TimToady this is incorrect, since $x and $y are supposed to be different variables
why VAR is not giving different WHICHes is perhaps the root of the problem; these are different objects 02:10

sergot hi o/
cognome And if I has wanted the opening construct, I would have explicetely grouped it.
TimToady = only works on atoms, and ~ does not create an atom 06:26
cognome I think one can go either way for both but that should be said
Well '{' ~ '}' ... creates something pretty tight, I could have construed that as an atom :) 06:28
06:28 chenryn joined
cognome People are usually interested on the whole thing, not the opening construct :) 06:29
TimToady it expresses the relationship of 3 atoms, and it's not really a pattern matcher but shorthand for an error check
the purpose of it is to panic if you don't end up at }
you can't simultaneously do that and also have it participate in backtracking 06:30
cognome Well, I find it so convenient that I wanted to do more than it does :)
TimToady well, but we can't define it to do contradictory things, alas :)

nine FROGGS: I just realized that v5 might become the basis of a P5->P6 translator... 08:10
FROGGS nine: when we can generate P6 code from AST, perhaps yes 08:11
nwc10 I'm not sure how useful a translator is, in the general case. Even if it gets to 100% of the syntax (which it can't) it won't cover semantics of the Perl 5 runtime that poke through 08:13
Python's 2to3 didn't exactly help set the world on fire.
so I don't think it's useful as a primary goal.
other people's opinions may vary, and please don't let me stop anyone having fun trying things. 08:14
nine nwc10: not as a primary goal, no. 2to3 failed because one would have to use it on the entire code base including all used libraries to make the transition.
But being able to migrate an application one piece at a time and being able to start with an automatic direct translation might help a lot. 08:15
nwc10 might. I'm still of the opinion that rewriting of working code from Perl 5 to Perl 6 is unlikely. 08:16
it's subsystem rewrites that we need to "capture"
which is why Inline::Perl5 is awesome
but, I repeat, these are my opinions. 08:17
nine Nobody's gonna rewrite working code just for the sake of it. Especially when with v5 we'll be able to execute P5 code faster. But if I have to do substantial changes to existing code anyway, I'll want to port it to Perl 6 first to be able to use the new features. That's when a translator might come in handy. 08:19
Even if it doesn't produce 100 % working code.

jnthn nwc10: Stringification? Hmm. Try disabling optimize_smart_coerce. 13:48
(You'll have to hack the code)
nwc10 I assumed that I was hacking the code.
jnthn (But should be just commenitn gout the call to it in optimize.c)

jnthn .tell Mouq there are two operations you can do regarding the current routine's MVMCallCapture: usecapture and savecapture. The first populates a per-thread singleton and so is not reentrant. The latter saves a copy.
yoleaux jnthn: I'll pass your message to Mouq.
13:51 yenshine is now known as haroldwu
jnthn .tell Mouq both are worth avodiing on hot paths; savecapture has to allocate a GC-able, so it's the more expensive of the two. 13:51
yoleaux jnthn: I'll pass your message to Mouq.
jnthn raiph: Thanks for the pointers. :)

timotimo that sounds like a pretty terrible fate 14:05
nwc10 jnthn: commenting that out changes the SEGV from a NULL pointer to a garbage pointer
jnthn: so it's part of the problem.
I can dig further at some point
timotimo that is optimize_smart_coerce? 14:06
nwc10 timotimo: yes. commenting that out changes the error
timotimo it may need to check for VMNull on top of a null pointer in the facts->type slot
i had to put that into optimize_can_op to make it robust enough to pass almost all spec tests 14:07
jnthn Not sure why thatd make us a PPC-specific issue though. 14:09
timotimo oh 14:10
i forgot about that part
nwc10 Big Endian 14:11
timotimo maybe it's a problem with the way i'm assigning operands?
they are unions; i'm just assigning them straight with =
i think that generates the proper code, but i can't know for sure ...
hm. i'm assigning to a .lit_i16; perhaps i'm not nulling out the value beforehand? 14:13
Timbus m: class A {}; my $test = (my $x = A.new(:a), A.new(:b), my $y = A.new(:c), A.new(:d)); say $test.perl
camelia rakudo-moar dd4baa: OUTPUT«$(A.new(), A.new(), $(A.new(), A.new()))␤»
timotimo nah, that comes from MVM_spesh_alloc, which nulls out everything properly
Timbus whys that parcelify the last two.. 14:14
timotimo it also parcelifys "all" of it 14:15
not sure if that's because of the my $x in there
jnthn I guess 'cus you end up with list assignment precedence there
(for the second assignment)
timotimo m: class A {}; my $test = (A.new(:a), A.new(:b), my $y = A.new(:c), A.new(:d)); say $test.perl 14:16
camelia rakudo-moar dd4baa: OUTPUT«$(A.new(), A.new(), $(A.new(), A.new()))␤»
timotimo ah, ok, the $ in front probably comes from assigning to $test
m: class A {}; my $test = (A.new(:a), my $x = A.new(:b), my $y = A.new(:c), A.new(:d)); say $test.perl
camelia rakudo-moar dd4baa: OUTPUT«$(A.new(), $(A.new(), $(A.new(), A.new())))␤»
timotimo m: class A {}; my $test = (A.new(:a), my $x = A.new(:b), my $y = A.new(:c), A.new(:d)); say $test.perl; say $x.perl
camelia rakudo-moar dd4baa: OUTPUT«$(A.new(), $(A.new(), $(A.new(), A.new())))␤$(A.new(), $(A.new(), A.new()))␤»
timotimo does this make it clearer?
(see also: why you have to write { my ($a, $b) } rather than { my $a, $b }) 14:17
Timbus yeah i guess. makes gtk::simple a little less.. cool
timotimo have i been doing that wrong in the example code?
Timbus no, it will work as long as you avoid making parcels
timotimo ah, you mean inside an argument list it'll work fine? 14:18
m: say(my $a = "hello", my $b = "world"); say $a.perl; say $b.perl; 14:19
camelia rakudo-moar dd4baa: OUTPUT«helloworld␤"hello"␤"world"␤»
timotimo apparently. phew :)
Timbus as long as you assign everything to a var, or only the first thing.. otherwise youll need to break out the ()'s 14:20
dalek p: 12ac42b | jonathan++ | src/QRegex/Cursor.nqp:
Avoid a bunch of str boxing in !cursor_pass.

When we have a conditional in non-void context, it needs to produce a single kind of result; since a method call cannot be known to unbox to a native string, then this caused us to perform a boxing operation. This gets rid of a boxing operation on every !cursor_pass.
timotimo neat!

Save an integer boxing in every !reduce.

Similar trick to the previous commit; again, saves an allocation on every Cursor that passes.

moritz it's a poor testament for my math skills that I don'T get a simple percent calculation right on the first attempt 14:33

they have ruined real understanding of the underlying numbers.
moritz :-)

moritz I know understand why many of my friends were so bad at math
they made the same stupid mistakes that I do
tadzik weechat says there was something 14:38
moritz but I think "93%? that can't be right", and look further
whereas they often say "yay, a result! We can play soccer now!"
well, put that in past sense
