guifa tonyo: no issues since I figured out the cause of the problem! 00:28
tellable6 2022-11-28T18:47:55Z #raku <tonyo> guifa any issues with uploading on that branch?

tonyo good news 01:41
need to figure out how git applies that gitignore, it seems like the glob is applied in each folder so `*.DS_Store` matches in subdirs as well but i think the way i have it in fez matches what git does 01:42
guifa git-scm.com/docs/gitignore it's fairly complicated. if you can't get something figured out this week, I can try to come up with something for you next week 02:08

The squashatons thing, simply deleted. Probably does not make a lot of sense any more.

I think I was working with the wrong version all the time...

ToddAndMargo Windows 11Pro 22H2.  Tearing my hair out here.  Can someone tell me what is wrong with this code?  It just exits.  No error code; no complaining.  vpaste.net/kzbdA 11:42

ToddAndMargo I think what I may be doing wrong is not defining LPDWORD and LPSTR correctly: 12:27
constant BYTE     := uint8;
constant LPDWORD  := uint64;        # long pointer to a DWORD
constant LPSTR    = CArray[BYTE];   # long pointer to a string
I am giving it data structures instead of pointers 12:31
Figured it out.  I forgot teh "rw" in 12:47
   LPSTR   $lpBuffer is rw,
   LPDWORD $nSize is rw
Nemokosch please publish as much of this kind of code as possible, without violating your business interests at least 12:54
because this is very niche stuff within Raku folks from what I know

SmokeMachine Hi lizmat. Sorry for keep asking you questions about rak, but I really like that tool and how would be a better person to ask about that than you? 14:27
lizmat: I'm trying to list all aws_instances on a group of terraform files. My last try was this one: `rak '/resource <.ws> \"aws_instance\" <.ws> \"<( .* )>\"/' --extensions=tf --/show-filename --file-separator-null --trim` 14:29
but it adds an empty line between each line, shows the line number and shows the whole line instead on only the <( )> part (but only highlights that part). Would that be possible? 14:31
Nemokosch by the way, there is a raku-rak IRC channel 😛 14:36
SmokeMachine :+1 14:37
I don't know it that's related to the version, but I've updated rak and now I found the option `--matches-only`that made it 1 step closer to what I want... 14:38
ok --/show-item-number (I was searching for something related to line...). Now only removing the empty lines is missing... 14:40
14:42 derpydoo left
Nemokosch btw pretty sure I managed to git rid of the empty lines, they are a feature. I don't know which option it was 14:43

[Coke] It is unclear to me who is "non core" for the rainbow thing. 16:25
16:26 Kaiepi joined
[Coke] I wonder if next year we might want a way to surface people who have already been nominated so that people can say "oh, yes, Elsie did do a lot and I should vote for her." 16:27
16:27 xinming joined
[Coke] I assume non-core means "doesn't commit to the big 3 repos and is not on the RSC"? 16:29
Geth ¦ doc: coke self-assigned Explanation on thread issues with hashes github.com/Raku/doc/issues/4143 16:35
El_Che [Coke]: there is core and hard-core 16:38
tonyo art core is modules that don't work but have beautiful interfaces 16:58
El_Che nice 17:01
17:01 m_athias left 17:02 m_athias joined
[Coke] coke is almost core 17:03
Nemokosch [Coke]: agreed, it's good for voting, and frankly, it would be also good to not re-nominate the same people over and over. Frankly, I wouldn't want to nominate somebody for an nth time, either. Administrative-ish stuff is too frustrating to do for no actual use... 17:08

[Coke] ah, that's not doing what I think it is. 17:11
Nemokosch what did you want it to do? 17:12
[Coke] take positions into account.
m: say +("coke".comb.kv (-) "koce".comb.kv) 17:13
camelia 0
[Coke] but it's probably just matching up 0, 1, 2, 3, c, o, k, e and the positions will ALWAYS match if the words are the same length
m: say +("coke".comb.pairs.map(*.join) (-) "coek".comb.pairs.map(*.join)) # there we go 17:14

[Coke] m: say +("coke".comb.pairs.map(*.join) (-) "core".comb.pairs.map(*.join)) # there we go
camelia 1
[Coke] Someone golf that. :) 17:15
Nemokosch what does this actually do?
[Coke] doing a simplistic hamming distance. 17:17
how many changes are there (substutions only) between those two words. (coke vs. croke is probably technically a distance of 1 (1 insertion) but this would report that as 4, probably. 17:18
m: say +("coke".comb.pairs.map(*.join) (-) "croke".comb.pairs.map(*.join)) # there we go

El_Che I think the rainbow butterfly is a trick to make people questioning themselves if they are core or not :P
[Coke] ^^ you can just sum up booleans.
El_Che: Thankfully I was never going to nominate myself so I didn't have to answer that question. :) 17:22
I did nominate someone, hopefully within the latest window
Nemokosch not sure it's a good idea to further obfuscate the code with boolean summing 17:23
[Coke] I disagree that that's the obfuscating part there. :) 17:27
Nemokosch Well I think it is but it's rather tautological. 17:32

[Coke] wonders if this is worth a module. 18:04
[Coke] notes you can also rewrite the reduce:
m: <coke core>>>.comb.reduce(&[Zne])).sum.say
camelia ===SORRY!=== Error while compiling <tmp>
Unexpected closing bracket
at <tmp>:1
------> <coke core>>>.comb.reduce(&[Zne])⏏).sum.say

tbrowder i just spent WAY too much time editing my raku advent article on that [expletives deleted] so-called editor on Wordpress. Santa, please send us a new (and suitable) Raku Advent blog site!! 19:18
19:23 sgrs left
tbrowder with tonyo's article on apache/cro websites in hand, surely someone is willing to self-host a decent, Rakupod/Markdown Raku Advent blogging site. i know it will take a bit of time, but, for a once-a-year event, it shouldn't take that much time compared to wasted hours on WP. and i'm willing to donate to the Raku Foundation to get it started. 19:25
couldn't Raku servers be used? 19:26
[Coke] I am not sure there *are* "raku servers" 19:30
Nemokosch could be that there are "raku servers" but then they are people xD 19:32

[Coke] I mean to say, I don't think it's like we have capacity sitting around unused, I think everything is bespoke. 19:41
I also don't know if we want to add to infrastructure when there are commercial options because devops/infra staff is a limited resource, even more than hosting $$. 19:42

tonyo i could host it. 22:40
but i have no software for blogging so there'd probably need to be some consensus for what to use
coleman static site generator? 22:41
tonyo if you use that then you could just make an org for the advent in github and use that 22:44
Nemokosch I mean yeah, tbh if people are so dissatisfied with Wordpress, what about simply using a Jekyll site on github? 22:56

lizmat [Coke] there are nominations, and the RSC is still mulling about the selection process / results :-) 23:05
El_Che lizmat: are we allowed to make "Stop the steal" jokes? :) 23:09
lizmat yes
El_Che are the bots allowed to vote, you know vox populi, vox dei? 23:10
lizmat no, the only people allowed to vote, are the RSC members :-)
and I think we will exclude RSC members from the roster :-) 23:11
maybe next time it will be different... it was a sorta last minute thing, really
El_Che good luck! 23:12
