Guest79 what is the command line to compile a raku code to JVM ? 08:55
$ cat t.raku
my $a =1;
say $a;
$ raku -target=jar -o t.jar t.raku
Use of Nil in string context
  in any print at gen/moar/stage2/NQPCORE.setting line 1594
this one generates a zero length jar file 08:56
Nemokosch I don't think you can compile to JVM 09:06
el wdym 09:09
Nemokosch What I just said, lol 09:10
09:19 jpn left
el wdym by “cannot compile to jvm” raku can be compiled into jvm bytecode 09:25
Guest79 documentation explicitly says it can be done 09:28
09:38 ab5tract joined
Nemokosch I have asked it a while ago and found no sufficient evidence that it can 09:42
and checking out the so-called "JVM backend", that's mostly a bytecode interpreter running in JVM 09:43
it consumes QAST, like the other backends
so I'm curious now what the documentation says explicitly 09:44

add more ™ (#141)
Nemokosch remove more tm, add more tm... argh 09:49
on a different note: > gen/moar/stage2/NQPCORE.setting it says "moar" so I guess the compiler used was wrong (built with MoarVM, not JVM) 09:50
el so its not like clojure 09:53
also using java to interpret raku feels cursed lmao 09:54
Guest79 www.raku.org/compilers/ says: Rakudo runs on MoarVM and the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). 09:56
Nemokosch so from what I know, it's rather "it runs on something that runs on the Java Virtual Machine" 09:57
09:58 sena_kun joined
and hence saying that it runs in the JVM is a bit like saying for MoarVM that it runs natively, since MoarVM is written in C compiled to native code 09:58
10:00 NemokoschKiwi joined
NemokoschKiwi bartolin: are you around, good sir, by any chance? 10:01
Guest79 at least MoarVM could be written in Rust... this way Raku is just the good old Perl ... a newer language.. but... 10:02
does it run on WebAssembly ?
10:04 jpn left
Nemokosch When MoarVM was started, there was no Rust around, basically 10:06
and also, I suppose the argument that the language barrier should be kept low, still stands 10:07
If your possible contributors don't know Rust, you end up with a "weird flex" situation
Also, the important difference is that it could be, indeed, written in Rust, while Perl couldn't, because Perl is fixated on providing a C ABI basically 10:08

oh I found this old issue, by the way github.com/Raku/old-issue-tracker/issues/5756 10:17
> The feature you're asking for does not exist at the moment. > > You can get the precompiled compilation unit of a Perl 6 program as a .jar with C<--target=jar>, but that doesn't help you, because it a compilation unit that can be understood by a Rakudo executable, not a jar file that can be understood by any JVM.

guifa definitely needs to make a flow chart for this number formatting. so many different options with random little bits of code 12:55

ab5tract guifa: which number formatting is this? 13:16
guifa ab5tract: Intl::Format::Number 13:17
I've got it currently supporting percent/permille with max/min int/frac digits
Currently working on adding support for scientific (aka exponential) number, which also mostly gets me significant digits for free

ab5tract nice! 13:22
guifa But piecing it all together is … interesting haha 13:26
i could make one mega sub but I'd rather optimize and hard code values where they can be, remove code that won't be used, etc 13:31

ab5tract guifa: torment the implementor :) 14:55
guifa oh absolutely 14:56
14:57 jpn joined
guifa I think what I'll ultimately do is spin off the number formatter code into a separate module, and then have the Intl::Format::Number just reference it 14:58
I could enable a bit more optimization by allowing people to make formatting options static (e.g. set the maximum digits once, and not allow any changes) 14:59

Anton Antonov @guifa Just installed "Intl::Format::Number" without problems / complains on moar-2023.02 . 16:13
guifa yay! 16:14
I'm almost done with scientific numbers haha. I just have to write the digit loop the exponential (which honestly feels like overkill, I mean, how many people are going to have more than like 3 or 4 digits in it? But I'd rather not spit out an error because a number is too big) 16:15
Anton Antonov @guifa I haven't tried "Intl::Format::Number" itself yet. So, do not go into relaxation mode too much... 16:16
@guifa The package "Lingua::NumericWordForms" deals with cardinals (integers) only at this point. I have to make it deal with ordinals (e.g. "1st", "3rd", etc.) After that scientific numbers and percentages. 16:18
guifa Are you using CLDR to source those?
Word based formatting is my next thing -- only because it's also needed for handling some other non-numeric (but also non-digit) number formatting 16:19
(I just need to write the parser for RBNF "rule based number formats", which I had been waiting on RakuAST to do ha) 16:21
once I finish the Intl::Format::Number, though, i'm going to do Intl::Format::Currency and revisit Intl::Format::Unit, both of which will use the number formatting at their core. I'm scared to jump into date formatting LOL 16:23
Anton Antonov @guifa "Are you using CLDR to source those?" No, and I do not want to introduce a dependency to other packages in "Lingua::NumericWordForms". But I want "Lingua::NumericWordForms" to play nicely with "Intl::Format::Number". For example, "Intl::Format::Number" could used to "decorate" the results of "Lingua::NumericWordForms". 16:27

eseyman perl -E 'say chr(97)' 16:29
lizmat eseyman: why perl? 16:30
el is :: in the package name just a simple separator or is it actual namespace operator (like . in java packages)
lizmat it's a separator 16:31
el me when 16:32
Anton Antonov Probably this was discussed already -- I cannot do uploads with "fez:ver<40>" when using moar-2022.12 and moar-2023.02. Is "the cure" to edit ".gitignore" file(s) ? 16:39
rf Can you do union types in Raku, like my Foo | Bar $baz = f(); 16:42
el you can use where constraint for that 16:44
rf Yeah that's what I use right now, I thought maybe there was some subset magic or something I could do
lizmat or a subset:
m: subset StrInt where * ~~ Str | Int; my StrInt $baz = "foo"
camelia ( no output )
16:44 jpn joined
lizmat m: subset StrInt where * ~~ Str | Int; my StrInt $baz = 42 16:44
camelia ( no output )
lizmat m: subset StrInt where * ~~ Str | Int; my StrInt $baz = 42e0
camelia Type check failed in assignment to $baz; expected StrInt but got Num (42e0)
in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1
rf Makes sense cool 16:45
lizmat I guess it's just a matter of creating an anonymous subset to allow my Str | Int $a
but then we'd want to cache that somehow... 16:46
so I guess for now, being explicit is better :-)
Nemokosch It's the contrary - :: itself is a namespace 😛
lizmat ah?
guifa I guess they aren't true union types though, at least not inasmuch as how they work in C. (that would be cool, but I couldn't figure out how to play with the is-repr to maybe have two different types backed by, e.g., a list) 16:47
Anton Antonov Extraordinary claims require evidence!
Nemokosch For dist lookup, it's just an arbitrary sequence of characters I guess
lizmat indeed
Nemokosch :: stands for .WHO
And by itself, for MY.WHO iirc 16:48
rf @Anton about your comments with fez upload, there are some issues with .gitignore make sure it doesn't have a ~ character or it blows up
el given raku's history of funny nonconformist names why doesn't it refer to the double colon as paamayim nekudotayim lmao 16:49
Anton Antonov @rf So, I gathered -- thanks! 16:51
Nemokosch fez really needs more testing...
With some mocked backend at least 16:52
