frost-lab I'm curious about that how to declare a function with variadic parameters using NativeCall ? 08:13
It seems that that is not mentioned in the document. 08:16
moon-child can you just declare a slurpy param? 08:24
m: use NativeCall; sub printf(Str $fmt, *@args) is native('c') { * }; printf("hello, %s", "world") 08:25

moon-child hmm 08:26
frost-lab I also tried ^^^ :), so I'm curious about that. 08:27
moon-child would look deeper, but quite late here so--good night and good luck!
frost-lab good night! 08:28

It closes #3144, which listed Buf instead of Blob. Also, explanation essentially read aloud code.

jjatria I had to disable precompilation on a module because I keep bumping into a serialisation error that doesn't give me much info on what is wrong: gitlab.com/jjatria/pop/-/commit/af...47fa0ceaec 10:40
Does anybody have any idea what might be going on?
The error in particular is "Serialization Error: missing static code ref for closure '' (gen/moar/World.nqp:2597)"
Seems like I might not be the first person to think this is LTA: github.com/rakudo/rakudo/issues/1471 10:42

nine We use NAT64 and DNS64 to connect to GitHub. Mathias replaced the trick-or-treat daemon with unbound for that this week. Maybe that's got some issues still 12:09

12:55 linkable6 joined
smolck Oh cool, thank you! 12:55
MasterDuke i don't remember how much our docs go into the differences between the backends (maybe not at all), but that might be a good issue to raise in the docs repo also. or stackoverflow 12:56
i can say that the jvm backend is not the primary one (anymore), so it definitely has warts and doesn't do as much as the moarvm backend 12:57
smolck Looking through I didn't see any docs on the topic (except for how to build the different backends in the Rakudo README and maybe some small mentions here and there), fwiw 12:58
But yeah I have read around and seen people saying that sort of thing about the JVM backend
To me, it would be really cool to be able to use Raku in the same setting as one could use, say, Scala or Kotlin, but if that's not possible then no worries 12:59

MasterDuke fwiw, there appear to be a couple existing SO questions/answers about java/raku interop, though you'll need to search for perl 6

lizmat smolck: one of the big deficiencies of the JVM backend is the lack of support for NFG 13:06
MasterDuke most of the jvm work occurred when it was called perl 6, so that's a better search term 13:07
lizmat happens to be working on the uni* functions now
13:09 linkable6 joined
smolck lizmat: any issues on adding NFG support/related to it for the JVM backend? quick search didn't yield anything in the rakudo repo 13:10
lizmat NFG is implemented in MoarVM afaik, and partly on the JavaScript backend, if I'm not mistaken 13:11
smolck MasterDuke: re SO: don't appear to be any questions/answers on subclassing Java classes and such, unfortunately. Although I guess I could just test it myself . . . 13:12
lizmat: is there any work being done on it for the JVM backend, out of curiosity? 13:15
lizmat I think usev6 has looked at doing it a few times... but it *is* a lot of work, and I seem to recall that the JVM is sorta fighting alternate unicode implementations / support 13:16

When I run `raku -e 'use Build; Build.build' in a directory with a Build.pm6 file present, why am I getting an error with this message: "Please note that a 'META6.json' file was found in '.', of which the 'provides' section was used to determine if a dependency is available or not. Perhaps you need to add 'Build' in the <provides> section of that file? Or need to specify a directory that does *not* have a 'META6.json' file?" 21:47
ugexe you aren't providing any -I. or -Ilib ? 21:49
Xliff Not the first time. Did the second time with the same result 21:50
ugexe well the results cant be the same unless you have a module named "Build" installed
Xliff Not "installed" as in the zef sense. 21:51
ugexe anyways even if you provide a path, does that path contain a META6.json? and if so does that META6.json contain a Build.pm6 file? I would assume no, and thus you can't use e.g. `-I.` to load a Build module
Xliff OK. So I'm trying to make a Build.pm6 file for zef, and I want to test it. What is the best way to do that? 21:52
ugexe if you run `zef build . --verbose` it should show you the command it uses 21:53
github.com/ugexe/zef/blob/dc85148b...akumod#L85 is the actual command
but basically you `require $path_to_Build_dot_rakumod; ::("Build").build(...)` 21:54
Xliff Getting a FAIL with no additional information.
ugexe well all it does is run the build file
if your build file doesn't provide any insight you wont get any
Xliff Ah! The trick was 'require'. 21:56
