guifa So weird. I can sub EXPORT { ‘&foo’ => my token foo { … } } and the token is usable if I use Foo; inside of a grammar 04:40
But if I say “my method” instead of “my token”, it fails.
Nonetheless, with a regular class, “my method” works without problem

[Coke] ugh. edit a wiki via local git checkout. push. out of date. rebase. push. out of date. rebase. push. out of date. 13:09
(it worked the next time. :)
moritz does it store the whole wiki in a git repo? 13:10
if so, every single page edit could lead to such a conflict. Not very scalable :D
[Coke] moritz: it's azure devops wiki. if you're editing via the front end, I imagine it's a little smarter. 13:11
moritz at $work we have a DNS server with some 7k zone files, each versioned with RCS 13:12
we tried to a switch to git, but there are simply too many changes to make that scale, given that git always records changes as changes to the whole repo, not per file 13:13

xinming Shouldn't the &.code("nok") be the same as $!code("ok"), and not passing the self? 14:10
14:11 domidumont joined
xinming I think the reason &.code("nok") doesn't work is because, it's doing something like, $(&!code)(self, "nok") not expected $($!code)("nok") ?? 14:11

rir How to avoid this downward invasion: 'role Export { method get-exportee-type { ... } }'? 14:47
moritz rir: I don't quite understand the question, can you please elaborate? 14:51
Altreus a role for each type?
14:51 skids joined
lizmat xinming: I think you understand the accessor correctly 14:52
the accessor for &.a *does* just return the code object 14:53
rir A supporting get-exportee-... method seems needed to support the role's deferred method. I'd like a mixin that doesn't require the under class to be instrumented.
lizmat but if you say A.a, you are calling the *accessor* that does not take any arguments 14:54
guifa jmerelo: I can haz signed copy? :-)
Altreus rir: are you saying that you don't want consuming classes to be required to implement get-exportee-type?
as in forced to
lizmat that is why you need to do A.new(a => *+*).a() first to get the code object, and then pass (42.,666) to that code object
rir Altreus: Yes.
guifa slips jmerelo an extra duro y un culín de sidra asturiano fresco 14:55
Altreus rir: well that's what ... means
rir: don't put ... and then you simply have an empty default implementation
these are the only options :) 14:56
rir Altreus: Yes, but I need the class of the consuming object in the role consumed.
Altreus I believe that can be expressed as ::?CLASS
Where this does and doesn't work, I am uncertain
rir That is a var I haven't tried. I'll check it out and report shortly. 14:57
tobs m: role Export { method get-exportee-type { ::?CLASS } }; class A does Export {}; say A.new.get-exportee-type
camelia (A)
Altreus I guess I *can* retain information!
tobs (I thought for sure this would say "Export" because I assumed ::?CLASS to be more lexical, but it's ::?CLASS after all and not ::?ROLE) 14:58
but good for you :-)
Altreus and you called it on A, not Export
m: role Export { method get-exportee-type { ::?ROLE } }; class A does Export {}; say A.new.get-exportee-type
camelia (Export)
Altreus hmm 14:59
m: class A { method a { ::?ROLE } }; say A.new.a
camelia 5===SORRY!5=== Error while compiling <tmp>
No such symbol '::?ROLE'
at <tmp>:1
------> 3class A { method a { ::?ROLE7⏏5 } }; say A.new.a
Altreus aha
tobs since get-exportee-type is a method, I think you could also refer to self.WHAT inside of its implementation in the role and get the type of invocant dynamically 15:00
15:09 domidumont joined
guifa Is there anyway to use a method to create a Match object that doesn’t destroy the caller’s $¢? Apparently I’m doing something wrong and I’ve tracked it down to that 15:16
rir Thanks tobs, Altreus. 15:17
15:18 RobRaku joined
jmerelo guifa hey. I guess you can. But you want me to mail it direct? Or you want me to store it for you for the next time we meet? 15:18
rir In a more purely curious vein: Why is ' in identifiers? And does anyone use it in them?
jmerelo I'm mailing one just today to tbrowder, so if it's the first, tell me now! 15:19
guifa jmerelo: eh, I’d prefer the latter but given the virus I’m not holding out any hope of getting to the peninsula in the near future :-(
jmerelo rir: it's just cool. I seem to remember there was an explanation for it by Larry Wall somewhere. It's consistent with... something
rypervenche rir: I imagine it would be useful to show possession, so probably not super useful until you need it. Then it makes it a bit clearer what it means. 15:20
guifa so I’ll need to go with the first. PM or e-mail me where I can pay you and I’ll do that right away
jmerelo guifa: yep, that's the thing. Nor in-person Perl/Raku events. So best to nail it now. Email me your mail address
guifa I know I’ve used a ‘ in an identifier before and was happy for it, but I can’t remember what it was exactly 15:21
15:21 moony joined
guifa Beyond English’s possession, both - and ‘ are used a lot in other languages, so it makes sense to include them if we’re also doing all the diacritics as valid identifiers too 15:23
my $to-bind; my $p’arreyar; 15:24
rir I don't object re: '. I just haven't seen it in code yet. 15:30
jmerelo m: my $se-h'acabat = True
camelia ( no output )
rir Oops, I forgot that I had a motive beyond curiosity. Is there an Identifer parser module? 15:32
guifa You’d need to coopt the Raku grammar — modules can change the definition at runtime :-) 15:33
MasterDuke the Test-Helper module in roast has things like `doesn't-warn`
maybe Perl6::Parser has something 15:34
guifa but the definition of an identifier is the following:
token identifier { <.ident> [ <.apostrophe> <.ident> ]* }
15:34 domidumont left
guifa ident is available to garden variety regexen, and apostrophe is just <[‘\-]> 15:35
rir I will bow to greater wisdom, guifa, but that isn't a full and extended (versioned?) id definition is it? 15:36
Geth ecosystem: hythm7++ created pull request #556:
Re-add Pakku to the Ecosystem
15:38
guifa rir: that’s defined in the grammar as a name, which is defined as [<identifier> <morename>* | <morename>+]
rir guifa: Thanks, I'll look at that. With a good spot to start, maybe I'll find it more enlightning. 15:43

