rudi_s sortiz: Sorry for the late reply. Awesome, thank you. our works just fine. 00:30
Btw. is there a way to ignore the "is export" from a module. Like perl5's use Foo::Bar (); ?
00:30 musca` is now known as musca 00:34 rindolf left, pdcawley joined
sortiz rudi_s, That is the difference between 'use' and 'need': 'use' imply 'need' *and* 'import' 00:35
rudi_s sortiz: Just to be sure. need Foo::Bar in perl6 works like use Foo::Bar () in perl5? 00:36
sortiz rudi_s, Exactly. 00:37

timotimo i think it'd probably be easier to write the "dump all QAST nodes to json" as a single method on QAST::Node that knows all about the individual nodes we have and such 01:18
rather than splitting it out into multiple methods like the rest of the code already does, with its "dump extra info" and such
individual nodes, but especially individual roles
which is, i assume, where the majority of the complexity comes from

BenGoldberg class FILE is repr('CPointer') { }; 02:52
02:52 TimToady left 02:53 TimToady joined
BenGoldberg Note that in C, FILE is a struct, and you'd be using pointer-to-FILE all over the place, whereas 'class FILE ...' creates a class which behaves like a pointer... it's more like a c-level pointer-to-FILE. 02:54

toddr Hi, so perl6 doesn't have . in INC right? 03:04
03:07 toddr left
skids not by default 03:09
Juerd I keep wishing that . or ./lib was in there
Or at least ~/.lib
(Or something like it)
skids Better than having things hijacked because you didn't notice a .pm file in ./ IMO. 03:11
03:14 toddr joined
Juerd I guess 03:15
But what would be the reason not to have any homedir based thing in there by default?
toddr I missed the answer when my IRC client crashed didn't I? 03:16
Juerd Yes. The answer was yes.
Or, actually: <skids> not by default
There's PERL6LIB=. or perl6 -I. or use lib '.'; 03:17
toddr So I'm putting a presentation together. I'm wondering if there's any documentation on why this decision was made
Juerd <skids> Better than having things hijacked because you didn't notice a .pm file in ./ IMO.
MadcapJake` is that how it works in Perl 5?
toddr don't get me wrong. I applaud it.
skids I could see a subdir of homedir. Probably just NYI given the state of package installers, different systems have different conventions e.g. ~/.local 03:18
geekosaur yes, perl5 doesn't include . in @INC
toddr ?
geekosaur or ~ or any subdir thereof, by default
toddr no . is at the end of @INC in perl5
Juerd MadcapJake`: No, . is in @INC in Perl 5.
geekosaur sighs, too tired... 03:19
skids It is on my system.
Juerd MadcapJake`: And metacpan.org/pod/local::lib is sort-of popular. I wish something somewhere in ~ was in Perl6's include paths by default 03:20
Speaking of this. What is that array called in Perl 6?
MadcapJake` I'm guessing it has to do with CUR 03:21
$*REPO?
skids hrm. So that's why I couldn't find the precomps in ~/.local where I thought I put them with --prefix. Hardcoded to ~/.perl6 apparently or something. 03:23
MadcapJake` Seeing as technically modules are located in a separate precomped/mangled directory, it's more about maintaining true cross-platform unicode support
yeah precomps does not follow a make --prefix flag 03:24
skids is there a corresponding flag?
MadcapJake` skids, github.com/rakudo/rakudo/blob/nom/...ompilation 03:25
skids huh. But my hacked-up rakudobrew should be setting NQPs --prefix as well. 03:29
MadcapJake` --prefix wasn't properly passing to nqp until recently, i believe 03:30
skids nqp --show-config | grep prefix shows moar::prefix=/home/me/.local, but my precomps are still in ~/.perl6. 03:31
03:33 lostinfog left
MadcapJake` prefix only handles installs, precomp doesn't honor it 03:34
nqp dir only deals with prefix inside Configure.pl (iiuc) 03:35
03:35 geekosaur left
MadcapJake` I think the only way you can adjust precomp location is with RAKUDO_PREFIX 03:36
skids Then I don't get github.com/rakudo/rakudo/blob/nom/...try.pm#L69 03:37
03:37 geekosaur joined 03:38 cognominal left, noganex_ joined
MadcapJake` maybe RAKUDO_PREFIX is being set somewhere? I'm really an NQP noob but a glance at Configure.pl doesn't really show prefix going anywhere special (must be wrong though...) 03:39
03:39 cognominal joined
skids well, it's not in my shell's env. Too tired to figure this out now though. 03:40
timotimo github.com/rakudo/rakudo/blob/nom/...Config.nqp - could this be interesting?
MadcapJake` maybe it's this: github.com/perl6/nqp/blob/master/C...ure.pl#L93 03:41
03:41 noganex left
MadcapJake` yeah i think it's that and then it's stored here: github.com/perl6/nqp/blob/master/C...#L235-L239 03:43
(for MoarVM)
oi, makefiles are totally brick walls for me :P 03:44
03:44 toddr left
MadcapJake` honestly it looks like prefix is just used there to install to the right location, I'm not really understanding how nqp::backendconfig attains its data 03:45
skids It looks like the 'home' repo doesn't have a configurable to alter it. 03:50

