tonyo there's a lot of constructive feedback in that performance thread 13:52
14:01 Sgeo joined
coleman what I like about the grep use case is it's a good test for performance improvements and regression 14:03
tonyo i mean constructive feedback outside of the tool itself, the comments about PR or marketing are pretty explicit in saying "i need more to give it a try" 14:08

coleman agreed that's constructive. especially by HN standards 14:27

ugexe I wonder how much time is spent in GC for App::Raku and if it would make sense to have an option to disable GC altogether (if that is even possible) 14:47

Guest5 hi, it seems that .minpairs used to return a Seq, it now returns a List (2023.08+). I think returning a List is better because it cannot lazily generate the values anyway. Documentation still says returns Seq. What could be done for this 17:48

[Coke] bravely tries to build rakudo latest on windows 18:19
You could open a ticket or a PR on github.com/raku/doc, that would be great.
if there's an appropriate role or something that the spec tests are checking for, we should say that instead of the specific, we'll check 18:20

librasteve ugexe: i doubt that GC is material - my intuition is that 80% of Rak are short running ... so GC will not start ... for the rest you are in the 5GB logfile territory that ripgrep serves ... and I suspect that Rak for large cases like this will need some GC to avoid filling memory... 23:16
ugexe the mmap enabled query of rg used 700ish MB of memory 23:25
that is why i was wondering
if it is significantly faster than it might not matter if it uses more memory 23:26
