sarna is there really no way of preventing Nil propagation in method chains? I'd prefer it to fail fast :( 10:13
10:19 sjm_uk left
sarna can I maybe specify that I want to take `self:D`? not sure how to do that.. 10:20
oh no, that wouldn't work, since every method called on Nil returns Nil >.> 10:21
10:25 [Sno] left 10:29 JJMerelo joined, yangzq50 joined
codesections sarna: hmmm, you seem to be right, that doesn't work; I'm a bit surprised 10:29
m: class A { method n { Nil }; method non-nil(A:D $:) { 42}}; say A.new.n.non-nil
camelia Nil
sarna codesections: I've found this - stackoverflow.com/questions/601552...2#60155442
I don't find the reasoning (not having to insert null checks between chains) that convincing 10:30
m: class A { method n { Nil }; method non-nil(A:D $:) { 42}}; my $foo = A.new.n; say $foo.non-nil
camelia No such method 'non-nil' for invocant of type 'Any'
in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1
sarna this dies (as it should), but you have to break up your method chains like this, every time.. 10:31
codesections And that makes sense, given how assigning Nil works 10:33
sarna yeah, but I'd say the default behavior is LTA - nothing less fun than hunting for a bug that propagated from something deep down the call stack 10:34
Nil carries absolutely no information 10:35
codesections m: class A { method n { Nil }; method non-nil(A:D $:) { 42}}; say (my $ = A.new.n).non-nil
camelia No such method 'non-nil' for invocant of type 'Any'
in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1
codesections that's pretty ugly, though
sarna it is, and the ugliness is O(n) where n is the number of methods in a chain 10:37
codesections Yep! 10:38
Though, I think it'd work without the `my` which helps (very slightly)
sarna maybe raku has something like dart's cascade notation? that would help - stackoverflow.com/questions/494477...ot-in-dart 10:40
I may be onto something 10:42
m: class A { method n { Nil }; method non-nil(A:D $:) { 42}}; $ = A.new.n; $ .= non-nil; .say
camelia No such method 'non-nil' for invocant of type 'Any'
in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1
sarna just replace all dots with `$ .=` et voila 10:43
codesections Is that really less ugly than 10:44
m: class A { method n { Nil }; method non-nil(A:D $:) { 42}}; say ($ =A.new.n).non-nil
camelia No such method 'non-nil' for invocant of type 'Any'
in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1
sarna semicolons instead of parens? :D 10:45
mine would read better when splitted across multiple lines 10:46
10:47 yangzq50 left
codesections oooh, I think I have something: 10:47
m: sub postfix:<‽>($a) { $ = $a}; class A { method n { Nil }; method non-nil(A:D $:) { 42}}; say A.new.n‽.non-nil
camelia No such method 'non-nil' for invocant of type 'Any'
in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1
sarna codesections: what's that? 10:49
oh darn it's your own operator 10:50
I searched for it in the docs :DDD
codesections :D
sarna I love this
also I hate this
codesections Agreed 10:51
sarna noo you can't do ‽<newline>. :((( 10:53
all the methods have to be on one line
10:54 [Sno] joined
codesections Hmmm, I've run into that problem with &.subroutine method calls too 10:56
tobs it's probably better to extinguish that behavior at the source if you dislike it and don't want to change your entire code to a new method call operator: 11:01
m: Nil.^find_method("FALLBACK").wrap: -> $, $ { fail 'method call on Nil' }; class A { method n { Nil }; method non-nil (A:D $:) { 42 } }; say A.new.n.non-nil 11:02
camelia method call on Nil
in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1
sarna monkey patching Nil because I don't like a design decision? is that legal?
tobs by keeping the return value of that wrap call you can make the change lexical by unwrapping at scope exit 11:03
actually, I am not sure how stable wrapping core class's methods is
sarna that still seems heavy-handed, and confusing to whoever will come and look at my code 11:04
codesections tobs: I like that approach. It strikes me that forgetting to unwrap that at the end of a scope could break … lots of things, though
11:08 aluaces joined, aluaces is now known as alberto
codesections sarna: I'm not getting an error when breaking the method chain across multiple lines with the new operator 11:09
11:09 alberto is now known as Guest47135
sarna codesections: where do you break it? I tried `foo?!<newline>.bar` and I kept getting "bogus operator" 11:09

