Implement IO::Path.resolve on r-m/POSIX

ONLY expected correct on POSIX filesystems, but committing now because
  "implemented on r-m/POSIX" is better than purely NYI. Other backends
need only support nqp::readlink to get the POSIX support, but someone else will need to do the non-POSIX filesystem work.

PerlJam aye. But I'm also wondering why it didn't complain about an unexpected named parameter 03:42
Mouq Methods don't
PerlJam ah.
oh, that's right. I forgot
Mouq Should I bug that too :9 03:43
PerlJam I'm not sure it is a bug. But it could surely surprise people. 03:44
ShimmerFairy forgot if there was a reasonable explanation for an implicit *% parameter on methods, which she still disagrees with 03:45
TimToady is the argument 03:47
Mouq PerlJam: Considering that method is neither designed nor tested, except a bit on MixHashes, I'd say it'd be good to at least get in the system 03:48
TimToady jnthn++ has said that we might be able to find a bit in the captures to tell whether a given argument has ever been bound, and warn on unbounds at the end
PerlJam That would help 03:49
ShimmerFairy The reason why I disagree with it is that I've yet to see a case where implicit *%_ was a helpful thing to have, and plenty of times where you really wanted to pass a Pair instead of a named argument.
TimToady m: ( tea => 42 ).Bag.perl.say
camelia rakudo-moar 61c59d: OUTPUT«("tea"=>42).Bag␤»
TimToady how is that method needed? 03:50

camelia rakudo-moar 61c59d: OUTPUT«("tea"=>42).Bag␤»
Mouq Hmm
PerlJam huh
TimToady coercion to Bag already handles pairs
PerlJam I just saw it in the email thread.
TimToady and doesn't have the named arg problem
Mouq m: say"blood" => 1.1, "love" => 1.3, "rhetoric" => 2.2); say ("blood" => 1.1, "love" => 1.3, "rhetoric" => 2.2).MixHash

Mouq (That's the way it's used in the tests we have involving new-from-pairs) 03:51
03:51 cognominal left
ShimmerFairy I wonder if %_.unbounded-pairs would be a feasible thing, either for standard Perl 6 or some sort of module... 03:52
TimToady that's why coercers are different from composers
Mouq So, new-from-pairs is really in want of deprecation?
03:53 colomon joined
Mouq ShimmerFairy: Isn't that just *%_ ? :P 03:53
ShimmerFairy well, it would have to account for arguments that get bounded later on. 03:54
TimToady unfortunately, polymorphism kinda demands that you be able to talk to each layer in the hierarchy in its own terms, and you have to do that through a single method call that can go to multiple methods 03:55
but we can certainly find some way of detecting when you misspelled a named arg

DrForr_ It's a rare edge case I imagine, but it should still throw a compile-time error rather than what it did. 11:00

FROGGS_ you are calculating your hight divided by the year of birth in percent? 11:09
jnthn haha :P 11:14
That's off by one on my birth year though :P
DrForr_ Is that the bug? :) 11:15
jnthn No, the calc was time after / time before of a benchmark (the after being when I implemented a few things missing in the JIT so it could JIT-compile a benchmark :)) 11:16
Which accounts entirely for some of the native-ref performance slowdowns.
And partially for a couple of them.

FROGGS_ ewww 11:18
[ptc] how does one extract the Pod structure of a file containing code and Pod? I've found that EVAL("filename") on a pure-Pod file returns this structure, but a file containing both runs the code only 11:19
there's probably something simple I'm missing, but grepping the specs, docs, rakduo hasn't turned up much 11:20

[Tux] FROGGS_, Slang::Tuxic fails on nameless sub with arg-spec - 12:02
FROGGS_ [Tux]: that's kinda expected
[Tux] :(
FROGGS_ since 'sub' can be a subroutine name, unlike in other lanugages 12:03
[Tux] hmmm
12:04 kjs_ joined
jnthn Try spelling it out as "anon sub" maybe 12:05
Alternatively, if you don't need to use "return" in there, go with a pointy block 12:06
12:08 kjs_ left, mr-foobar left, isBEKaml joined
[Tux] anon sub works. I'll go with that for now 12:09
dalek kudo/native-ref: ed74d05 | jnthn++ | src/Perl6/Optimizer.nqp:
Annotate return type on node post-inline.

Allows full inlining on chains like '$x ~ $y ~ $z', where the types of
  $x, $y, and $z are all known.

perl6_newbee hi all 12:28
what happened to MIME::Base64?
I want to install LWP::Simple but got error: MIME::Base64 is not present in the module ecosystem
temporarly vanished?

perl6_newbee also gone by purpose? 12:29
dalek kudo/native-ref: 1145f2a | jnthn++ | src/Perl6/Optimizer.nqp:
Optimize away ref taking when args are known ro.

