to refer to the Bool type as opposed to Booleans. This commit addresses this issue and helps address #3517.

demostanis Hello everyone! I'm having yet another issue with regexes, I wonder if I'll ever get good at it one day... With codesection's help yesterday I've learned about the `<(...)>` thing which allows me to capture only what I need in regex... Though, I have the following case: `"AABBCC DDDD AABBCC" ~~ / [ [ AABBCC | DDDD ] \s* ]* /` this matches the entire string. Now I'd want only to have the AABBCC, not the DDDD. 11:16
So I do that: `"AABBCC DDDD AABBCC" ~~ / [ <([ AABBCC)> | DDDD ] \s* ]* /`, but it will only match the first AABBCC (I think it's not considering the * quantifier) What should I do? Thanks...
11:19 andrzejku left 11:24 andrzejku joined 11:31 abraxxa left
Altai-man_ demostanis, hi! Can you please specify the rules? Are `DDDD` delimiters? What is the task here? 11:38
moritz demostanis: I don't think <( and )> can really ever work the way you want them to work 11:39
they are markers "the match starts here" and "the match ends here", but you cannot use them to chop up a string to match, not match, and then match again
cpan-raku New module released to CPAN! Discogs::API (0.0.1) by 03ELIZABETH 11:40
El_Che the ecosystem grant request is strange. TPF support would suggest approval of a very specific implementation 11:43
is it just me?
Altai-man_ El_Che, well... It is undeniable the current ecosystem options have their own flaws. At the same time, there is no Raku solution around and it is a great time to get one. The cost is high IMO, but that is living level difference, US is expensive, I imagine. Other than that it seems sane to me. 11:45
I have what I'd call "not the best" experience with CPAN and I am tired to be annoyed with the "fixes were commited but version in zef cache still fails to install, nuke it" thing. 11:47
Also, isn't TPF rakudo grants support a very specific implementation? 11:48
El_Che yes, all the options are terrible in my opinion, including the grant request one
Altai-man_ El_Che, it's time to discuss what can be done better then? 11:50
El_Che personally I would copy the go way
( and I want to have a look at what activestate is doing with their new pkg manager)
Altai-man_ `import github/foo`?
El_Che mostly the git tag based import, not the syntax 11:51
it can be a line in meta6
Altai-man_ I imagine this can be discussed given the grant author is willing to cooperate. 11:52
11:52 reach_satori_ left
El_Che my point is is that it may be too early to pin an specific implementation 11:52
11:52 reach_satori_ joined
El_Che maybe other languages have also good idea's 11:52
gfldex Is there a way to tell if a IO::Handle was opened for writing? 11:53
El_Che but replicating CPAN/python/npm sound like copying the worst of those languages
that's why often people *hate* deploying projects in those languages 11:54
11:54 JJMerelo joined
El_Che if the ecosystem is fragile, vendoring (keeping deps in the project) repo is a huge win 11:54
demostanis moritz: How would I do? 11:55
Altai-man_ demostanis, what are you trying to do? 11:56
demostanis Matching an .ini file with multi-line support using \, with moritz's recommendations, my code matches a single value using `token value { [ <normal-value>+ | <backslash> | <.newline> ]* }`, a normal-value matches anything but comments, new lines and backslashes, a new line matches a new line preceded by a backslash, and backslash matches a \ before \S 12:00
I would want to get normal-value and backslash as a string
Altai-man_ demostanis, if you want to disregard backslashes / newlines-spaces, make tokens you care about named ones and process then in actions class afterwards. 12:04
Or set the thing you want to be positional capture and handle it.
m: say ("AABBCC DDDD AABBCC" ~~ / [ [ (AABBCC) | DDDD ] \s* ]* /)[0]
camelia [「AABBCC」 「AABBCC」]
Altai-man_ ^ is this what you want? 12:05
demostanis God damn. It was that easy. It solved my problem, thank you so much. I feel stupid now 12:07
Altai-man_ No need to, it is tricky when you start.
demostanis Another, unrelated, question, what's dist.ini file and what manages it? I get no results when I search on docs.raku.org 12:09
Altai-man_ I believe this file is used by CPAN and some people are uploading Raku modules there, so it is not Raku specific. 12:10
And it is not necessary to distribute a module.
demostanis Oh ok, thanks
JJMerelo Hey 12:17
Tomorrow the 20th aniversary calendar starts... And we still need lots of articles. 12:18
Altai-man_ JJMerelo, do we need 20 articles or?
JJMerelo We're looking at short papers that dissect one of the original RFCs and relate them to current Raku stuff github.com/Raku/advent/tree/master/20th
Altai-man_ right 12:19
Altai-man_ I see.
JJMerelo So, 13 to go.
El_Che JJMerelo: to late now, but I think that stressing that Perl6 is 20y old kind of clashes with the "new" exciting raku lang narrative :) 12:21
JJMerelo Python is even older, but it's still marketed as exiciting and up-and-coming
El_Che I also need _you_ to write something :-) 12:22
And it's not the language, but the inception.
The way it was designed is pretty unique, and I think we need to stress that, as well as honor and appreciate the people who created those first RFCs in the summer of 2000 12:23
El_Che I get the motivation
JJMerelo They could have been surfing the dot-com bubble, but they were spending the time doing that. So kudos.
El_Che I am just pointing out the mixed signals
with perl 7 coming (or not) there is need to create as much distance as possible 12:24
Altai-man_ True. But more stuff on the net is a cool thing. Including `Raku programming language` there helps e.g. TIOBE and SEO in general. 12:25
JJMerelo perl 7 is coming, there's no doubt about that 12:26
El_Che is it
JJMerelo I mean, not my fight or mine to say.
What's mine to say is : we''ve decided to get ahead with this celebration, and we're gonna do it. 12:27
Wanna help, that's fine.
El_Che Reading the mailinglist I feel they are in a python2->3+perl5->6 road
JJMerelo Don't wanna help but talk about mixed signals, that's fine too. But I don't know sh*t about marketing or, for that matter, signals beyond kill -KILL. I know about celebrating a process, the people, and what brought us here. 12:28
Which is what I'm trying to do.
lizmat I've unsubscribed from *all* Perl mailinglists, I feel much better now
the elephant has left the room, and everybody is staring at each other 12:29
leont It is my problem, and I really wish it wasn't :-/
El_Che lizmat was the unifying factor

