lucs Given ⌊class Foo { method foo { "SNOO" }; method diehow { self.foo ~ $.foo } }⌉, how should I think about the difference between ⌊self.foo⌉ and ⌊$.foo⌉? 01:39

guifa_ self requires an instantiated value 02:33
basically, self is guaranteed to be a non-type object 02:34

perryprog For April Fools we should've said calling .WHAT on a string will now be an alias for .uc 02:38
guifa_ err actually it doesn't require an instantiated value. 02:47
lucs Yeah, I just built this, I don't quite (at all actually understand the difference: 02:48
Yeah, I just built this, I don't quite (at all actually) understand the difference: 02:49
guifa_ there's no difference in the calls themselves there 02:51
method foo { … } is really internally the equivalent of sub foo (::CLASS:_ \self:) { … } 02:52
when you call a method, the first argument is always set to the invocant 02:53
in your Foo, it's an instance of Foo. In your Niy, it's the type object 02:54
lucs Are self.foo and $.foo always interchangeable\
(in the same context)
Because hey, I'm lazy, I'll use $.foo all the time if I can ;) 02:55
guifa_ per the docs: `$.a will be equivalent to self.a.item or $(self.a)`
lucs I saw that, but they're talking about attributes I think, not necessarily methods. 02:56
guifa_ same logic applies 02:57
m: class Foo { method a { 1,2,3 }; method b { .say for self.a }; method c { .say for $.a } }; Foo.b; Foo.c;

pelevesque So $.a is like self.a.item or $(self.a), but not like self.a The $ creates a kind of or literally a container? I get it with attributes, but for methods, does $.myMethod have advantages over self.myMethod? 05:40

Nemokosch For what it's worth, $.a and self.a are always method calls 07:36
There is no public access to attributes 07:38
In the Rakudo sources, you can see that $.a is really just "gimme the result of the method call to a, in a container" 07:41
You could use @.a and you'd get the same result, with .list called on it 07:42
Or %.a and then .hash is applied 07:43
Even you do has $.foo, that sets up a (private) attribute $!foo and a (public) method foo that returns $!foo 07:45
S /Even/Every time
This is why you can do is rw stuff at a declaration like that: it is used for generating the method 😉 07:48

Xliff Why first but not second?

Nemokosch tokens don't backtrack 11:53

Raku eval 「'Hello World'」 in-quote => 「'Hello World'」 0 => 「Hello World」
Nemokosch I guess it doubled down on '' when it matched the first apostrophe 11:55
12:00 reportable6 left
Xliff Nemokosch++: Thanks! 12:00
12:01 reportable6 joined
Nemokosch Mind you, I'd also like to know what "doesn't backtrack" means in practice 12:01
buuut it definitely makes the difference here 😅 12:02
12:10 an3223_ left
you know, something is odd about this. I'm using similar "grammars" (composed regexes, at least) all the time, with token 12:23
m: my token inQuote { \' (.*?) \' }; say "'Hello World'" ~~ / <inQuote> / 12:28
Raku eval Nil
Nemokosch so this doesn't match
m: my token inQuote { \' <(.*?)> \' }; say "'Hello World'" ~~ / <inQuote> /
Raku eval 「'Hello World'」 inQuote => 「Hello World」
Nemokosch but this matches???
m: my token inQuote { \' .*? \' }; say "'Hello World'" ~~ / <inQuote> / 12:29
Raku eval 「'Hello World'」 inQuote => 「'Hello World'」
Nemokosch and this also does...
12:35 jpn joined 12:40 jpn left
Xliff Nemo: Matches, but looks like it doesn't capture. 12:42
No $0 12:43
Nemokosch well, you can still get the whole content from $/
but it would be interesting to know why the capture group suddenly ruins the matching 12:44
anyway, I wrote this down at least, whether it's a bug or a feature 12:47

japhb Copying over from #raku-dev, since I realized some of the Mac folk may not be in that channel: 17:15
If anyone here is using a Mac, I would super-appreciate some screenshots of Mac terminal(s) running `terminal-quick-test` from github.com/japhb/Terminal-Tests (`zef install Terminal::Tests`)
I'm trying to get a rough idea of how terminal Unicode handling is working cross-platform.
So far I have gnome-terminal, gnome-terminal + GNU Screen, xterm with various configurations, and Windows Terminal under Windows 10 (though that one's slightly out of date; I've added to the test pattern since then).
FWIW, Windows Terminal under Windows 10 without enabling UTF-8 support is ... an interesting mess. Actually pretty decent with UTF-8 turned on properly (why in the world would this be off by default?!?)

lucs Voldenet: Your last example, although somewhat contrived, appears legit, 17:48
but what I don't get is, given (::T ::U $x) for example, how can ::T and ::U ever be different, and if they can't, what's the point of the ::U?

In the spirit of Cunningham's law, I believe I will edit the docs to remove the ::U in that example. 18:47
