pmurias and time passing away is not something i'm very happy about 03:36

pmurias you believe you are immortal? 03:38

i would call it recognize 03:39

I implemented and tested a class called FD. The code is
FD is implemented with `has-a' relationship, so to get real file descriptor,
I must call FD.descriptor() method.
Can I rewrite the code with `is-a' relationship? 05:32
I mean Can I say `class FD is Int ...?'.

rindolf Hi moritz_ 11:09
moritz_: I packaged rakudo-2010.12 for Mandriva Cooker.
wagnerf hi everyone, i'm trying to have a custom constructor for a class with some arguments
moritz_ rindolf: great 11:10
wagnerf but perl complains about "not enough positional parameters"
moritz_ wagnerf: please show some code
wagnerf scsys.co.uk:8002/77322
i'm a bit new to perl6 so maybe i'm doing something wrong

moritz_ method new($capacity) { self.bless(*, :$capacity, whites => 0, blacks => 0) ; } 11:11
wagnerf: see perlgeek.de/blog-en/perl-6/object-c...ation.html 11:12
wagnerf ok, I effectively saw something like that
is there no way to achieve it with BUILD ? 11:13
in any case, thanks for the hint 11:14
moritz_ no. BUILD Is called (indirectly) by new, and new's signature is causing that error
wagnerf ok 11:15
11:16 knewt2 joined 11:45 coldhead left
moritz_ anybody knows where the github bug tracker is? 11:48
11:50 kaare_ joined
wagnerf is there an easy way to do a deep copy of an object in perl 6 ? 11:56
moritz_ not really
the problem is that deep cloning is user specific
for example if you had a singleton object 11:57
and there was a low-level cloning primitive
that would break the assumptions of the singleton class
wagnerf well, for sure you need to be carefull with deep copy 11:58
but for many cases dclone was quite nice for me
ok, anyway, let's go with a copy constructor then 11:59
moritz_ copy constructor sounds so C++ :-) 12:01

apeiron hey all. I was wondering if someone could look over github.com/apeiron/perlfaq/commit/...1b47fd8b3f before I send a pull request. I'd like to clarify the perlfaq entries covering perl6 to more accurately reflect current reality. 13:48
13:57 felliott joined, MayDaniel joined
moritz_ takes a look 13:57
apeiron: the first answer seems to confuse the compiler ("Rakudo") and the distribution ("Rakudo Star") a bit 13:59

simon does anyone have an example parser written with perl6 rules? one that buildan AST.
moritz_ simon: for example the JSON modules 14:01
simon: see github.com/moritz/json/ Grammar.pm and Actions.pm
apeiron moritz_, I'll update it later today, and will post an updated commit URL. 14:02
moritz_ apeiron: "most developers writing Perl 5 have no intentions of switching to Perl 6 14:03
is that true?
apeiron IME
moritz_ do you have data for that?
simon moritz_, thanks!
apeiron hm, wonder if the perl survey covers it?
moritz_ I'd like a more neutral formulation, like being a perl 5 developer doesn't imply you want to change to Perl 6 at some point 14:04
"That said, Perl 6 has proven to be a fascinating research project for those doing Perl 5 development,
that's true, but I'd like to point out that for the PErl 6 folks it's not only a fascinating research project 14:05
colomon It makes it sound a bit like Perl 6 is strictly a research project designed to improve Perl 5.
... what moritz_++ said.
apeiron hmm
moritz_ "As Perl 6 is a reinvention of Perl 5"
I'd just say "Perl" here, not "Perl 5" 14:06

TimToady how hard can the rest be? :) 16:23
colomon Er, "common lisp niecza milestone"? What are you trying to do? 16:25
colomon is watching GameDay and struggling with IO::Prompter
TimToady he's adding a clisp emitter
colomon \o/ 16:28
that sounds very cool.
TimToady: Damian has an idiom here.... {?/<yes>/}
He seems to think this defines a sub which matches one argument to <yes> and then converts the match/no-match to a Bool. 16:29
It seems to fair very poorly in current Rakudo.
TimToady how is the block used? 16:30
colomon I like the looks of it, but I don't understand any reason it should actually work in p6.
$extractor = {?/<yes>/}; $retval = $extractor($input)
moritz_ it's just a closure that returns True if its argument contains the string 'yes', and False otherwise 16:31
TimToady it oughta work, but I'm not sure // is strong enough to create a $_ parameter in a bare closure
moritz_ just a boolified Match
TimToady (in rakudo)
colomon I understand that's what it wants to be, but is it supposed to work?

masak apeiron: I agree that describing Perl 6 as "the future" is not something neither of us wants.
apeiron nod 16:54
masak apeiron: fivers because they like Perl 5 and don't want to switch, sixers because they believe Perl 6 is here already.
apeiron right.

