TimToady it's returning [1,3],[2,4] rather than 1,3,2,4

rhr oh, it only does that in @@ context? 03:04
TimToady supposed to flatten in @ context, but doesn't yet
List of Capture is supposed to be sensitive to @ vs @@ 03:05
rhr what context do reduce ops provide?
TimToady and a number of routines are redefined to return List of Capture, such as map
and gather
ordinary list context, which is @ context 03:06

rhr does [,] flatten a multidim list? 03:07
03:08 toshinori_ joined, ofer joined, semifor joined
TimToady [,] is a no-op 03:08
rhr that makes sense :) I was looking at S03 and couldn't figure out why you'd use it 03:09
TimToady but yes, it probably turns 1,2;3,4 into 1,2,3,4
I'm actually still not entirely happy with the @@ sigil... 03:10
for @@: 1..3 X 'a'..'z' is pretty darn ugly
rhr yeah, that's a little strange 03:11
TimToady for clumps 1..3 X 'a'..'z' is slightly better
for some 'clumps' or other
rhr groups? lists? 03:12
TimToady I considered "each" at one point
for each gather ...
rhr is each entirely gone now? 03:13
TimToady it doesn't quite read right though
we still have the conjectural 1 < each(@foo) < 10
as an inside-out grep
but I think a readable @@ is likely more important
it would be doubly nice if it composed into a metaoperator 03:14
so you could write for 1..3 [X] 'a'..'z'
except [] is probably not going to work there.
can't use [] as a prefix operator 03:15
since it would be mistaken for an empty array
and oddly, most of the other keys on the keyboard already mean something... 03:16
rhr :)
03:17 prism joined
japhb Clearly, we need foot pedals 03:17
TimToady so for now I'm sticking with making it a funny kind of list context, and using @@: as the placeholder for that...
could make some word an alias for @@: 03:18
dduncan so I have finally put a QDRDBMS on CPAN ... but because the code isn't done yet, I made v0.0.0 a POD-only release
should be easier reading it htmlized than in pod
still, that's a step up from where I was before
does anyone know these days how often search.cpan.org is updated? 03:19
the newest thing on it now was added 2 hours ago 03:20
TimToady well, today's a Blue Moon, so I guess "once in a Blue Moon" is about how often. 03:21
japhb Cue oldies music ... 03:22
japhb is getting sufficiently annoyed at perl5 that my favorite part of 6-on-6 may be actually being able to understand the guts of the system, thus having a chance to know how to work around it when it is being stupid. 03:23
TimToady: if and when you get around to thinking about NCI ... one of those cognitive things I humbly ask you keep in mind when designing the syntax is not to make really cheap and really expensive operations look too similar. 03:26
TimToady not sure how to tell them apart, considering most of the overhead is external 03:27
Aankhen`` doesn't really understand @@ anyway.
dduncan as far as I know, @@ is just about multi-part keys
or indexes
japhb I've had quite a bit of frustration figuring out what macros/functions in the XS API just fiddle a bit here and there and which ones decide to make an entire new copy of a huge PV
dduncan same thing in a generic sense
TimToady yes, it's more about keys than values
Aankhen`` I see. 03:28
NCI == Native Call Interface?
TimToady multidimensional slices only have to go as deep as List of List, and that's what semicolon creates, and @@ unpacks
dduncan often
TimToady I keep trying to read it as Norweigan Cruise Lines... 03:29
japhb TimToady: I mean "expensive operations within the API itself". Like what I mentioned above -- it's not always clear when you are copying data and when you are slinging pointers. And MHO is that it comes from extremely huffmanized macro names that then don't give enough info about their actual operation.
dduncan that's NCL 03:30
japhb Especially stuff where deep differences in meaning are stored in capitalization ....
TimToady NCI would be glued by Perl 6 code, not by C code
japhb Aankhen``: yes, Native Call Interface
Aankhen`` Sorry for harping on this, but: for @@: 1..3 X 'a'..'z' # what does this do? 1..3 X 'a' .. 'z' creates three lists of a-z?
japhb: Thanks.
TimToady part of the reason for having an optional type system is the ability to specify the interface from within Perl 03:31
japhb TimToady: nodnod, I just meant, when designing the API, please consider making it somewhat self-documenting, not just golfer-friendly
TimToady ?eval 1..3 X 'a' .. 'c'
evalbot_r16590 ((1, "a"), (1, "b"), (1, "c"), (2, "a"), (2, "b"), (2, "c"), (3, "a"), (3, "b"), (3, "c"))
Aankhen`` Oh, hum.
Aankhen`` goes to read the Synopsis again. 03:32
Ah.
TimToady S03:1172 03:33
Aankhen`` Yeh, found it.
Hence the "Ah".
TimToady Ah
Aankhen`` -ha!
japhb Oh, and while I'm asking for things ... please can we have all NCI-related design in one S doc, as opposed to spread out over so many docs as it is now, so searching becomes a massive pain? ;-) 03:34
Aankhen`` Wait, you want it in one doc so searching becomes a massive pain? :-(
Aankhen`` ducks.
japhb s/so searching becomes/causing searching to be/
TimToady No, he wants the entire design of Perl 6 in one doc...
Aankhen`` That's easy, just use `cat`.
japhb TimToady: Thbbbpt. I know you know what I mean.
:-)
perlxs/perlembed/perlguts/... drive me insane 03:35
TimToady not really, the whole point of NCI is to do away with XS baggage
japhb steps back and thinks ....
Hmmm, perhaps the problem is a lack of imagination on my part. 03:36
Aankhen`` waits for the explosion.
japhb I literally can't imagine a situation in which a simple NCI design can possibly contain the complexity that exists in the real world. Mind you, I *can* see an 80% solution. 03:37
Or even a 99% solution.
But what I'm talking about is the other 1%. 03:38
Because of the waterbed problem
Simplifying how we treat NCI is going to be great,
Aankhen`` Hmm, waterbed problem?
japhb but essentially we're pushing down hard on a big lump in the waterbed.
And the other parts of the bed *will* go up.
Aankhen`` Ah. 03:39
TimToady only if it's full of water. XS has a lot of gas...
japhb OK, I'll buy that.
Aankhen`` Does that mean it's going to smell really bad?
japhb Except ....
Aankhen`` Or maybe cause people to pass out?
japhb When you compress a gas, you increase the pressure.
03:39 weinigLap_ joined
wolverian Aankhen``, yes, I think XS fits that description. 03:39
japhb So if you've got a weak point, you're going to have a blowout.
Regardless,
Aankhen`` wolverian: I figured as much. ;-) 03:40
japhb getting away from the pure metaphor:
Aankhen`` Never touched XS myself.
japhb There will be things that require deep fiddling. Like requesting zero-copy operations.
(just for instance)
03:40 thoughtp1lice joined
japhb Hopefully these fiddly bits will have an API of their own. 03:40
Let's please not make the fiddly bits as ugly as XS. 03:41
Aankhen`` Come to the daxs side, japhb.
japhb anyway, that was really all I was trying to say. Still don't know if I was clear .... 03:42
Aankhen`` We'll find out eventually!
It'll probably be too late then, but at least we'll know.
japhb LOL
Aankhen`` Have no fear. 03:43

