randyl22 hi all. Ruby has a "delete_if" method on an array, that deletes all elements for which a block evaluates to true. 01:39
is there a way to do something similar in Raku?
My first thought is to grep for the inverse of the block and reassign to the array. 01:40
Grinnz i dont know about in raku, but there is a port of the perl way i'd suggest modules.raku.org/dist/List::UtilsB...ock--array
randyl22 I didn't know about that port. Thanks. 01:41

tbrowder no prob, thnx. what happened to laptop. hardware failure? 10:44
JJMerelo tbrowder I think it's related to an upgrade of the Linux kernel clashing with UEFI. But really no idea until I take it to the shop. 10:51
tbrowder erg
JJMerelo ^I think^the good technician from my trusted shop told me^
tbrowder what os
JJMerelo It's simply stuck at boot, I can't even bring up the boot menu or the system boot 10:52
Ubuntu 20.04
tbrowder bummer, go debian!
JJMerelo :-) I should do that. You mean "stable", right?
tbrowder yes 10:55
i lovee 10:56
love the mate desktop
JJMerelo I generally use Gnome shell
But I guess that's available there too.
tbrowder i think mate is based on the older gnome before the millenials caught the mac craze 10:57
JJMerelo :-) 10:58
I've rarely used Debian... I started with Slackware, then Redhat, then Fedora, switched to Ubuntu when Fedora mangled the RAID devices I used. 10:59
But Ubuntu 18.04 already eliminated Perl for Python... So maybe I should go to Debian. 11:00

codesections abraxxa: have you tried sway/what are your thoughts on it? If I used i3, I'd be really tempted to make the jump to wayland 12:02
12:04 maettu joined
abraxxa codesections: yes, works but the HiDPI scaling works less good than X11 with Xft.dpi set correctly 12:08
codesections Fair enough. I bet they'll get there. And the main dev seems like a good guy 12:09
abraxxa main pain point for me is that the indicator icons aren't clickable
codesections personally, I'm still waiting for a static WM on wayland before I switch
(because I'm weird like that :D) 12:10
abraxxa static WM?
codesections Yeah – one that doesn't dynamically resize windows. I think ratpoison was the first, I currently use StumpWM 12:11
abraxxa don't know those 12:12
i3 and sway doesn't do that as well until you tell it to do so
codesections I previously used bspwm, which can be static or dynamic
StumpWM is a lot of fun (if you're into that sort of thing) since it runs as a common lisp interpreter and is configurable in all the Emacs-like ways you might expect from that. Not as lightweight as some but, like I said, fun if you're weird in the specific ways I am 12:15
rypervenche lizmat: Oh! That worked! So much simpler than I thought. Is there a way to do something similar with a method as well? 12:45
abraxxa codesections: team vim here and I don't customize that neither
lizmat rypervenche: get the Method object you want, then .^add_method it with the new name 12:46
.^add_method($name, $method) I seem to recall 12:47
afk for a few hours&
codesections abraxxa: I can respect that – I used vim (and then neovim) for quite a while and now use emacs with vim bindings
abraxxa most of the time I use Atom anyways because I don't like menu-less editors because I can't remember 4k keyboard combinations 12:49
codesections Are you worried about Atom now that it's Microsoft's second electron-based text editor? 12:50
I don't have a personal interest, since I don't use either, but as an outsider it sure looks like they're prioritizing VSCode over Atom 12:51
abraxxa i tried VScode and don't know why people like it more than Atom 12:52
.oO( because it's not nuclear! ) </troll>
codesections Yeah, I don't really get it either (again, without much experience with either, though I've tried both out for a bit). They sure *do* seem to prefer VScode, though: triplebyte.com/blog/editor-report-...tudio-code 12:56

colomon_ hi all! just realized I have wandered myself into an awkward corner and wondered if anyone had a clever solution. 14:53
I’m porting one of my C++ code generators from Perl to Raku.
I was all excited that qq:to eliminates indentation as that will make my embedded C++ code look much better in the context of the Raku code. 14:54
BUT I’ve just realized that { is now a special character in a qq string, right?
escaping that everywhere will obviously uglify my embedded C++ code. 14:55
is there a sane way to specify a string which handles variable interpolation but not { interpolation? 14:56
jdv79 wouldn't that be something about how Q is used?
no idea though 14:57
colomon_ huh, maybe? never heard of Q before, but I’m looking now. 14:58
tobs colomon_: there is a very sane way docs.raku.org/language/quoting#Lit...strings:_Q
you can specify which interpolations to activate and which not and `{ … }` and `$var` are different types. 14:59
colomon_ jdv79++ tobs++ # currently reading
this seems perfect at first glance