kawaii codesections: trust me, no one is capable of reading anything I write :)
codesections :D 11:27
sarna codesections: repl.it/repls/OnerlookedAngryClimate#main.raku take a look here, without line 8 it works fine 11:28
codesections hmm, odd. I *bet* that's something to do with the precedence/associativity of the operator, but I'm not sure. docs.raku.org/language/functions#Precedence 11:31
SmokeMachine is there a way of getting the block that called the current block? 11:35
11:38 JJMerelo left
codesections SmokeMachine: I assume CALLER doesn't do what you want, because you want the actual _block_ and not a way to look up symbols in that block? 11:42
SmokeMachine codesections: it would be... but it doesn't seem to work inside a Proxy's fetch block... :( 11:46

SmokeMachine I was trying to do something like this to make rerun every block where the variable was used when it changes it value: 11:50

kawaii Is there a clean way of removing a value from an @array if what we try to `push` already exists? 12:25
andinus why push if it already exists? 12:27
moritz you mean, moving an element to the end?
12:27 lichtkind joined
kawaii andinus: because the $end-user doesn't know if it exists or not :) but you're saying I should check first before pushing in my code? 12:28
12:28 Maylay joined
kawaii I was just wondering if there was some built-in logic 12:28
moritz kawaii: does the order of elements matter?
kawaii nope
moritz then maybe a Set is the better data structure 12:29
because there adding an element that's already in there is a no-op
kawaii I was thinking Hash
moritz and checking if an element is in a set is fast, compared to an array 12:30
kawaii: a Set is basically Hash without values
do you need to store values?
kawaii I don't, so you're probably right about using a Set
moritz I use hashes a lot in p5, but python has taught me to take sets seriously :D 12:31
lizmat and then the SetHash variety, if you want a mutable one
12:32 finanalyst left
moritz lizmat++ good point, forgot that sets are immutable by default 12:32
kawaii ah, yes I need to add and remove from it regularly :)
moritz: `my SetHash[Str] $monitored-channels;`, so once I've defined it, how would I `push` a value here? :) 12:35
It's basically storing just a few hundred strings
(but by default will be empty) 12:36
moritz my SetHash[Str] $monitored-channels .= new(); $monitored-channels<stuff> = True;

lizmat kawaiiL it you're using a SetHash, you can also use the .set and .unset methods 13:03
m: my %sh is SetHash; %sh.set(1,2,3,4); dd %sh; %sh.unset(2,3); dd %sh 13:04
camelia Too many positionals passed; expected 2 arguments but got 5
in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1
lizmat hmmm
kawaii lizmat: `$monitored-channels{$message.channel-id} = !$monitored-channels{$message.channel-id};` I'm doing it like this to flip between adding and removing based on the user running a command :)

SetHash.new(4,1)
lizmat hmmm... I guess that a. needs documentation, and b. another slurpy candidate
codesections I have documenting that (and BagHash.add) on my to-do list 13:05
lizmat codesections: could you create an issue for the above problem> 13:06
tobs m: my $b = True; $b .= not; say $b # kawaii: another way to toggle a boolean without mentioning it twice 13:07
lizmat ?
camelia False
codesections lizmat: will do!
lizmat codesections++
kawaii tobs: there are too many ways of doing these things, raku has spoiled me :) 13:08
codesections tobs: the only inconsistency there is that $b != $b _looks_ like it should do the same thing, but that means something else entirely :) 13:09
13:12 aborazmeh joined, aborazmeh left, aborazmeh joined
tobs yeah, I guess Raku made a concession to the widespread use of != there. 13:12
13:13 gnufr33dom joined
codesections agreed. In retrospect (and with the knowledge of how many people will know at least a little JS, with its broken comparitors), I kind of wish we'd gone with `!==` 13:14
lizmat codesections: but you can 13:15
m: say 42 !=== 666
camelia True
lizmat m: say 42 !== 666
camelia True
lizmat prefix ! is a meta op in that context 13:16
so if you want your code to be more readable in that respect, you can
codesections Ok, fair point. But I meant that we could have not had `!=` be a comparison operator, which would have freed it up to be the negation operator with assignment 13:17
to keep the parallelism with .= and other assignment meta ops
jdv79 =! isn't good enough for you;) 13:19
codesections jdv79: ha, I didn't know you could put the whitespace like that! 13:21
lizmat m: sub infix:<!=>(\a,\b) { a = !b }; my $a != True; say $a 13:26
camelia False
codesections :D 13:27
tobs for the original task we'd want this to be "prefix mutating unary metaop"-lookalike though 13:30
m: sub prefix:<!=>($a is rw) { $a .= not }; my $b = True; say $b; say !=$b; say $b
camelia True
False
False