mj41 Hi, are there any disadvantages of PHP's hashs as arrays. I know that internals are different, but from users point of view? Any url? 07:29
07:31 jisom_ joined
wolverian mj41, PHP doesn't have arrays. 07:33
imagine perl didn't have arrays.. and fear :) 07:35
dduncan, I see you uploaded QDRDBMS, yay, looks good. 07:36
dduncan yes 07:37
it took a full year too, since the last Rosetta release, which it rewrites
wolverian btw, I think s/rationales/rationale/ is more accepted
dduncan are you talking to me? 07:38
wolverian yeah, sorry.
that's in QDRDBMS.pm 07:39
dduncan I wasn't sure if you were refering to a #perl6 thread
I'll look into what you mentioned ...
so "providing rationales" should end in rationale? 07:40
sure, I can do that
wolverian ryes.
s/r//
dduncan okay, the next commit will have that fix 07:41
I also changed a similar statement in Language.pod 07:42
thank you
wolverian you're welcome
mj41 hmm, not real arrays at all? what about performance? 07:44
wolverian I don't know about the implementation, but the semantics are those of hashes 07:45
mj41 I found spyced.blogspot.com/2005/06/why-php-sucks.html ... O(1) vs. O(lg n) -> O(n) 07:50
lambdabot Title: Spyced: Why PHP sucks: Jonathan's Python Blog
wolverian mj41, right. there's really no way around that. 07:53
(except, I suppose, special casing integer-keyed hashes, but that is a heuristic, and heuristics break.)
dduncan generally speaking, I find that posting something on cpan leads me to re scanning the now htmlized documentation, and I notice small mistakes that I didn't before 07:58
what you pointed out I wouldn't have noticed, but I did find a runoff sentence further below
er, a sentence without an ending
wolverian dduncan, "define the balance" is awkward. I don't know what it means. (QDRDBMS.pm) 07:59
dduncan looking ...
found it 08:00
wolverian also, s/saavy/savvy/
a bit later: "... nor have objects in separate threads try to access..." would that be better with "trying"? I can't quote a rule why it's wrong, it just sounds wrong as it is :) 08:02
dduncan its basically saying that the database API is partly in the list of Perl routines provided by QDRDBMS.pm and AST.pm, and is partly in the data you define with the ASTs
using an analogy of another DBMS ...
say SQLite for example
part of its API is the C functions you invoke, and part of its API is expressed in the SQL strings you pass in 08:03
wolverian right. I get it now
dduncan in this case, my SQL replacement is the main api, and the perl classes provide the balance
okay
wolverian I think it is more opaque because that's the first time you speak about ::AST
dduncan looking up savvy
wolverian but I'm just nitpicking, really 08:04
dduncan savvy is now fixed 08:05
that's fine ... its good to know if something even initially confuses someone 08:06
of course, like with reporting bugs, it can also help if an alternative is suggested
for now I won't change it
pending such a suggestion
fyi, if you're looking through all the files, I suggest visiting in this order: README, QDRDBMS.pm, AST.pm, Language.pod, SeeAlso.pod, whatever 08:07

