lue In any case, the only useful place I've seen so far is substr, where you could supply a StrLen for length or a StrPos for endpoint. But that doesn't help the integer cases of substr (you can have Int length but not Int endpoint), and (I hope) :end and :length work better anyway :) 00:01

nwc10: thanks. Sleep is LTA, but OK (at least for me; $wife and $newborn are still in the hospital, so they don't wake me right now)
nwc10 it's "close" - is it worth saying that?
FROGGS_ I changed a paragraph to: While the other backends 08:08

FROGGS_ aha, okay 08:39
08:40 denis_boyun joined
nwc10 and, rougly, bzip2 isn't worht it any more 08:40
.gz and .xz seem to be the two with useful CPU/size trade offs
brrt why is bzip2 out of favor? 08:43
nwc10 doesn't get much better compression than gzip, but uses quite a bit more CPU
xz gets a lot better compression, for not massively more CPU than bzip2
and on modern hardware, CPU speedups outpace disk access speedups, IIRC 08:44
although SSDs might have skewed that since then
xiaomiao nwc10: xz/lzma is a bit better on decompression, but afair a bit worse on compression than bzip2 08:45
so for compress-once, uncompress-many it wins, but for compress-and-read it doesn't matter much 08:46
nwc10 thanks - I wasn't aware of that detail 08:48

moritz FROGGS_: your implementation of $*EXECUTABLE is much better than $*EXECUTABLE_NAME, but it's still dangerous 09:32
FROGGS_: it always points to the installed perl6-{m,j}, but usually you spectest *before* installing 09:33
FROGGS_ moritz: I'd love to check for the running process, but I don't know how
moritz FROGGS_: and the spectests happen to be one of the major users of $*EXECUTABLE_NAME, so probably $*EXECUTABLE soon

I mean next rakudo star 17:32
moritz Ven: yes, though it'll be still experimental support 17:33
Ven: but the patches (or at least most of them) that are needed for star's build system are already in a branch
17:33 ajr_ left
moritz FROGGS[mobile], jnthn: now that star is released, what about merging tristar into master? 17:33
FROGGS +1 17:34
Ven kinda wants to see the speedup improvement moar will bring
moritz Ven: you can build a rakudo-moar right now, without star 17:35
Ven Definitely, if you guys are saying it's cool 17:37
moritz it sure is
Ven tastes the water 17:38
FROGGS it is very very cool
jnthn moritz: +1
moritz: And yeah, r-m builds faster 17:39
dalek Heuristic branch merge: pushed 28 commits to star by moritz 17:41
moritz the merge conflicts were pretty trivial to resolve 17:42
arnsholt jnthn: Could you take a look at nqp/O-refactor? I'm not quite sure what's up with the compile error on Moar. Somehow the hash doesn't get flattened properly or somesuch? 17:43

FROGGS moritz++ 17:52
arnsholt: you maybe look at run() or shell() and what we needed to get ha hash without containers (if that is the problem you have, dunno) 17:53
in terms.pm or control.pm or where that is
17:54 xinming__ left 17:56 isBEKaml joined
arnsholt I'm using nqp::hash (the grammar is NQP anyways, so no containers), the old O() returned a containerless hash as well, so not sure if that's it 17:56

[Coke] (tristar merging) have to get the daily runs for that doing all three now. 18:00
though I get the feeling the release manager is not looking at the failing tests until day of.
18:00 kurahaupo left
jnthn arnsholt: What backend did it work on? 18:02
arnsholt I did my testing on JVM
jnthn Hm, I thought that had same semantics as Moar...
arnsholt Yeah
moritz [Coke]: depends on the release manager :-) 18:03

isBEKaml [Coke]: Are we really on tristar release this month? I saw only parrot from FROGGS++... 18:05
btyler isBEKaml: next month is the target, as I understand it
jnthn Well, "this month" now. It's April today :) 18:07
[Coke] are there any docs in the tristar merge that explain how to build for the various backends?
isBEKaml btyler: Ah, okay. 18:08
[Coke] I grepped around for jvm/moar in the top level and in the release guide, nothing stands out.
isBEKaml jnthn: Sure, I'm not the one picking dates for release. :-)
jnthn arnsholt: I don't see why you'd be hitting a problem. I wonder if it's a code-gen issue. 18:09
18:09 census left
[Coke] is the star process the same, just the build of the bundle that's different? 18:09
(and at that point, just like building for a regular build?) 18:10
arnsholt jnthn: Something codegen-y with hash flattening might fit, yeah 18:11
isBEKaml [Coke]: IIUC, the makefile for star build will have a single command to build all 3 backends.
[Coke]: So, the build process remains the same except perhaps an extra step for additional backends. Though, it's really not for me to say. :-) 18:12
jnthn [Coke]: It needs doc'ing, but it takes --backends=... and should be a lot like configuring Rakudo itself. 18:13
arnsholt Huh. It's broken on Parrot as well, actually
FROGGS isBEKaml: we missed to release a tristar for march by an inch :o) 18:14
isBEKaml FROGGS: Yeah, we don't want people to take this release less seriously now, do we? :P 18:15

