Che raku should be enough 21:46
zacts cool, thanks
El_Che there is moarvm, nqp (subset of raku closer to the metal) and raku
zacts ok 21:47
21:47 NewGreyhawke left
rypervenche zacts: Creating a new operator is very easy to do. andrewshitov.com/2018/10/31/assign...in-perl-6/ 21:56
Hmm, I feel like docs.raku.org/language/optut is rather cluttered. 21:57
zacts oh awesome thanks :-) 21:59
timotimo pretty much all classes, subs, operators are implemented in raku 22:01
the grammar that is used to parse raku code in rakudo is also implemented in nqp 22:02
soon, thanks to the rakuast project, it'll be much more accessible from raku code without having to deal with the idiosyncracies of nqp
22:10 dataangel joined
oddp Might just be due to my inexperience with it and the way nqp usually is formatted, but some of it really reads like the most horrible c++ template metaprogramming code. :( 22:11

adu is there a grammar channel? 23:01
timotimo if you mean on IRC, then i'm not aware of one 23:02

rypervenche adu: Do you have a question about grammars? 23:08
adu not really 23:09
Geth ¦ doc: coke assigned to JJ Issue Change from p6doc to rakudoc github.com/Raku/doc/issues/3203 23:10
adu I haven't used raku since it was called perl6, is there a new file extension? 23:11
timotimo the old ones keep working for quite a while
but we do have rakumod, and rakudoc as well as .raku
adu should new code use .raku? 23:12
timotimo i think i need a bit of confirmation on that
oh, you mean the method?
adu file extension 23:13
timotimo ok
rypervenche Yep, .raku should be used for Raku files. .rakumod for modules. 23:14
Assuming you're on any recent version of Rakudo.
adu looks like Feb 23:17
rakudo-0.2020.02-1.fc32.x86_64 23:18
timotimo modules already put the full filenames in their provides sections, so i can imagine .rakumod will also work properly in older versions
probably not with -Ilib and friends
kawaii Trying to make a method, using the name `user.id { }` and getting an error about a missing block? 23:19
not seen this before, ideas?
timotimo i don't think methods are allowed to have a . in their name just like that 23:25
kawaii ah that's a shame
timotimo so when it sees the . it knws your identifier is over and there ought to be a signature, or the block
kawaii I will git amend and force push so that no one thinks I am a fool
timotimo: `+ a06b4d7...e7106a3 master -> master (forced update)` 23:28
no one will ever know, thanks ;)
what does `\s*` in raku regex signify? one space? an infinite number of spaces? 23:29
[Coke] \s is space - * is a modifier that says "0 or more of the preceding thing" 23:38
m: dd "asdf" ~~ / \s* /
camelia Match.new(:orig("asdf"), :from(0), :pos(0))
[Coke] m: dd ? "asdf" ~~ / \s* /
camelia Match.new(:orig, :from(0), :pos(0))
[Coke] m: dd ?("asdf" ~~ / \s* /)
camelia Bool::True
kawaii ah, thanks :) 23:40

kawaii so I have `~~` in my capture here, `when $message.content ~~ / '<@' '!'? <(\d+)> '>' \s* '++' / { ... }`, if I change that to `==` will it prevent matching when someone puts arbitrary text after the '++`? 23:56
23:59 Ven`` left
timotimo no 23:59
instead you will want to anchor the end with $