thoughtpolice one guy is actually working on getting it to run on the JVM
which would be pretty awesome imo
Aankhen`` LMAO, that would be funny.
dduncan but I usually count on having good spelling in my brain, or if I'm not sure about something, i google it at time of writing

Aankhen`` From Java to lolcode.

thoughtpolice I would probably try to write an implementation in perl 6 or haskell, but I probably would suck at writing a grammar or somesuch. :/ I could always have fun with Parsec, though. 08:27
Aankhen`` <thoughtpolice> just take the haskell route; make it a DSL with a LOLmonad like dons showed :) # wha? 08:34

lumi Err, it's actually borkened I think, but you get the gist 18:37
The 'a x' should be just 'a'
gaal lumi: needa Just
lumi Right, and tryWith should return (b, Just $ f x) 18:38
gaal uh, the /topic is FUDful. make install does need fixing, but that means someone should actually fix it.
you don't Just the result of the last application 18:39
lumi pugscode.org | Brave souls needed to fix 'make Install'! Non-brave souls should avoid it for now 18:40
lumi Better? 18:40
gaal lumi++
moritz lumi++ # indeed!
gaal what happened to everything else that used to be on the topic, anyway?
like, paste, moose, etc.
lumi gaal: Which last application? 18:41
gaal findHelper xs is not Justified 18:42
lumi gaal: That's recursion, I don't think it wants a Just? 18:43
gaal yes, what I'm saying
lumi I don't follow
moritz gaal: Juerd++ swept the topic away when he announced that feather was up again ;) 18:44
or so I think I recall
gaal lumi: ok, sorry, my mind has melted in the last heat wave and hasn't really reformed correctly
off for a film &

lumi I'm not sure if it works, would depend on the associativity of orElse 18:46
gaal (also prolly better find another name since orElse is an stm thing. re&) 18:49
renormalist does anyone know what's wrong with the make install or can describe it a bit?
Is there a chance to fix it or do we need special skills? Which ones? 18:50
rindolf Hi all.