mak__ Can trace calls be done in rakudo?
jasonmay yep! I kind of cheated using github.com/jasonmay/io-multiplex-intermediary for all the socket logic
masak jasonmay: if you don't, I will.
moritz_ anotehr idea. write a fakeIO class that suports .print and .get, 16:56
16:56 roen left
jasonmay masak: I'm going to factor it out a bit first 16:56
masak jasonmay: sure, just don't forget to push it.
moritz_ and pass instances as :in and :out to the prompt function
that's the most black-boxy thing you can do without crazy IO stuff 16:57
colomon That's one heck of a good start, IMO.
masak apeiron: I know TimToady not-so-secretly believes that Perl 6 will eventually outdate Perl 5. but it may not be worth mentioning in the FAQ.
apeiron: I dislike the term "research project" almost to the point of wanting you to change it. almost. :) 16:58
apeiron: it sounds a bit like we don't use Perl 6 for stuff.
apeiron masak, others have pointed out it's a bit onesided and it'll be fixed.
masak good.
moritz_ backlogging considered harmful :-)
masak :P
TimToady only if it's based on goto 16:59

simon I noticed that my vim doesn't have perl6 highlighting. is there a syntax file that's not distributed yet? 17:02
masak apeiron: but I'm unsure what that final sentence is trying to say.
TimToady I'd say "The two are not mutually exclusive"
flussence simon: vim-perl on github has one
and vim 7.3, for that matter
simon flussence, thanks.
mak__ Is there syntax highlighting for emacs?
masak apeiron: *of course* in a sense, Perl 6 is meant to be a "replacement" for Perl 5, in the sense that it's not built to be less powerful or worse.
moritz_ github.com/petdance/vim-perl
masak apeiron: then again, that might be phrasing it too aggressively. 17:03
moritz_ too slow
apeiron masak, hmm. How about "The two are complimentary, not mutually exclusive." ?
(or complementary, whichever one is right :)
masak apeiron: "complEmentary"
TimToady comple
apeiron thanks. 17:04
masak apeiron: yes, then I see better what you want to say.
apeiron :D
masak apeiron: maybe even add that the two communities benefit from each other through collaboration and friendly competition.
apeiron: by the way, since September my blog is a p5-p6 hybrid :) 17:05
apeiron masak, I mentioned that in one place with Moose; do you think it bears mentioning further?
masak apeiron: well, I'm talking about community relations more than module ideas. I don't know if it bears re-mentioning. 17:06
apeiron masak, hmm. Personally I see the two as results of one another, but I'll be explicit. :)
masak indeed. they are related and affect each other. 17:07

TimToady many Perl 6 devs are Perl 5 users, but not Perl 5 devs
masak pmurias: I know the more I get involved with Perl 6, the more I learn about Perl 5 and get to respect the implementation, the CPAN modules, and the people of Perl 5.
apeiron hmm, perhaps I should clarify. When I say "perl5 devs" I mean "people writing perl5 code", not "people working on perl5 as in what you check out from perl.git" 17:10
17:10 VXZ joined
TimToady I mean the latter 17:10
could be a point of confusion
apeiron indeed, thus the clarification. :)
TimToady then what to you call the developers of Perl 5? 17:11

masak \o/
sorry about the confusion :) 17:12
apeiron "porters"
mak__ is there any way to do call tracing in rakudo? 17:16
masak apeiron: if there was a Perl 6 implementation with a decent p5-backcompat mode, p5-comparable speed, and access to CPAN, would you consider switching to Perl 6?
apeiron Tough question.
masak it's very hypothetical, I know.
apeiron I'm not sure if I should consider what you're saying as "if there was a Perl6 with the maturity of p5 and compatibility with it, would you consider switching?" 17:18
masak hm... maybe, but I can see a Perl 6 impl being *mature* without having those three things I listed. 17:19
apeiron Sure.
masak but yes, enough compatibility to not miss out form the great things of p5.
17:20 glow joined
apeiron That seems like "if there was something that was the best of both worlds, would you consider it?" 17:20
masak :)
well, we're not a two-pronged fork because we think it's *fun*. 17:21
mak__ problem with building rakudo
masak we're a two-pronged fork because we can't have the things we want in Perl 6 and the maturity of Perl 5 at this point in time. but we're building towards it.
mak__ build hangs after reaching src/gen/core.pm > src/gen/core.pir
masak mak__: how much RAM do you have? 17:22
mak__: likely massive swapping, not hanging.
mak__ 256mb
masak o.O
mak__: ^C
mak__ hmmm ok
masak mak__: step two: get more RAM...
mak__ :)
or I think I will work on niecza 17:23
masak that's an option as well. :)
17:23 wamba joined
mak__ or patch rakudo 17:23
the only thing is i don't how to solve that problem
masak it's probably not a one-patch problem...
mak__ oh
masak it's more of a design issue. 17:24
mak__ its basically putting that into one file
masak aye.
and there are clever people here aware of that problem.
don't want to discourage you, but...
mak__ can't that be broken up? I sure that would have thought about... or may im just you know ... saying
masak mak__: thing is, there are important reasons for keeping it in one file. 17:25
mak__ ok
masak mak__: specifically, that's how to get the scoping right.
but yes, it's an issue, especially as the setting grows.
mak__ not being able to install on system with lesser RAM's isnt good news 17:26