Hotkeys Well I did that poorly
But you get the gist
saaki yes, thanks 06:05
Hotkeys In a sequence like that * + * acts like $^a + $^b
But at the end of a sequence it basically acts as inf
Unless you make it a conditional
like ?p6> say (1,2,4 ... * > 30) 06:06
Er
Wrong command
And no new line
But
It does what it looks like it does
saaki can't seem to find those uses of * in docs 06:07
Hotkeys design.perl6.org/S02.html#The_Whatever_Object 06:08
Here's some from the spec
saaki really like the docs for the most part, just tough to find some of these cool little patterns there 06:09
Hotkeys yeah 06:10
the docs aren't perfect but they'll improve with time
jdv79 you could grep the setting for * and Whatever maybe 06:11
Hotkeys Anything you can't find in the docs you can probably find in the specs with a little elbow grease
saaki have managed to dig up some things from design.* via google, bit surprising sometimes. should probably just read them through. 06:12
Hotkeys lol
be aware not everything in the spec is implemented yet
but whatevers implemented is probably in the spec
if that makes sense :p 06:13
saaki it does
would like to contribute, seems nqp needs some work 06:17

09:59 rindolf joined
RabidGravy either really, in portaudio there is a struct DeviceInfo but everywhere else in the API it is reference by an "index" 09:59
so it would be nice to store the index in the class somehow but not make that appear to the native struct 10:00

jnthn class WrapperThingy { has TheCStructType $.foo handles *; has $.index; }
Hotkeys What does handles do
I haven't seen that one before 10:02
Is it a native thing
RabidGravy it makes the methods of the attribute appear as methods of the object
no not native

maybe... if I'd add a serialize function to NativeRef, I'd dump its value and maybe get a clue what it is 10:17

jnthn gregf_: self is included; we don't consider self special. If you wanted to call the method as a code object directly you'd have to pass something to fill the invocant slot. 11:09