dalek ar: aa98b5c | coke++ | tools/star/release-guide.pod:
Fix count, add more markup
[Coke] S17-concurrency/channel.t is still apparently hanging on the jvm. 18:20
(it's using no cpu time, but not exiting)
killing it manually so we can get a run today. 18:21
jnthn [Coke]: Weird...it stopped for me after last night's NQP patch
FROGGS[mobile] the msi build might become interesting
[Coke] jnthn: Perhaps it would have eventually, but the 0 cpu utilization was suspect. 18:23
dwarring [Coke]: I just submitted RT121556 18:24
looks like the same problem

dwarring gist.github.com/dwarring/9920038 18:26
[Coke] # HEAD detached at 08e997a 18:27
jnthn [Coke]: And cf3bdf1 came after that and fixed the bug.
[Coke]: So it's just an old NQP
[Coke] jnthn: this is the build script: github.com/coke/perl6-roast-data/b...udo.jvm.sh 18:28
jnthn Oh!!
For some reason I thought an NQP_REVISION bump had been commat after my patch
But it hasn't been. 18:29
[Coke] ah, that would 'splain it.
jnthn [Coke]: Doing revision bumps.
Yeah, sorry 'bout that. Musta just misremembered what I saw going by in the commit log...
[Coke] no worries.
I will try to manually kill the hangs for today's run, we'll get a fresh one tomorrow. 18:30

[Coke] wants to make a pun on spec using Kummerspeck, but feels it's a bit of a stretch. 19:21
dwarring jnthn, [Coke] my jvm hang problem has gone away after rakudo rebuild - thanks 19:24
jnthn yays 19:25
lizmat good *, #perl6! 19:29
looking at: until $server_ready_flag_fn.IO ~~ :e { sleep(0.1) }
I wonder whether it makes sense to create a dedicated Promise out of that 19:30
something like "Promise.e($path)"
jnthn lizmat: I think watching file system events is more naturally a supply... 19:31
lizmat ah, good point, a promise working on a supply ? 19:32
jnthn And then we make a way to turn any supply into a promise that completes when the supply gives its first result, for example.
lizmat but the supply would be giving *all* file system events, no? 19:34
19:34 rindolf joined
lizmat and the promise would be kept as soon as the "created file with this path" comes down the supply ? 19:34
feels more like a tap on a supply, turned promise 19:35
jnthn Right, when you ask for such a promise, it taps the supply, keeps the promise with the first value that arrives, and then untaps.
lizmat gotcha
jnthn That's pretty much what Rx's .FirstAsync() does, fwiw. :)
lizmat except we don't have a supply for file system events (yet) 19:36
jnthn No, but I kinda want it for my reactive talks that are coming up.
So I'll probably implement it in the nearish future.
lizmat ah... presentation driven development!
jnthn ;)
lizmat the season is starting again :-)
jnthn Yeah. 3 confs coming up for me! \o/ 19:37
Hm, I should make travel plans for 'em soon too I think.
lizmat wonders whether a reduced Perl 6 (like brian d foy's R) would just be called '6' 19:38
19:39 rurban1 joined
lizmat jnthn: and in the case of Promise.e, check first if the file already exists of course, and don't bother tapping if it is there already 19:39
hmmm... no, that would probably be a race condition
jnthn yeah :)
.e usually is... :)
lizmat first tap, then check if it exists, then untap if it already exists 19:40
I also just realized that the sleep sort test in t/spec/S17-concurrency/promise.t 19:41
basically also contains a race condition on the @a.push
it will most likely never happen, but it could 19:42
so I was thinking whether to create something like an "is shared" attribute 19:43
which would turn the array basically into an endpoint of a tap
19:43 rurban1 left
lizmat and all accesses to it as mores into the supply 19:44
all write accesses that is
jnthn Just all. 19:45
I'm not sure I like an "as shared", but it occurs to me that if we provide a monitor module and an actor module then:
vendethiel lizmat: isn't it called "nqp" ;)? 19:46
jnthn actor Wrapper { has $.wrapped handles *; }; sub actorify($wrapped) { Wrapper.new(:$wrapped) }
moritz lizmat: or just write the results to a Channel, not to an Array 19:47
lizmat moritz: perhaps 19:48
but that would probably require more typing and would thus be more work that just using @a.push
moritz not that much more work 19:49
lizmat so people would tend to do the intrinsically wrong thing in this context
it also would need a context change in the minds of people