AlexDaniel lizmat: != and ≠ are roughly the same in performance, !== is much slower 13:40
pretty much any uncommon syntax is several times slower 13:41

lizmat AlexDaniel: nothing a "constant &infix:<!==> = &infix:<!=>" wouldn't fix 13:44

lizmat codesections: they are the same

camelia 0.04128212
AlexDaniel not enough iterations and possibly too much stuff optimized away
lizmat yeah, but anyway, in the same ballpark
codesections Is `note $msg; exit 1` (or other non-zero number) the preferred way to exit a CLI app when printing an error msg to the end user? I thought `die $msg` would be better, but it adds `===SORRY!===`, which the end user doesn't really need to see... 13:56
lizmat codesections: that's how I would do it if it was a compile time error and I would want to get rid of the SORRY
codesections lizmat++ 13:57
(someday, I need to understand Raku's notion of "compile time" better. The error I encountered was based on calling EVALFILE on a file that the user passes in with a CLI flag... and yet that's a compile-time error? I guess because EVALFILE is "compiling" the file before/as it runs it? 13:59
)
lizmat yup 14:00
moritz yes, compile and run time can be nested in each other
EVAL/EVALFILE nests a compile time inside run time
lizmat one of the cases of tormenting the implementor :-) 14:01
moritz and BEGIN (and other constructs) nest in a run time during compile time
tobs rir: I think you would need to wrap a Str inside an IO::Handle like interface and `temp` assign that to $*ERR. There is a module for that: github.com/hoelzro/p6-io-string 14:02
14:02 aborazmeh left
codesections wow. That's all crazy powerful. But also makes some things a bit harder to reason about. I'm used to thinking of "it's done at compile time" as "it's free at runtime". But I guess that isn't always true with Raku 14:02
(Which might matter as we start doing more compile-time programming with RakuAST)
rir codesections: Tanstafl. tobs: Thanks. 14:04

xinming m: my $x = "t"; class T { method t { "T v".say } }; (T."$x").raku.say; 15:09
camelia 5===SORRY!5=== Error while compiling <tmp>
Quoted method name requires parenthesized arguments. If you meant to concatenate two strings, use '~'.
at <tmp>:1
------> 3ss T { method t { "T v".say } }; (T."$x"7⏏5).raku.say;
xinming I know that T."$x"() works fine. Is it possible that in the future, raku can return the code for T."$x" kind of syntax? 15:10
guifa I’ve always wondered about that requirement myself 15:12
moritz what do you mean by "return the code for"? 15:14
return the method instead of calling it? 15:15
codesections and, relatedly, why does `T."$x"()` work, but T::("$x") does not?
moritz T.^lookup($x)
codesections moritz: I think xinming just meant "restore the functionality to be able to do"
moritz because methods live in a classes (or roles) method table, not in a scope
and T::($x) is a lookup in a scope 15:16
codesections: if you want the method object, and not call it, use T.^lookup($x)
or T.^find_method($x); the two differ a bit when it comes to role and auto punning -- cannot remember which one is better for your use case right now 15:17
codesections yeah, I get all that :). I've been diving pretty deep into these introspection methods
I'm saying that there's some special casing to get T."$x"() to work
guifa moritz: what’s the logic in requiring () though for calling? Obviously, normally you just need to do foo.call-method, and not foo.call-method(). It’s seemed odd to me to require the parentheses for the quoted method, though I’m sure there’s a reason 15:18
codesections it has to resolve "$x" into `t`, and then lookup `t` in the T method table
and it seems like the same special casing could just as easily apply to T::("$x"), and increase consistency by doing so 15:19
moritz guifa: that has to do with producing better error messages for accidentally using . as the concat operator (a common p5ism)
guifa perlisms strike again lol
xinming moritz: yes, I do mean return the method object with the specified name.
hmm, Ignore me, I just realized, that calling method doesn't require the (). 15:20
so, require $obj."$method-name"() is fine. ;-) 15:21
guifa The recent question on SO about adding a sub infix:«>>» keeps reminding me how catering to users from other languages can sometimes prevent fluent Raku users from doing certain things :-)
moritz on the one hand, I hate that so many p5isms shape current-day raku. OTOH I still use Perl 5 quite a lot, and those error messages often saved my butt
guifa . o O ( although why anyone would really WANT to have a >> infix given how it already pulls at least double duty elsewhere… )

