gfldex aye :) 19:37
That's why I was asking. I do like reading Rakudos source. But not all of it at once. :-> 19:38
lizmat it could be well worth implementing a new implementation for 6.e, to allow for easy comparison 19:39
gfldex m: my @a = 1,2,3,4; @a.splice(1|2,1); say @a; 19:40
camelia [1 3]
gfldex That is much nicer then:
m: my @a = 1,2,3,4; @a.[1,2]:delete; say @a;
camelia [1 (Any) (Any) 4]
gfldex m: my @a = 1,2,3,4; @a.[1,2]:delete; say @a.join(‘♥’); 19:41
camelia Use of uninitialized value of type Any in string context.
Methods .^name, .raku, .gist, or .say can be used to stringify it to something meaningful.
in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1
gfldex I wish SemiLists would be a real type, not a grammar level construct.
lizmat if they could be a real type, they could be developed in module space :-) 19:42
gfldex And they could be used in subs. They are really useful and it's a shame they only work in subscripts. 19:43
lizmat my mind is more in rak territory atm, but if you could describe in more detail in a gist, that would be great :-) 19:49
perhaps even a blog post ?
gfldex The :sdelete/:but/splice(Junction)-thing is first on the blog-list. 19:50

Kaipei an `over-iterator`-backed [List|Array].STORE is looking very promising, just it puts a lot of stress on Iterator, exposing bugs elsewhere at the same time 14:03
Kaiepi for reassignments, it needs both special iterators and buffers to back those with to take care of segmenting of eager portions of an iteration 14:06
otherwise we get stuck with either no ($a, $b) = ($b, $a) or no laziness 14:07

begh, doing [List|Array].new in terms of over-iterator instead of STORE makes me uncomfortable since it already depends on the public STORE 06:43

japhb timo: That was one heck of an article. The associated tweets of what ended up spammed across his home directory were interesting too .... 16:49

Geth rakudo/lizmat-exception-warn: c093f70678 | (Elizabeth Mattijsen)++ | src/core.c/Exception.pm6
Add a .warn method to exceptions

This will allow one to turn an exception into a warning:
   $ raku -e 'CATCH { .warn }; say "before"; die "foo"; say "after"'
   in block <unit> at -e line 1
