thowe Well, yeah, that's what I was thinking. Will the version denoted be something newer versions will/should be able to understand and execute, or will is the thinking that there will be warnings? 00:17
00:19 swaggboi joined
guifa yes, the idea is that upon encountering use v.6.c, the interpretation will switch to 6.c mechanics 00:28
I know there was some issue a while back with changes to one where if you created the "same" core class under 6.c and 6.e guarded code, but I forget the exact details and I think vrurg mostly solved it all 00:30

vrurg The biggest userland problem with 6.e is about roles which are incompatible with 6.c/d classes. Basically it means 'use v6.e; my $v = 42 but role { ... }' is an error now. This restriction can be lifted as the incompatibility is in handling of submethods only, but I would need to get back to it someday later. 01:58
guifa vrurg: ah okay. i knew it was something there but didn't want to misidentify the issue

What's the best way to rotate an array? So if I have (0...5) and I rotate it 2 steps, I get (2, 3, 4, 5, 0, 1)

dakkar TIL: List instances are not value objects 10:48
so trying to use lists as keys for a map / hash won't work
lizmat yeah, sadly so
raku.land/zef:lizmat/Tuple 10:49
dakkar (in addition to the slightly surprising bit where `%hash{@thing}` is interpreted as something like `@thing.map: $hash{$_}`) 10:50
lizmat that's just a slice ?
coming from Perl it may be a WAT :-) but that's just Stockholm Syndrome :-)
dakkar yes, I (now) know
lizmat the general rule in Raku is that anything between { } is code 10:51
dakkar if I want to avoid the slice, I have to pass the list via a scalar container (which still doesn't do what I need because lists aren't values) 10:52
lizmat indeed
@thing.item # more verbose
dakkar I keep getting surprised by sensible-in-retrospect choices ☺

Is there any way to get more output from zef here? Like the actual test output

sena_kun jdv, like this: github.com/rakudo/rakudo/pull/4529...0267e1dccd 14:54
here is the PR: github.com/rakudo/rakudo/pull/4529
when I did it, a nice heuristic is to look at the previous release and monkey see, monkey do it, so the chance of forgetting something is less. 14:55
jdv that's what i've been doing. takes forever but whatever.
there were only 8 ignored commits for you?
14:56 holyghost left 14:58 Sgeo joined
sena_kun jdv, it varies from release to release. 14:59
more for the next one: github.com/rakudo/rakudo/pull/4585...3bc8ec13cd
jdv i forget - what it the purpose there? the list is already in the changelog. 15:02
sena_kun jdv, AFAIK it is for releasable6 bot to know what commits from the past should not be prompted as "need to log those". It gives you list of commits that are not logged and on release you either have them directly in the changelog or in this form in a commit message. 15:07
see github.com/Raku/whateverable/blob/...p6#L42-L53 for the implementation
El_Che if there are no candidates to take over rakudo start, I would suggest making the project less visible (rakudo site) or archived (issues on github). 2c etc 15:09
lizmat El_Che: PRs welcome: github.com/Raku/raku.org 15:10
El_Che lizmat: no, this is not a technical discussion, but more of a political one, e.g. rsc 15:11
lizmat A draft PR is a good source of discussion :-)
MasterDuke should we consider bundling zef in rakudo releases? 15:12
jdv sena_kun: anyway - this is this release's list - gist.github.com/jdv/68a3ae15138eb7...d0053723af
lizmat MasterDuke: that is definitely an option, at least for me :-) 15:13
El_Che MasterDuke: I include it in my packages bacause without it is "no batteries included and we won´t tell which ones you need" :)
MasterDuke yep, El_Che++
El_Che it's less straight forward thant it sounds, though, raku going for the home install 15:14
lizmat TIL El_Che's distributions have zef :-)
sena_kun jdv, looks alright to me. 15:17
jdv i mean 93 is a lot more:) 15:18
i'm honestly not sure why the bot picked up a bunch of those but i didn't look why yet 15:20
sena_kun jdv, I think that's because we skipped 2021.11, so there was more time for people to do changes. 15:21
jdv seems buggy as a bunch of the commits don't even exist in my repo or they aren't in master's ancestry
maybe i'll peek later
but, yeah the sheer volume is likely partly cause that
MasterDuke there was a force push at one point 15:22
maybe the bot needs a refreshed rakudo clone to work from
lizmat yeah, there was a force push :-( 15:23
MasterDuke or something like `git reset --hard`
jdv i imagined it was some form of git shenanigan 15:26
lizmat the shenanigan was all of my making :-( 15:28
jdv it made the changelog figuring a challenge:) 15:38
lizmat sorry, should have remembered and mentioned it :-( 15:39
ugexe nine: you can run --/prove. the prove plugin itself just needs someone to wire zefs --verbose flag up to it
jdv lizmat: oh there was no missing it, thanks 15:41
ugexe nine: oh wait, thats using the TAP::Harness plugin. so `--/prove --/tap-harness` 15:43
the TAP::Harness plugin could use better integration

tellable6 2021-12-22T17:43:55Z #raku <[Coke]> mcmillhj - it's the parens around ($should-continue, @buffer) - remove the parens and it works as you expect.
2021-12-22T18:14:25Z #raku <SmokeMachine> mcmillhj it seems if you replace the List `()` with a signature `:()` and the `=` with a `:=` you get what you want: glot.io/snippets/g5eg08jvxz

tbrowder hm, did i originally contribute the code? shouldn’t TWEAK be a submethod? 22:58
ah, i think the rhs needs an ! vice . 23:01
[Coke] if it should or not, that was not quite the right solution. I figured this was the easiest way to push it back. :) 23:04
tbrowder if it were my example i think i would have used a prefix ++ 23:05
i can probably fix it tomorrow. i’m surprised docs are being regenerated so soon 23:06

tbrowder ok, i tweaked the TWEAK again ;-D 23:12
twigid, twigil, “whatever” my granddaughter would say 23:14
well, shoot, the postfix ++ operator looks to be the intended one, but the prefix should work. i’ll change it back if the twigil change works 23:19
[Coke] "if it works" - you ran the test, right? 23:24
you can use TEST_FILES env var or pass in file names as a command line arg to an individual test.
It fails.
I'll let you revert or fix it; but you can run the test without me. "make xtest" does every test every file. if you have a local change, you can do 'TEST_FILES=doc/Language/classtut.pod6 make xtest' e.g. 23:25