tobs rir: I remember seeing it here github.com/Raku/whateverable/blob/...e.pm6#L114
Altreus can't help but notice guifa's apostrophe is a real apostrophe as well 15:46
tobs what I like most about it being allowed in identifiers, though, is that this feature does not interfere with using ' as a prefix or postfix operator :-)
guifa rir: <ident>, fwiw, is defined as /<:L+[_]> <:L+:Nd+[‘+]>*/ 15:47
err
I mean /<:L+[_]> <:L+:Nd+[_]>*/ 15:48
basically, alphabetic followed by alphanumeric and always allowing for an underscore

Doc_Holliwood when you move your mouse from the upper left of your screens to the lower right, do you have to move your wrist? 19:51
bending does not count as movement, i mean changing the location on the desk 19:52
lizmat stopped using a mouse because of the onset of RSI 19:54
lizmat uses a trackpad for more than 18 years now
El_Che I use a trackball home and at work 19:55
(which nowadays are the sane place) 19:56
MasterDuke no
19:58 leah2 joined
El_Che I only use a right hand mouse for gaming 19:58
sometimes I use a mouse with my left hand 19:59
Doc_Holliwood i have a colleague who has his mouse set so that the corners of the mousepad and the corners of the screen match up
El_Che maybe with those huge apple ones
Doc_Holliwood i found that super weird, that must put so much strain on the arm
lizmat fwiw, I have acceleration and double-click speed all set to max 20:00
which means I only need a very small part of the touchpad to move the mouse all round the screen
Doc_Holliwood same
El_Che the fun of a track ball is that you can roll the ball to get fast somewhere
Doc_Holliwood can you play with a trackball? like aiming? 20:01
El_Che yes, you can, but I have a xbox controller for the computer 20:02
better than mouse :)
Doc_Holliwood heretic!
El_Che for AOE trackball is ok, but often I use a mouse there
(I literally play something every months, so no RSI risk there)
I have this one at home: :hierarchy: - "%{tier}" - "%{environment}" - common 20:03

El_Che I am a pretty fly for a 90s guy
:)
I think the one I use at work dates fron late that period 20:09
it's a cabled one
it even had a usb to serial-nouse-port converter
codesections I've never done anything with fancy mouses/trackballs. I did just get a new keyboard -- which I'm loving even though it means I (temporarily) can't type even half-decently
