elcaro Hrm... Just got bit by the fact that `[R-] (...)` is not the same as `(...).reduce(* R- *)` 04:04
using it in a reduction metaop process the list in reverse. can't seem to find this documented
in fact, documentation on R seems hard to lookup in general. only found docs.raku.org/language/operators#R..._operators 04:05
applies to produce/triangular redunction too... 04:06
m: say ([\R~] <a b c>; <a b c>.produce(* R~ *));

Nemokosch the part you linked: 09:50
_Any infix operator may be called with its two arguments reversed by prefixing with R. **Associativity of operands is reversed as well.**_
for me, this automatically implies that the `[R-] (...)` behavior was valid 09:51
SmokeMachine patrickb: Please, when possible take a look at github.com/FCO/Red/issues/537 09:54
10:00 mahafyi left 10:02 lichtkind left
Nemokosch So yeah, the difference is that R- is right-associative while * R- * is left-associative by default, I guess 10:04
okay, this still doesn't explain: 10:06
mm: dd (1,4,5,10).reduce(&infix:<R->)
m: dd (1,4,5,10).reduce(&infix:<R->)
which is sadly still 8
_If &with is the code object of an operator, its inherent identity value and associativity is respected - in other words, (VAL1, VAL2, VAL3).reduce(&infix:<OP>) is the same as VAL1 OP VAL2 OP VAL3 even for operators which aren't left-associative:_ 10:08
this is not true
> (1,4,5,10).reduce(&infix:<R->)
> 1 R- 4 R- 5 R- 10
Is this a bug?
10:11 ugexe left 10:12 jcallen left, GreaseMonkey left, mtj left
elcaro I think the difference boils down to the .reduce or .produce methods process 2 args at a time, regardless of the associativity of the operator. The meta-reduction can consider the op before it processes the list, tho this means it can handle infinite seq's 10:12

10:13 greaser|q joined, jcallen joined
Nemokosch I mean, take a look at the quote 10:14
it does suggest that the two "queries" should produce (or reduce, hahaha) the same result
10:15 abraxxa left, andinus` joined, andinus left 10:16 dakkar left
elcaro I don't have time to dig into it now... but I assume this behaivior was chosen purposefully. Maybe it was chosen to mirror Haskell's `foldr` and `foldl` 10:16
Nemokosch _Whether reduce accumulates the elements starting from the left or from the right depends on the operator. In the functional programming world, this operation is generally called a fold. With a right-associative operator it is a right fold, otherwise (and usually) it is a left fold. In Raku, you can specify the associativity of an operator with the is assoc._ 10:17
10:18 dakkar joined
So yes, I don't know the exact definition either but trust me, this is worth reporting 10:18
The behavior explicitly contradicts the documentation so it's either wrong or the documentation needs extra explanation as to why the current description doesn't apply to this scenario 10:20
elcaro bisectable6: say [R-] 1,3,5,10 10:21
bisectable6 elcaro, Will bisect the whole range automagically because no endpoints were provided, hang tight
elcaro, ¦6c (60 commits): «1␤»
elcaro, Nothing to bisect!
10:22 jjido joined
elcaro it's always been that way... so probably just needs doc update 10:22
10:24 mtj joined 10:25 ugexe joined
Nemokosch I mean, [R-] _is right_ 10:29
see "Any infix operator may be called with its two arguments reversed by prefixing with R. Associativity of operands is reversed as well."
10:30 abraxxa joined
(1,3,5,10).reduce(infix:<R->) is wrong 10:30
One could say it's wrong for the sole reason that it isn't the same as [R-] but anyway, that's the one that contradicts the docs 10:31
10:32 jjido left
elcaro The associativy is swapped, which is why the meta-reduction does what it does... but .reduce lazily processes 2 args at a time, so it can't possibly to a right-fold 10:36
`(1,3,5,10).reduce(&infix:<R->)` essentially expands to `(((1 R- 3) R- 5) R- 10)`
Nemokosch Come on, I have quoted the docs several times by now 10:37
it explicitly states that the reduce method does take associativity into account, it expands without "parentheses" and it plays the role of foldl AND foldl, depending on the operator
this is a serious enough contradiction to ".reduce lazily processes 2 args at a time, so it can't possibly to a right-fold" 10:39
and indeed, why should/would List.reduce be lazy?
Supply.reduce okay but List.reduce doesn't have to and it has no particularly good reason to
elcaro yeah, WRT laziness, it's more applicable to .produce 10:42
but yes, I can see the docs, particularly the section you copied starting with _Whether reduce accumulates the elements starting from the left or from_
but it never shows examples of this working with .reduce method, only the meta-reduction 10:43

Voldenet Can I somehow call methods on hashes to get its keys? 10:51
m: role X { method ACCEPTS($_) { $_.x ~~ $.x } }; class A is X { has $.x; }; say A.new(:5x) ~~ {:5x} but X 10:52
camelia No such method 'x' for invocant of type 'Hash+{X}'
in method ACCEPTS at <tmp> line 1
in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1
Nemokosch there is the keys method, right?
or what do you mean?
elcaro: anyway, I'd say let's not forget this phenomenon because 1. I can still imagine it's a bug 2. if it's no bug, it would be good to get an explanation and add it to the docs 10:53
Voldenet to somehow do this `({:5x} but Magic).x` 10:54
elcaro I will first see if I can find any artifacts in the IRC logs, as well as any existing issues 10:57

Voldenet Yes, exactly! MasterDuke++ 11:03
Nemokosch what is "but" actually? 11:04
Voldenet operator creating value with mixin
elcaro `but` mixes a role in at runtime (as opposed to `class Foo does Bar` which mixes the `Bar` role in at compiletime) 11:11

As we know python 2 is no longer maintained www.python.org/doc/sunset-python-2/, its better to reflect examples compatible with python 3 unless we mean python 2 explicitly. This patch makes python examples compatible with python 3.

Nemokosch lizmat: do you by any chance know something about the strange behavior of List.reduce with infix:<R-> ? 20:11
that is, not taking right-associativity into account (unlike [R-])
lizmat nope
