melezhik wow! SmokeMachine have done a lot of reviews/comments for some Raku/Perl modules on mybf.io - thanks a lot Ferdnando, way to go! 02:16
one of the feature of mybfi - one can quickly announce a release and get feedbacks from users - mybf.io/project/Red/reviews even though people don't see it strait away, they can write back latter, somewhat alternative to irc/tell thing ))) 02:19

It seems Pod::To::Perl is actually still used

for building the examples documtation using "raku htmlify.pl"
Revert "Remove unused Pod::To::Perl module" This reverts commit 52de88cd638d80c4760ffa34959171b1c863d966.

tbrowder hi, i just used DateTime.clone for the first time and it wouldn't let me use ":$seconds", sounds like a bug to me 15:26
ugexe isnt it :second? 15:27
tbrowder m: my $t = DateTime.now; my $u = $t.clone(:seconds(0))
camelia ( no output )
tbrowder supposedly, looking at the code, the plural form for most parts are acceptable 15:28
ugexe quickly looking at the code i do not draw the same conclusion 15:29
tbrowder hm, got to go but back later
ugexe maybe thats what $valid-units does though
tbrowder yes, that's what i see 15:30
15:47 tejr left 15:48 tejr joined 15:51 Manifest0 left, evalable6 joined 15:53 linkable6 joined
tbrowder ok, back. the problem is it takes the seconds but doesn’t use them 15:58
15:59 tejr left, tejr joined
tbrowder m: my $t=DateTime.now; say $t.clone(:0second); say $t.clone(:0seconds); 16:00
camelia 2021-10-23T18:00:00+02:00
ugexe yeah it looks like the clone method doesnt take any named parameters 16:02
:year etc dont work either
nm i read the code wrong, although :year isnt working
oh jeez :year works fine, my example had a thinko 16:08
:years doesnt work in clone though, so maybe method clone needs to integrate that $valid-units 16:09
16:15 notna joined, monkey_ joined 16:16 notna left
tbrowder roger 16:20
second works fine, but not seconds
16:23 Manifest0 joined
tbrowder so roast needs a new test, too 16:32
16:33 atroxaper joined
ugexe maybe... it might be that its not in the spirit of .clone to also handle those type of variations on input parameters and instead only affect actual attributes 16:38
tbrowder well, i think that’s what the docs say: clone is used to modify attrs of a copy of an existing dt obj 17:02
ugexe yeah but $!seconds isnt an attribute of DateTime 17:10
its an alternative parameter name for a method yeah, but not an actual attribute 17:11
so in that respect its probably not a bug

tbrowder m: say DateTime.new(:2000year, :1month, :1day, :1hour, :2minutes, :3seconds) 17:37
camelia 2000-01-01T01:00:00Z
lizmat m: say DateTime.new(:2000year, :1month, :1day, :1hour, :2minute, :3second) 17:38
camelia 2000-01-01T01:02:03Z
lizmat hmmm
tbrowder hm, i thought i had used plurals before, must be losing my mind 17:39
lizmat it has the plurals for .later / .ealier 17:43
allowing the plurals for DateTime.new, would make that a lot slower :-( 17:44
atroxaper lizmat: Hello. Please, add my new post about RaCoCo to the weekly.
lizmat link? :-) 17:45
m: say DateTime.new(2021,10,23,19,15,42) # tbrowder
camelia 2021-10-23T19:15:42Z
lizmat tbrowder: you can just specify them as positionals as well

notable6 lizmat, Noted! (weekly)
tbrowder gotcha, i just need to stop thinking plurals guess, OR we could add plurals for all just for fun!
lizmat atroxaper: that's how you note it for the weekly 17:47
tbrowder: not if it would make DateTime.new 20% slower
atroxaper lizmat: I didn't dare to do it on my own :)
17:47 monkey_ left
lizmat atroxaper: please do so, it will make it easier for me to do the weekly 17:47
tbrowder oh, it would slow down the whole thing, not a good idea as you said 17:48
atroxaper lizmat: deal.
tbrowder but the positional approach is something i'll try, and i vaguely remember you mentioning that before... 17:49
ugexe my guess was it would just be replacing e.g. :$seconds parameters with :second(:$seconds) 17:50
or vice versa
not that i agree it should be done 17:51
tbrowder m: say DateTime.new(2000,1,1, 1, 1);
camelia Cannot resolve caller new(DateTime:U: Int:D, Int:D, Int:D, Int:D, Int:D); none of these signatures match:
(DateTime: $y, $mo, $d, $h, $mi, $s, :$timezone = 0, :&formatter, *%_ --> DateTime:D)
(DateTime: :$year!, :$month = 1, :$day = 1, :$h…
lizmat ugexe: well, maybe I should spectest that
tbrowder: yes, you must specify all 6 parameters that way :-) 17:52
tbrowder i see i need all the params
m: say DateTime.new(1000,1,1, 1,1,1) 17:53
camelia 1000-01-01T01:01:01Z
tbrowder m: my $t = DateTime.now; say $t.clone(:0hour, :0minute, :0second) 17:57
camelia 2021-10-23T00:00:00+02:00
tbrowder "raku to self: do NOT use plural attrs with DateTime!" 17:59
(or Date)
18:02 reportable6 left 18:05 reportable6 joined
tbrowder without beating a dead horse, why doesn't DateTime throw when using named plurals that aren't recognized? (that sounds like a recent PR fix that may be in the next release) 18:09
ugexe no methods do that 18:32
only subroutines
lizmat indeed, this is one of TimToady's decisions 18:33
I hope to be able to provide a trait after RakuAST has landed to: 18:34
18:34 linkable6 joined
lizmat a. disallow unrecognized nameds in a method call 18:34
and allow dispatch to work on that 18:35
18:48 atroxaper left
tbrowder ok, that will be very useful to me fer sure 18:57

Xliff What's the best way to re-export symbols like exceptions or subs? 19:00
lizmat create an EXPORT sub in the compunit that returns a Map with the name => what it is mapping 19:03
Xliff But doesn't that need to be OUTSIDE the compunit definition? 19:07
That means in the case of unit compunits it needs to be at the top of the file, which means a lot of predeclarations, yes?
Also, this EXPORT sub needs to make sure the default mechanism still works, so how do you reuse the existing "is default" mechanism? 19:08
lizmat sorry I wasn't clear
it needs to be at the compunit level
so if you indeed have a "unit module Foo" or "unit class Foo" it should be before it (can you actually do that)? 19:09
Xliff Yes! That's what I am asking without the parenthetical! 19:10
lizmat an extreme example: github.com/lizmat/P5built-ins/blob...ns.rakumod 19:11

hey ToddAndMargo, you have a message: gist.github.com/6324e746f164c4b2b8...10a1de95a6
[Coke] rba: thank you, that fixes the euler page issue, appreciate it 23:41
ToddAndMargo I am trying to slice up a web page. The following hangs on me `$NewRev ~~ s/ .*? ('Release Notes <strong>V') //;
` Is there a better way of doing putting special characters into a regex?
