xinming_ ^^ Is there a function name for this? I know we have sum 11:26
we have .sum already

guifa is there a way in parameter type declarations to type the container of a @-sigiled var? 13:49
e.g. sub foo (@bar is buf8) { … } ?
I know I can do where but feels clunky 13:52

tbrowder__ i would love it if some Windows expert would apply for a grant to beef up Raku github workflow testing on Windows. 14:30
and i would contribute to it. 14:31
*for Windows

ugexe I did a proof of concept to make long paths work on windows at the raku core summit. Alas, doing it correctly proved to require far more work than I anticipated 15:32
that was trying to do it entirely in rakudo though 15:37
doing it in MoarVM might be easier (contrary to what I originally thought). in all the places MoarVM does path operations it converts the string to some format, and on windows we could just add a new line under each of those instances that transforms the path as appropriate 15:38

tbrowder__ is that the main showstopper with Windows? 20:11
and a ? on fez: is it possible to allow the user to see his password as he enters it% 20:12
lizmat ::q 20:13
oops :-) 20:14
tbrowder__ or have an option to do so? or at least see a single dot for each char entered?
seniors have a tuff time with unix-style passwords where nothing appears to be happeing. 20:15
and a pox on all those othe apps that are so secure the owner can't see the 20:16
one he enters
rant complete, sigh 20:17

antononcube @tbrowder I have been working today on templates for generation full-blown rants. You might find them helpful. 20:53
@tbrowder I started doing that mostly because you seemed to like the 12 step list of quitting Python. 20:54
Here is an executed version of that template: github.com/antononcube/RakuForPred...e_woven.md 20:57

tbrowder__ i like it, but the ref to javascript to me seems to interrupt the stream 21:52
gfldex I *am* writing JavsScript today and I'm missing any form of comfort. 21:54
tbrowder__ .tell tonyo i tried to 'fez remove' a module i just released today and was told it didn't meet the 24 hr window!!!
tellable6 tbrowder__, I'll pass your message to tonyo
tbrowder__ sounds similar to python pain to me, but with less ws edges 21:55
antononcube: i'll bet you could write a good technical summary of why python ppl should prefer raku. it would make a nice addition to raku.org 21:58

antononcube I will think about it. 🙂 22:17

Voldenet there's few reasons why choose python over raku as well though 22:22
for example context managers
or __subclasshook__ 22:29

antononcube @Voldenet and @tbrowder I mostly writing Python trolling articles. So, using LLMs for that is just fine. 23:00
Now, making something more constructive and useful in that way -- i.e. with LLMs and templates -- requires a fair amount of iterations and vetting. 23:02

Voldenet the results are promising though, keep up the good work :> 23:07
23:07 guifa_ left
antononcube My conniving plan is to show "the promising results" to Brian Duggan, so, he would get inspired to change Raku Jupyter-Kernel to accommodate easier and quicker access to LLMs. 23:12
