hope all are well. i have run into a raku execution problem with debian sudo: i can't get the rakudo-pkg paths working for it 01:49
i have one more thing to try first... 01:50
nope, didn't work. how can one get a raku script to work when executed with sudo? 01:56

p6steve ah - yes this is what I expected (now I grok that .VAR.WHERE is telling you the location of the contents) - so change both and get two new locations 08:33
and that this is a non guaranteed implementation detail of rakudo 08:34

Nemokosch by the way 08:38
what is the advantage of using any other backend but MoarVM?
lizmat some users require the JVM 08:40
El_Che inclusion with an specific ecosystem
lizmat re the JS backend... the idea that we could run in the browser... but I think that still need a lot of TLC
El_Che but I don't think the alternative runtimes are ready for primetime
Nemokosch I really don't know what it practically means to run code on the JVM, for example 08:48
like does this mean that you can make calls to Java libraries, like with Clojure for example?
lizmat I understand that that is possible to a degree, bartolin is the local JVM wizard, might know more :-) 08:49
El_Che your get libraries, more memory usage and face-to-face time with oracle lawyers :) 08:51
lizmat understand that the JVM backend was originally developed as a proof-of-concept of being able to run on multiple backends (other than Parrot) 08:52
Nemokosch Yes, this is somewhere along the lines the question 08:53
That it sounds nice in theory that you can target different backends but the way I understand, as it stands, there is little reason to use anything but MoarVM 08:54
lizmat I would concur, unless your *really* want the JVM 08:57
El_Che in you're in that ecosystem, it would be a great addition to stuff like kotlyn, groovy, jruby and the like 08:59
like when you need java stuff but prefer to program in a different lnaguage :) 09:00

the browser-ish backend also sounds interesting - maybe by that time there will be a mature WASM ๐Ÿ˜„

El_Che I manage a few big java applications, so I think please no. 09:08
Nemokosch although I personally don't get the _urge_ to supplement JS in the browser, other than a kind of fairness assured in the biggest application platform (the browser) 09:09

tbrowder El_Che: thnx, that's part of the problem. if one installs raku with the official debian raku package, raku is sym linked to one of the standard bin locations so it is not a problem. 10:36
can not the rakudo-pkg do the same? 10:37
10:38 p6steve left 10:41 p6steve joined
El_Che it would mean writing outside of /opt/rakudo-pkg what I would prefer not to do 10:44
create a link?
10:46 frost left
tbrowder can you provide in yr rakudo-pkg an optional link script which will "do the right thing" to get the same paths as the official debian package? 10:59
that would be very helpful for anyone creating such a raku pkg as mine 11:00
i can create it, but, imho, it would be much better coming from you 11:01
El_Che it can not be in the same path because it will conflict with the system supplied raku binary 11:02
the proper way should be adding it to sudoers eg in the secure_path key 11:03
or link to /usr/local/bin 11:04
but the sudo config will vary with distros
tbrowder hm, that sounds good. i'm involved in a debian users email discussion on what is the "correct" way to do that 11:05
and there are lots of varying answers
but still, 11:06
i like the /usr/loca/link idea better... 11:08
11:09 [Coke] joined 11:15 frost joined
tbrowder El_Che: would you consider having yr rakudo-pkg instructions showing the approriate sym links for yr pkg executables? 11:15