colomon_ Seems like what I want is Q:s:a:h:b:to/END/ 15:05

guifa I feel like I’ve asked this before, but is there any way for a trait to have effect on the interior of method/sub block? 15:18
something like
sub foo is bar { #`[implied ‘use Bar’] … } 15:19
moritz not directly, I think 15:20
tobs colomon_: that is almost qq. I'd expect you can use instead qq and forbid the two you don't want: 15:21
colomon_ what’s the forbidding sequence?
tobs m: my $x = $*USER; say qq:!c:!f[Hello $x, today is { Date.today }.] 15:22
camelia Hello evalbot, today is { Date.today }.
colomon_ tobs++
guifa moritz: reason I ask is the new Test::Inline module I made based on codesections++ desire to bring testing inside of module files (for accessing private stuff) 15:23
It feels clunky specifying “use Test” for most of the test subs. 15:24
Actually… could a custom declarator work and import the symbols in from the main Test module? so instead of having to do “sub foo is test”, I could just have “test { … }” ? 15:26
moritz I'm not deep enough into the guts to be able to answer that question :-( 15:27
15:29 billN1VUX joined, Sgeo joined
guifa Meh, probably having people say “use Test” isn’t a big deal. Most test subs will probably have more than the line or two that I use in my test files ha. 15:37

billN1VUX does Raku have something beyond FatRat that extends deep precision to sqrt, exp, e, pi, which are intrinsically irrational ? 16:46
p6: exp(π*sqrt(163)) - (640320**3 + 744)
camelia WARNINGS for <tmp>:
Useless use of "-" in expression "exp(π*sqrt(163)) - (640320**3 + 744)" in sink context (line 1)

camelia -480
16:47 zacts left
billN1VUX The above expression is a famous false near-integer equality, but with limited precision, Raku is off by either 480 or 1024 (using e**() instead of exp()) rather than the expected 7e-12 . For most purposes this small a % error is fine but ... this near-integer can't be done with FatRat since sqrt and exp will promote to Num. 16:50

billN1VUX thundergnat - thank you, that's headed in the same direction at least 17:27
Hmm, Rat::Precise is half way and the RosettaCode example does the other bits needed, nice. Thanks! 17:33
(The bonus continued fraction version is delightful, works with standard FatRat, but both slow and needing to look up or separately calculate the continued fraction versions of expressions :-D )

tobs billN1VUX: one afternoon, I toyed around with at least getting radicals of Rats supported exactly via CGAL. Having an exact type for &exp and co. seems harder though. 17:55
It's a very rough proof of concept but you can take it and adapt it if you want github.com/taboege/raku-Real-Algebraic 17:56
billN1VUX right, an exact type for irrationals is of course impossible
17:57 sena_kun left
billN1VUX (unless one includes implied infinite via continued fractions or other stream computation via promises or whatever) 17:58
tobs it's not impossible, it's just not a numerator/denominator pair
if the number is algebraic, as k-th roots are, you can work with its minimal polynomial instead 17:59
billN1VUX that's fine for algebraic irrationals :-D
tobs but it only goes so far, and stops short of &exp and &log
billN1VUX yep
transcendental constants and functions don't play nicely in a world where it's either Exact representation or hardware float Num. 18:06
tobs aha, so to Rakudo the above number is integral as far as it sees: $x - $x.Int == 0e0. On the other end, Mathematica can deduce that it is not an integer. 18:07
and with that I have no idea how to help. I just did some computational geometry once where algebraics were just enough :)
billN1VUX thundergnat are you responsible for the continued fraction Raku version of Ramanujan's constant too ? That's an elegant "exact" representation but not going to have nice automatic conversions ;-D 18:08
Well, a *confirmation* that a generic `bignum` arbitrary precision float isn't here for transcendentals is useful, thank you both 18:09
I'm trying to do more of my one-liner tests of concepts in raku, and hitting something it didn't seem to do was startling - you've confirmed i'm reading the doc right, at least :-D. 18:10
thundergnat billN1VUX: No, that was actually written / contributed by SqrtNegInf. He has some high precision routines stashed away in his github repository. Lets see.... Ah! github.com/SqrtNegInf/Rosettacode-...n-routines (Not mine, though I contributed to it) 18:11
billN1VUX heh, i like their nick :-D
Good stuff 18:12