Claim RFC 112
[ptc] moritz: oh dear, I'm becoming so German. I read the end of your question as "112 Postleitzahl"! 15:57
demostanis Is there a way to improve this piece of code (to make it not repetitive): 16:01
$!thing = %hash{'thing'}; 16:02
$!other-thing = %hash{'other-thing'};
16:04 andrzejku left
gfldex demostanis: heavily depends on the context 16:08
demostanis The code is inside a the submethod BUILD of a normal class

gfldex demostanis: gist.github.com/f577d9816af2b6b2dc...e92a3ace10 16:30
so the answer is yes bug slow
s/bug/but/ 16:31
also, you may want to ask that question again when we got proper macros 16:32
Altai-man_ Hmm...
There is a much easier solution, no? 16:33
rypervenche Couldn't you also do something like: ($!thing, $!other-thing) = %hash{'thing', 'other-thing'};
Altai-man_ m: class C { has $.foo; has $.bar; method BUILD(:$!foo, :$!bar) {} }; my %h = foo => 42, bar => 100; say C.new(|%h)
camelia C.new(foo => 42, bar => 100)
rypervenche That wouldn't scale, and I'd rather have separate lines for better readability, but yeah.
demostanis This works, thanks. What do you mean by proper macros? 16:35
16:36 zacts joined
demostanis Also rypervenche and Altai-man_ solutions won't work in my case as the hash is created depending on an argument passed to the submethod BUILD. 16:37
gfldex there is currently work done to rewrite AST handling in Rakudo. That is likely going to get us hygenic macros that actually work.