This only works for subs, and then only those we can compile-time analyze. Still, that covers quite a lot of ground for code using native types.
kudo/native-ref: 45f77e5 | jnthn++ | src/core/
Add prefix:<~> candidates for native int/num.

We can handle these very cheaply, and have them inlinable.
jnthn perl6_newbee: No idea, it's still listed on 12:30
perl6_newbee yeah, listed it is.
I will update rakudobrew and panda and try again 12:31

moritz also includes it 12:34

perl6_newbee I had to update panda, now it is installing. However, I had to git ignore the panda/ext directory, before it did the pull request 12:40
dalek Heuristic branch merge: pushed 44 commits to nqp by jnthn 12:43
jnthn That was the merge of native-ref in NQP

dalek p: a01002f | jnthn++ | tools/build/MOAR_REVISION:
Bump MoarVM for JIT of some native ref ops.
[ptc] I'm trying to extract pod from source files containing both code and pod, however have hit a bit of a wall
I've worked out that one can slurp in the file and EVAL that (with $=pod on the end) and that creates a pod structure
however, that's only if there is *only* pod in the file
moritz right, otherwise it runs the code 12:47
[ptc] how does one extract the pod structure without running the code in the file?
moritz [ptc]: maybe it requires a rakudo patch
[ptc] and the EVAL trick I found inside htmlify, hence why I thought you'd know :-)
moritz [ptc]: at least off-hand, I can't think of anything clever
[ptc] oh
how does --doc work then?
moritz from inside rakudo :-) 12:48
[ptc] ah
moritz but that's a good lead
check what it does
[ptc] already have, and got a bit lost...
moritz here's a really, really hacky idea
write to Pod::To::Perl module
that simply returns $pod.perl
then run perl6-m --doc=Perl thefile 12:49
12:49 rurban left
moritz capture the output, eval it 12:49
did I mention it was really, really hacky? :-)
[ptc] you're right, that *is* hacky! :-D

12:50 Hor|zon joined
[ptc] how do I write to the Pod::To::Perl module? 12:50
moritz class Pod::To::Perl { method render($pod) { $pod.perl } } 12:51
[ptc] ok
[Tux] wonders if he did not understand defaults correct ... 12:52
method foo (Str $needed, Int $optional = 0) { ... }
$optional being default, right? And set to 0 if not passed 12:53
jnthn [Tux]: Yes
moritz yes
[Tux] but it *also* renders it to be readonly
jnthn Sure
[Tux] if '$optional--' is used inside the sub, Cannot assign to an immutable value
moritz all parameters are
jnthn Just making something have a default doesn't magic up a container. 12:54
Add "is copy" for that
moritz unless marked 'is rw' or 'is copy'
[Tux] alters assumptions in his mind (that might take a bit)
12:55 Hor|zon left
perl6_newbee FYI: installing LWP::Simple failed, because get-unsized.t tries to get, and that is down. Had to install with --notests 12:55
12:56 vendethiel joined, rurban joined
[ptc] moritz: it works! 12:56
moritz [ptc]: that's a bit scary
[ptc] it's also very cool, and allows me to get a bit further :-) 12:57
thanks heaps!
moritz you're welcome 13:01
jnthn: fwiw I got no new spectest failures due to the nqp merge (with a rakudo that uses the new nqp, of course) 13:06
FROGGS_ moritz: there seems to be a problem with NULLs in DBIish with the Pg driver 13:07
moritz FROGGS_: care to elaborate (or even better, open an issue?) 13:08
FROGGS_ moritz: when I select row, I get a NULL back as an empty string
moritz :(
FROGGS_ when I then select rows with a where clause and that empty string, I of course dont get back the said rows 13:09
jnthn moritz: Yay. And rakudo native-ref merge coming up soon too :)
FROGGS_ moritz: so I think we want to use the Str type object for NULLs

[Tux] if @aoa is a list of @aof's, like [[1,2,3],[4,5,6],[6,7,8]], how do I do «for @aoa -> @aof { for @aof -> $f { ... }}»? 13:17
jnthn [Tux]: As in, without needing the outer loop? 13:18
[Tux] no, as in how will @aof be a list
as in perl5's @$ref
jnthn m: sub foo(@a) { say elems @a }; foo(my @ = 1, 2, 3); foo([1,2,3]); 13:20
camelia rakudo-moar dcda6c: OUTPUT«3␤3␤»
jnthn The signature binding itself removes the outer Scalar
And -> @aof { ... } is just a lambda, so the @aof is a signature, so it's normal sig binding semantics there 13:21

[Tux] my sub has a (*@args) signature. If @args.elems == 1 and @args[0].^name ~~ /Array/ I want to expand @args[0] instead of using @args 13:21
arnsholt, for native int ? 13:22
[Tux] compiles again
jnthn oh... 13:23