Uniformize examples' output

And while here, if we would like an example to produce an output, we might as well call `say` :)

Uniformize examples' output
codesections (grr, getting the output to print correctly there made the syntax less pretty and undermined the point I was making. Oh well)

xinming In this case, Should $.B::a work as expected?
hmm, ignore me, I think I realized, that $.meth is to mean $(self.meth) literally 17:22
rypervenche m: 1 ==> {say $_ + 1}(); 17:37
camelia 2
rypervenche codesections: Better? Or not what you wanted?
codesections Meh, close enough :) That's technically printing out the sum of $_ + 1 and then returning True from the block, and I was printing out the return value of the block. But I didn't really care about printing – I just like that we can pass args in from the left when it's clearer to do so! 17:38
17:40 sftp joined
codesections wait... it just occurred to me that we can also do 1.&{$_ + 1} 17:41
rypervenche You win. 17:44

brass Hey, is there a way to limit floats to 2 decimal places when printing? 18:28
Or I guess it's a Num, not a float 18:29
codesections m: say '%.2f'.sprintf(20.sqrt) 18:30
camelia 4.47
codesections brass ^^^
docs are here: docs.raku.org/language/independent...ne_sprintf 18:31
tobs or 20.sqrt.fmt('%.2f')
brass Oh awesome, thank you
codesections tobs: oh, I didn't know about that one. Any idea why we have two such similar subs? Just for TIMTOWTDI? 18:32
tobs pretty sure that fmt uses sprintf internally, but one is a method on (format) Strs, the other on Cool 18:33
codesections makes sense 18:34
tobs depends on what is the subject and what the object of that statement in your head, so yes TIMTOWTDI

brass Is it intentional that when I run something like &print.^methods I get completely borked output? 20:03
I get a ton of lines mixed in with the methods that just say "implementation detail and has no serviceable parts inside" and it makes the output unreadable 20:04
Like this imgur.com/WaI2SZO 20:07
Like I can use something like `&print.^methods.grep(!*.gist.contains(" "))' but that seems unnecessary 20:11
lizmat brass: what are you trying to achieve? 20:12
[Coke] when you dump them methods, you're getting a gist of the methods, not the method names.

lizmat perhaps this is of use: gist.github.com/lizmat/4bb3e1d997f...85815a431d 20:42
stoned75 hi it seems the independent routine join's first parameter has a default value, how can I trigger its usage ? 20:43
cf. github.com/rakudo/rakudo/blob/mast....pm6#L2146
lizmat interesting: I don't think you can, and it's there for documentation / introspection only 20:44

stoned75 that's what I thought but I don't get how it is useful
lizmat it could be considered dead code 20:46

raku-bridge <primetoxinz> Hello, I'm working a module that is doing some native calls and I have a Pointer[int32] that I'm trying to get the int value out of. my $p = Pointer[int32].new(); # Native call that assigns the value say $p.deref; This causes a segfault. What am I missing? If I say $p I can see the value is visible NativeCall::Types::Pointer[int32]<0x2> 20:51