Woodi do self/this thingies are realy necesarry ? it's "how it works" currently but you do not pass car somewhere so there car can start engine... currently objects "use" methods in the classes so method need to know which object called it but can it be another way ? objects "slurps" method from class storage and call it ? 11:25
hi today :)
tweakism Woodi: a method isn't necessarily called on an instance of the class that defines it. 11:27
11:27 labster left
Woodi tweakism: but that is special case of OO system you have 11:27
tweakism other languages provide a keyword like 'this', but I like the explicit-self-parameter style personally. 11:28
Woodi: I don't think 'allows inheritence' is very special among OO implementations, is it?
Woodi tweakism: no idea what is allow inheritance system... 11:29
tweakism Woodi: Vehicle defines wheels(). Car inherits from Vehicle. somecar.wheels() calls Vehicle.wheels() on an instance of Car. (assuming Car doesn't override wheels()) 11:30
11:31 Praise left
Woodi tweakism: and what is *popular* in industry is not important at all. what's is better is. 11:31
tweakism *shrug* 11:32
gregf_ Woodi: self/this are not mandatory afaik
Woodi at the end you will hit valit range of specialisations usefull in particular cases :)
gregf_ for example in this case: self 'is' needed:
Woodi gregf_: but it's like current OO implementations work internally. i wonder what about something else :) 11:33
gregf_ class Foo { def bar;end }; class Bar < Foo; def baz; self.class.superclass.instance_method(:bar).bind(self).();end; end <== in ruby
Woodi : even in Java 'this' is not mandatory 11:34
Woodi gregf_: but it is there, i think. syntax isn't important 11:35
tweakism ultimately, they are just different syntaxes for the same thing, I think. not entirely certain, but I think.
the car object *does* get "passed" to the start_engine method in either case; making it an explicit parameter makes it easy to reason about. 11:36
Woodi gregf_: what this Ruby thing do ? you have variable bar in Foo but later use method bar...
tweakism some languages make a real mess w/ this (JavaScript).
Woodi tweakism: yes. but maybe something other have sense too ? and maybe it can be better in some cases ? 11:37
gregf_ Woodi: its a mental way by which a specific class calls a different method from the generic/parent class :| #ofcourse s/{//;
RabidGravy right off out for a bit 11:39
Woodi gregf_: it's make sense. why clone methods into *every* object, would be waste. but this system just use objects like varibles...
tweakism Woodi: so you're saying design a language that requires neither a self parameter nor a self/this keyword?
Woodi tweakism: trying things (or just thinking) is like science works :) 11:40
jnthn Woodi: You might find CLOS interesting :)
Woodi jnthn: I need to learn Lisp first probably... :) 11:41
jnsso it's already invented ??
jnthn*
using objects is indirection via pointer :) 11:42
jnthn Woodi: Well, they have a different way of looking at objects/methods is all. Objects don't have methods, and the "methods" can have multiple invocants
jast so you're thinking about a system to reference objects wihout referencing them?
jnthn Actors are also intereting to look at, and probably closer to the original thinking of OO. 11:43
Woodi jast: I think not. objects just take methods from class and use it on fields
11:43 RabidGravy left, kid51 left
jast depends. not all implementations of object orientiation even *have* classes... 11:43
jnthn The trouble with OO naming wise is it puts the focus on objects, whereas the interesting thing is the messages. 11:44
ilmari like javascript, to take random example
+a
jnthn found OO design a lot easier when he started desining message first, then grouping them by invariants to discover the objects, rather than trying to work out what objects should exist 11:45
*designing
Woodi jnthn: discover ? you mean paper-pencil-design ? 11:46

colomon is trying to figure out how that makes any sense
moritz a simplistic approach to OO design that works surprisingly well is to start with a bunch of subroutines, and see what data they need in common and pass around everywhere
jast I take a data-centric view, too, usually 11:47
moritz then you can start putting the common data into one or several related objects, using Common Sense[tm]
jnthn Woodi: For many design tasks I use pen/paper or a whiteboard at first, but I quickly move to sketching in code instead.
jast what's almost never a good idea is starting with tons of base classes and building up a huge hierarchy
ilmari premature generalisation is the root of much mess 11:48
jnthn Woodi: But I mostly just mean that I found that "what classes should I have" and "what fields to they need" tend to come later than "what behaviors should the system have" for me.
ilmari you don't know what the general patterns are until you've implemented/designed several similar things
jast I quite like composition like with P6's roles
tweakism people want to inherit because you can, but has-a relations seem to usually be more appropriate, yes?

jnthn pmurias: So it may become less of a problem than today 12:03
12:03 spebern joined
jnthn pmurias: But yeah, potentially any closure might be serialized and the demand to do so may even come from a totally separate compilation unit. 12:03
12:04 wamba left
pmurias I could generate both a serializable and unserializable version and just switch to the latter once we know that no serialization will happen, but it seems like something that would just end up adding to much complexity 12:06
jnthn Plus you can't know so easily...
pmurias yes, it would require user "pragmas" or some other things, and compiling Perl 6 is when we care about NQP speed the most 12:07
more and more I'm coming to the conclusion that I should have a seperate analysis pass before actually compiling to js 12:08
